Agriculture has a strong heritage in Wisconsin as one of the driving forces behind our state’s economy. In order to keep the sector growing, Senator Johnson has supported initiatives that will expand new and current markets to share our great made-in-Wisconsin products.
Senator Johnson firmly believes that the top priority of the federal government is the defense of America and the American people. That’s why Senator Johnson has supported the bipartisan National Defense Authorization Act every year since he was sworn in as a United States senator in 2011.
Before serving in the Senate, Senator Johnson volunteered as the business co-chairman of the Partners in Education Council of the Oshkosh Chamber of Commerce. He worked with teachers, principals and local leaders in Oshkosh to help provide students with the tools they needed to lead productive and successful lives.
The United States has been the greatest force for good in the history of the world. This nation has promoted individual rights, free markets, self-determination, and religious freedom. Presidents of both parties have consistently promoted these goals, and at times they have used international alliances and coalition efforts to do so.
The health care system in the United States has been in need of reform for many years, but Obamacare was not the solution it purported to be. It has only exacerbated the issue for many people and created a new set of problems for the country.
Senator Johnson supports free and fair trade. We live in a global economy and for our economy to grow and to support and create high-paying jobs for the American people in the 21st century, we must pursue free and fair trade negotiations.
