WAUSAU, Wis. -

Wisconsin's two U.S. senators have visited the state this week to talk about economic issues.

Republican U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson stopped by Hsu's Ginseng Enterprises north of Wausau on Tuesday to discuss the creation of jobs, the ongoing situation in Iraq and a functional Congress.

He said the county's high business tax hinders the creation of well-paying jobs.
Johnson also spoke about ISIS, federal debt and the low approval rating of Congress.

Democratic U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin visited the Marinette Marine Corp. on Tuesday to talk about the Littoral Combat Ship program and the results of two federal audits.

The reports pointed to concerns about the warships' maintenance, crew and operation costs.

She said improvements will be made as the program continues. Marinette Marine is the city's biggest employer.
