Tammy Baldwin confident she can evaluate federal budget without GOP help
Wisconsin’s senator-elect Rep. Tammy Baldwin, D, is quite confident that she does not need fellow Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wisc., to explain the federal budget to her, reported the Huffington Post, after Johnson made comments about working with Baldwin that some on the left quickly dubbed offensive “mansplaining.”
“I was a double major in college in mathematics and political science, and I served for six years on the House Budget Committee in my first six years in the House,” Baldwin told The Huffington Post.
“And I am very confident that when proposals come before the U.S. Senate, I will be able to evaluate them as to how they benefit or harm middle-class Wisconsinites,” she continued.
On Wednesday, Johnson told the Associated Press, “Hopefully I can sit down and lay out for her my best understanding of the federal budget because they’re simply the facts.”
