Johnson Tours Skana Aluminum Co.

"Congratulations to Skana Aluminum on its fifth anniversary. As I learned on my tour this past weekend, Skana believes that the art of aluminum manufacturing is the heritage of the talented employees of the Manitowoc community. I couldn’t agree more. Having spent the majority of my life on a team dedicated to serving our customers and building a business, I thoroughly enjoyed my time with the visionaries at Skana. Thank you for your hospitality and for your commitment to quality and to Wisconsin." - rj

Originally published in The Wall Street Journal
Senator Johnson wrote an op-ed last week for The Wall Street Journal on the impending decision by the Supreme Court in the King v. Burwell case.
He wrote, "Early this summer the Supreme Court will render a decision on King v. Burwell, the case challenging the IRS workaround that allows ObamaCare subsidies to be paid through federal exchanges. Many on the right believe that if the justices rule against the administration, it would be the final stake in the heart of ObamaCare. Nothing could be further from the truth." Read more here.
