Six Truths About Sean Duffy’s Dangerous Six Point Agenda

Fresh off his win in tonight’s Republican Primary, Sean Duffy (WI-07) already has some explaining to do to Central and Northern Wisconsin families over his dangerous policy proposals for Wisconsin.  As Sean Duffy discusses his plans for Congress, he has not been truthful with Wisconsin voters about how damaging his proposals are to our nation’s economy and Wisconsin’s future prosperity.

“Sean Duffy’s proposals are dangerously out of step with Central and Northern Wisconsin values and priorities,” said Gabby Adler, Midwestern Regional Press Secretary with the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.  “When the curtain is pulled back and voters are allowed to know the truth about Sean Duffy’s ideas, they see his real plans to put wealthy special interests ahead of Wisconsin’s future prosperity.  The only thing more disheartening than Duffy’s dangerous agenda and it perilous economic effects, is his blatant attempt to cover up the real facts.”
