Joe Biden recently passed his infrastructure bill through the US Senate. The most amazing aspect of the package was that it drew the support of 19 Republicans. Infrastructure, of course, is popular with all voters whether they be Democrats, Republicans or Independents.
That doesn’t mean that Donald Trump and his MAGA disciples didn’t try to ruin the bills chances. Some senators were not going to vote for the bill no matter how much it helped their state. Ron Johnson is one of those lawmakers.
During a recent interview with Fox’s Dan Bongino, Johnson remarked, “And, I’ll be the first to admit, I didn’t read the thing. I was able to glean pretty quickly on that there was no way I was going to be able to support that pig…”
"Sen. Ron Johnson was one of 30 Republicans who voted against the recently passed $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill — yet in an appearance on the conservative Dan Bongino Show, Johnson said he hadn’t even read the bill." https://t.co/b2kdpXHfcL

Philip Shulman, from the Democratic Party of Wisconsin, remarked, “Once again, Ron Johnson’s complete lack of leadership and disregard for the office he holds is on full display. In refusing to even read the bipartisan infrastructure plan, Ron Johnson sent a very clear message to Wisconsinites that their interests and needs don’t matter to him
