MADISON, Wis. — Ron Johnson had another busy week on the campaign trail convincing Wisconsin voters that he’s in Washington to serve himself. Johnson told Wisconsin voters:
- It isn’t “society’s responsibility to take care of other people’s children.” But Johnson had no problem changing the 2017 tax bill in a way that benefitted himself and his richest donors. His own multi-million dollar fortune has roughly doubled while he’s been in office.
- Claimed once again that Social Security is a “ponzi scheme,” falsely saying that the trust fund, which is worth trillions of dollars, has “no value.”
- Held a dangerous disinformation event about the safety of the COVID vaccine.
“Ron Johnson worked overtime to deliver massive tax breaks that benefited him and his biggest donors but thinks that Wisconsin children and senior citizens should be left to fend for themselves. It’s clear that Ron Johnson is in Washington to enrich himself and prioritize his self-serving agenda,” said Democratic Party of Wisconsin Senate Communications Advisor Philip Shulman.
