Johnson Statement on $1.9 Trillion Democrat Wish List Bill

WASHINGTON — U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) said the following after the U.S. Senate voted to pass the Democrats’ $1.9 trillion Covid relief bill:

“This is not Covid relief - it is a massive debt burden that further mortgages our children’s future. I support helping people truly affected by the pandemic, but we should have targeted the unspent $1 trillion from previous bills first. The economy is already in a strong recovery, and this bill could spark harmful inflation. It was unneeded and unwise.”
