Highlights from Senator Johnson’s 11-Year Tenure Include Fighting to Prolong the Pandemic & Raise Health Care Costs

Washington, DC – According to multiple sources, Senator Ron Johnson intends to announce his bid for reelection for the U.S. Senate. Just this week, Senator Johnson continued to push disinformation about COVID-19, downplaying the effectiveness of vaccines and suggesting science can’t “create something better than God” to fight the virus. Senator Johnson was a prominent voice in the fight to destroy the Affordable Care Act, raise health care costs, and rip coverage from families.  In response, Protect Our Care Executive Director Brad Woodhouse issued the following statement: 

“Senator Ron Johnson’s record on health care and spreading COVID-19 misinformation is as abysmal as they come. Over the years, Ron Johnson voted to rip coverage from 416,600 Wisconsinites and strip protections from 2.4 million Wisconsinites with pre-existing conditions. Senator Johnson opposes provisions before Congress that would lower drug prices, expand coverage, improve care for seniors, and level the playing field for working families — policies that are supported by Wisconsonites from all walks of life. Republicans like Senator Johnson are completely out of touch with the economic and health worries that keep families up at night as they continue to put industry profits ahead of their constituents. Wisconsin voters are sick and tired of Ron Johnson’s dangerous antics and will undoubtedly reject his disastrous health care agenda in November.”
