Ron Johnson started his own manufacturing business in Oshkosh in 1979. He knows what it takes to create good jobs in our state — and what a strong private sector can do if we get Washington out of the way.
Senator Feingold, on the other hand, is a lawyer, a professor, and a professional politician, meaning he has NO idea what it takes to grow jobs — only government. Just take a look at his record…
Here are 5 Feingold Fails when it comes to jobs and manufacturing:
Feingold’s average rating from the National Association of Manufacturers since 1998 stands at 12%.
Feingold’s most recent rating from the National Association of Manufacturers before the people of Wisconsin fired him was 8%.
Feingold’s rating by the National Federation of Independent Business in 2009 was 31% – the lowest of any Senator.
Feingold, according to the Chamber of Commerce, was the 2nd worst Senator for business — the only one worse, self-admitted socialist Bernie Sanders.
Feingold has repeatedly voted for burdensome regulations that would cost Wisconsin jobs.
There is, literally, no other Washington D.C. professional politician who is worse for business than Senator Russ Feingold.
