Ron Johnson Votes to Block
Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal
Putting partisan politics first, Johnson voted to block consideration of a bipartisan infrastructure deal to create good-paying jobs and invest in communities across the country
Today, U.S. Sen. Johnson voted to block debate on a bipartisan infrastructure package that’s an investment in growing the economy and creating good-paying jobs in communities across Wisconsin and the country.
In the weeks and months ahead, Johnson will have to explain his position to voters, who know firsthand how much it would mean to send infrastructure dollars into communities across Wisconsin.
“Americans are sick and tired of Republicans in Congress standing in the way of investments in good-paying jobs, clean energy, and critical infrastructure like roads and bridges, clean water, and high-speed internet,” said Brad Bainum, American Bridge 21st Century spokesperson. “Johnson’s vote today proves to Wisconsin voters that Republicans are the party of the rich and powerful — because just as Republicans always line up to pass tax giveaways to big corporations and the wealthy, they’re always the ones standing in the way of policies and programs that will lift up working families.”
