MADISON — The Democratic Party of Wisconsin is continuing to profile ultraconservative, Republican Party of Wisconsin-endorsed U.S. Senate candidate Leah Vukmir‘s extreme policy positions, today highlighting Vukmir’s support for the scam Republican tax law that rewards large corporations and the wealthy few at the expense of hardworking Wisconsinites.

Across the board, the Republican tax law that Vukmir’s campaigning on is a transparent giveaway to the wealthy few that will inflict real harm on hardworking Wisconsinites. The GOP law:
