NEWINGTON, Conn. (AP) – Republican Senate hopeful Linda McMahon is proposing tax cuts for the middle class and businesses among other economic proposals she says will jump-start the economy.

She also proposed a 1 percent cut in federal spending, with some exceptions.

The former wrestling executive announced her package at a woodworking company in Newington on Wednesday. It marked her first news conference since she announced her second bid for the U.S. Senate.

McMahon ran for Senate in 2010, but lost to now-Sen. Richard Blumenthal after spending $50 million of her own money on the campaign.

As in 2010, McMahon pitched herself on Wednesday as a job creator. She said the business perspective is missing from the economic debate in Washington.

    Sad that people of CT voted for a Combat Liar. No way would I lift a finger to defend anything he is a proponent for. I have stopped all contributions associated with the State of CT until he is removed from office. A disgrace to America.

    Wouldn’t it be great to see McMahon and Blumenthal on the floor of the US Senate together, fighting over a bill? Literally. On the floor. Fighting. It would look like those Parliamentary fist fights in European or Asian countries Parliament meetings. Probably would be a close match, too! One is a former wrestling exec, and the other is a former soldie… uh, never mind.
