Sen. Ron Johnson’s Failed Record for Veterans in Rural Communities
Senator Ron Johnson has spent his time in Washington selling out Wisconsin’s rural communities.
Senator Ron Johnson has spent his time in Washington selling out Wisconsin’s rural communities, including our veterans. He was one of just three senators to oppose a bipartisan bill aimed at reducing VA wait times and making it easier for veterans in small towns to access healthcare near their homes.
The bill, which allowed veterans living more than forty miles from a VA facility to access private health care, was supported by 93 senators. It provided a critical lifeline for veterans across Wisconsin who may live hours away from the nearest VA hospital. Senator Johnson, however, was more interested in pleasing his fellow Washington Republicans party ideology than protecting Wisconsin’s veterans.
“Rather than fight for Wisconsinites, Johnson sided with ultra-conservative Republicans to oppose access to healthcare for veterans in our rural communities. He’s sold out Wisconsin veterans in favor of Washington partisanship and service to the billionaires who fund his re-election bid,” said Harry Hartfield spokesman for the Democratic Party of Wisconsin.
