‘Shotgun’ COVID relief

Empower Wisconsin | Dec. 21, 2020  

U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson says his objection to the latest massive pandemic relief package centers on Congress’ fiscal irresponsibility and the debt-ridden future it’s creating. 

“Before we further mortgage our children’s future,” the Oshkosh Republican said, maybe the federal government should first deal with the $600 billion it hasn’t spent or obligated from the first CARES Act. 

Lawmakers spent the weekend cobbling together a $900 billion stimulus plan despite growing concerns over the ballooning federal deficit and debt. 

In a speech Friday on the Senate floor, Johnson criticized what he considers a “shotgun approach” to stimulus checks rather than implementing reforms to deliver funding to Americans who really need to relief. 

Watch the senator’s speech here.
