Ron Johnson is Nobody's Senator, Not Yours

Wisconsin had elected the self-effacing Herb Kohl a US Senator after he pledged to be guided by the merits of issues. And promised to be "Nobody's Senator But Yours."

Now we have the cartoonish, Bizarro World opposite of the retired Herb Kohl - a show-boating Senator 
Ron Johnson grinds Senate to halt, irritating many
His decision to become the leading critic of the $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill also puts him on the record against $1,400 stimulus checks to millions of households and providing a $400 increase in unemployment benefits to the jobless... 
“The Republican Senator from Wisconsin, the same Senator who—last summer—proudly declared that he would oppose even ‘a dime’ more in COVID relief, the same Senator who spent a Senate hearing on Capitol Security reading conspiracy theories into the record, and said that Jan. 6th wasn’t an armed insurrection—decided to make himself the face of Republican opposition to the bill,” Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) said.

I must disagree with you.

Nobody's Senator but Putin's.
