Johnson urges inaction on vaping

You thought he couldn't do worse for people and the country than carrying water for Trump on Ukraine, but RoJo has added eased vaping

to a bucket list without end. Or morality.
Ron Johnson sends letter to Donald Trump urging him to abandon rules for vaping flavors
Please don't trouble special-interest obeisant Johnson with facts reported Nov. 8th: 
Federal health officials have identified vitamin E acetate in the lung fluids of 29 people sickened in the outbreak of dangerous vaping-related lung injuries. The discovery is a “breakthrough” that points to the oil as a likely culprit in the outbreak that has sickened more than 2,000 people and killed at least 39, a top official said Friday.
But wait: Johnson's got a history with vape store operators and their customers:
A vaper voting bloc?
Vocal vapers point to Wisconsin Republican Sen. Ron Johnson's shocking election victory in 2016 as proof of their power.
Johnson became a folk hero on vaping websites after pushing back on proposed Food and Drug Administration vaping regulations. 
Final point: Don't let years of credit due Joel Kleefisch go up in smoke:

New vaping rules might give Joel Kleefisch the vapors

As the US Food and Drug Administration moves against the health hazards of e-cigarette vaping let's not forget - - noted here - - that Wisconsin State Rep. Joel Kleefisch, (R-Oconomowoc), in his inimitable style, has long been a vaping defender via news release:
Vapor devices contain nicotine without the tar, old mattresses and rat poison contained in tobacco cigarettes and cigars. In the body, nicotine has virtually the same effects as when caffeine is consumed...
Right in Lake Country, the electronic vapor device industry is booming at Johnson Creek Enterprises...Businesses like this have opened the door to a flourishing industry that's mission is providing consumers a choice other than smoking tobacco products... 
It's not governments job tell people of the legal age that they are not allowed to partake in a legal activity... 
The nanny state needs to stop interfering in our daily lives. It's no longer a matter of whether there will be efforts for government to step in and start up the vapor patrols.

I thought Melania had a son and she wanted a bill? I wonder who will win? legions of lobbyists and Ron Johnson or Barron's mother?
