WAUSAU, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin's two senators are talking about economic issues as they make stops in the state.

U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson stopped by Hsu's Ginseng Enterprises 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. He said companies don't want to set up shop in a place where taxes are double what they are elsewhere.

Johnson also spoke about ISIS, federal debt and the low approval rating of Congress.

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.
