ron-johnsonThe “Democrats Were Right Again” Edition.


MADISON - Senator Johnson has finally decided it might be worthwhile to listen to Wisconsinites about TSA lines, but only after a gentle push from Democrats.

For months TSA lines have grown longer and longer. Millions of Americans have been stuck waiting for hours at security checkpoints. Senator Johnson chairs the Senate committee that oversees the TSA, but he was too busy explaining the difference between supporting and endorsing Donald Trump to care about the issue.

In fact, while he's been chair of the Senate's Homeland Security Committee, the number of agents and scanners at airports has fallen.

To be fair, the Senator's focus has been on courting Republican mega donors who fly private jets and don’t need to worry about the problems of everyday Wisconsinites. So since the Senator couldn’t be bothered with the issue, we decided to help him out. On Monday we sent a press release highlighting Johnson’s inaction on the issue.

Four days later Johnson miraculously decided to hold a hearing on the issue. You're welcome for the advice Senator.

ron-johnsonMADISON - In an interview on CNN’s “New Day” this morning, Johnson grinned and held back laughter as he tried to claim there was a difference between "supporting" and "endorsing" presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. But his stand up act was too much for host Alisyn Camerota. She laughed as Johnson pulled a Marco Rubio and kept repeating his talking points over and over again - a regular Robot Ron.

MADISON - Donald Trump's own comments in 2006 indicate that he hoped the housing market would collapse, saying that while average citizens lost their homes, jobs, and savings, he would be able to profit by buying their property at a low.

martha-laning"The Democratic Party has long been committed to ensuring that all Americans, especially the most most vulnerable, have access to housing that is safe, decent, and affordable," said Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chairwoman Martha Laning.

"Our party is continuing that work to this day because we want every American, regardless of income, to have a roof over their head for a fair chance to get ahead," she continued. "You shouldn't have to be a millionaire to buy a home, save for the future, and give your children better than you had."

"We can't risk having someone in the White House who would dare bet against the American people for their own personal gain," concludes Laning. "Donald Trump clearly does not have the best interest of the American people at heart and he does not have the temperament or stability to be President of the United States."

"Donald Trump is a risk we cannot take," she said.
