Sen. Johnson Votes Against Omnibus Spending Bill

WASHINGTON - On Thursday, U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson released the following statement regarding his vote against the $1.5 trillion spending package.

“Once again Congress is voting on a massive bill - 2,700 pages - that no one has had time to read, spends $1.5 trillion, and further mortgages our children's future. We just learned inflation hit a forty year high at 7.9% - wiping out wage gains and making life more difficult. Even though this bill funds many important priorities, I simply cannot support such a dysfunctional and harmful process.”
