WASHINGTON – Today, U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) issued the following statement regarding President Joe Biden’s visit to La Crosse, Wisconsin.
“What President Biden needs to learn and acknowledge today is that Wisconsin employers are finding it almost impossible to hire the workers they need because federal unemployment benefits provide an enormous incentive not to work. Biden and his fellow Democrats refuse to acknowledge their socialist policies are creating greater dependency, hampering economic recovery, and further mortgaging our children’s future. Everyone agrees we must invest in infrastructure. Unfortunately, we’ve recently added $6 trillion to our national debt that now exceeds $28 trillion. A fiscally responsible infrastructure bill would use the $700 billion of ‘Covid relief’ spending that isn’t spent in this fiscal year and repurpose that amount for real infrastructure – not new entitlements.”
