Democrats love to decry “dark money” – but that hasn’t stopped them from using a dark money group to push false attacks against Senator Ron Johnson. In a new ad, the liberal PAC Majority Forward swung but desperately missed in a lousy attempt to come after the Senator’s voting record against China.
The ad laughably blames Senator Johnson for inflation and suggests that he hasn’t been tough enough on China, but here are the facts:
- Senator Johnson voted against the Democrats’ “China Bill,” which is far too weak on protecting American intellectual property theft by the CCP, fails to hold China accountable for COVID-19, and includes billions of dollars in deficit spending.
- In January 2022, even PolitiFact debunked the false claim by the DSCC that “Sen. Ron Johnson has been rewarding companies that outsource to China.” The attack cites only the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act – even though experts say there is no clear evidence that the law led U.S. companies to move jobs to China.
- Senator Johnson introduced Protect America’s Innovation and Economic Security from CCP Act, which would correctly call the U.S. Department of Justice’s (DOJ) China Initiative the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Initiative. The China Initiative was a national security program established in 2018 to defend against espionage and influence campaigns of the CCP, and it was cancelled by the Biden Administration.
As Wisconsin families continue to grapple with Joe Biden’s “temporary” inflation and watch Joe Biden refuse to hold communist China accountable for obstructing the investigation into COVID-19, downplay China’s egregious human rights record as “different norms,” and empower China to expand their influence, Wisconsinites know that Biden and Democrats are responsible for weakening the United States on the world stage.
“If Democrats want to find the party that has kowtowed to China and raised costs, they should look in a mirror.” – Republican Party of Wisconsin Rapid Response Director Mike Marinella
