Johnson Opposes Biden’s $1.9 Trillion COVID Relief Package

In Washington, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi wants to pass President Joe Biden’s stimulus plan within two weeks. Wisconsin’s Republican U.S. Senator opposes the nearly two trillion dollar proposal 

“Something will pass, it’ll be massive, we don’t have the money to pay for it. By and large, what we should’ve been looking at what was unspent from the last four trillion dollars and really focusing on how to target that to the people who really need it.” 

Senator Ron Johnson has concerns the federal spending will fuel inflation. The House and Senate voted along partisan lines Friday to approve the budget plan, beginning the process of turning Biden’s stimulus proposal into legislation.
