MADISON, Wis. – In his most recent self-serving diatribe, Ron Johnson lambasted investing in chip manufacturing in the United States, even with the impact it would have bolstering supply chains, fighting inflation, and creating good paying jobs. Despite Johnson previously changing the tax law in a way that benefitted himself and handed his biggest donors a windfall of hundreds of millions of dollars, he is trying to kill this legislation because he believes it’s “picking winners and losers.”
“Ron Johnson is fighting against fixing our supply chains, bringing down inflation, and the creation of good paying jobs – all because it doesn’t fit into his self-serving agenda,” said Democratic Party of Wisconsin Senate Communications Advisor Philip Shulman.
Johnson has also:
- Opposed the bipartisan Made In America Act that strengthens requirements for the federal government to buy products and services from American businesses.
- Refused to fight for more than a thousand good paying manufacturing jobs in his hometown of Oshkosh.
- Cheered on outsourcing, despite it shipping jobs away from Wisconsin.
