WASHINGTON – U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) commented on the harmful impact of Democrats’ costly funding proposals and the failure of the Biden administration to handle the crisis at the southern border during an appearance on Fox Business’ ‘Mornings With Maria’ on Friday.
A video of the interview can be found here, and excerpts are below.
“From my standpoint, I am all for infrastructure. Our roads and bridges have been ignored for far too long, but we’ve already over-authorized spending. Let’s repurpose that amount of money. We don’t have to borrow more money, and we don’t have to further mortgage our children’s future.”
“They’re enacting their radical, left wing, socialist agenda. It’s what people like me were warning America about prior to the November 2020 election. What’s frightening about this Maria, is people are already suffering from all this borrowing. If you’re a retiree, and you’re on fixed income, what kind of return are you getting on your savings? If inflation takes off, those same retirees are going to be harmed, people on the lower end of the income spectrum are also going to be harmed. So there are real consequences to all this deficit spending and our growing debt.”
“President Biden and his administration are basically reversing all the positive policies of President Trump, a more competitive tax system, they’re going to start over regulating the economy again. Take a look at what they’re doing on border, dismantling what actually worked to reduce the flow of unaccompanied children and family units that are subject to those depredations, that inhumanity that you were talking to Jason Chaffetz about. What really needs to be pointed out is the Biden administration, Vice President Harris she was on my committee, they were fully aware of the human toll of their border policies, but they’re reversing all the successful policies of President Trump and I hope America is paying attention.”
