MADISON — At tonight’s GOP Senate candidate forum, Kevin Nicholson just restated his support for the scam Republican tax law that’s a corrupt giveaway to big corporations and the wealthy few — all shouldered by hardworking Wisconsinites.

Just 39% of Americans support congressional Republicans’ scam law, which nonpartisan experts say will hike taxes on 53 percent of Americans at full implementation. But Nicholson and Leah Vukmir support the law anyway — and they’re actively campaigning on it, because it’s a great way for the Republican candidates to show megadonors and corporate special interests that they would work for them in Washington.

But at the end of the day, Americans just don’t like Republicans’ tax scam because it:

The sham GOP tax law is a corrupt giveaway to billionaires like the Koch brothers — who are each set to become $1 billion richer each year under the GOP law. And even as big, highly profitable corporations like Kimberly-Clark, here in Wisconsin reap massive tax breaks under the law, the companies are nevertheless spending their tax cut windfalls on stock buybacks and laying off workers.

The GOP tax law embodies the worst of Washington corruption and everything that Vukmir and Nicholson are running to protect.
