Madison, Wis., — Today, Senator Ron Johnson voted against funding the government, supporting a government shutdown that would slow economic growth and impact federal programs Wisconsinites care about, including potential loss in pay for essential workers like TSA, border patrol, and vaccine developers at the FDA. In response, Democratic Party of Wisconsin Senate Communications Advisor Philip Shulman released the following statement:

“Ron Johnson is too busy figuring out ways to dodge paying his fair share in taxes to care about the Wisconsinites who would suffer if he’d gotten the government shutdown he wanted. Once again, Ron Johnson is abandoning Wisconsin to instead focus on his self-serving political games.”
