Photos: Speaker Ryan’s Made-In-Wisconsin Business Tour
While Washington Democrats continue to deny the new tax law is helping middle-income families, Republicans continue to hear directly from American workers and businesses who are benefitting. Earlier this week, Speaker Ryan visited four made-in-Wisconsin businesses, located in the First District, to hear how the companies, and their workers, are benefitting from tax reform.

In his nearly 20 years in Congress, no company has ever taken the speaker up on his offer of pushing buttons on the machine. All of that changed when the speaker visited AMTEC. It may have taken a few tries, but with a little coaching, the speaker finally starts the machine.
