Kudos to RoJo!

Kinda nice to find one positive nugget about our senior Senator.

Former Central Intelligence Agency Director R. James Woolsey warned lawmakers that natural and manmade electromagnetic pulses present an “existential threat to the American people” and accused congressional and White House officials of ignoring a potential catastrophe.

Testifying before the Senate Homeland Security & Government Affairs Committee, Woolsey, who served two years under President Bill Clinton, warned that EMP is “a clear and present danger and that something must be done to protect the electric grid and other life sustaining critical infrastructures — immediately.”...

...Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), the committee chairman, intends to address the potential catastrophe by proposing an immediate $100 million congressional allotment to address the vulnerabilities extent in the nation’s power grid.

The U.S., Johnson said, needs to “pull our heads out of the sand.”

“This is a threat that is real and we need to acknowledge it,” Johnson said.

Woolsey told Johnson – the lone lawmaker sitting through the hearing for the first hour and a half – that EMP “is not science fiction.

 It would be very easy to find FAR MORE than $100 million if RoJo would have ....oh, I dunno.....found the courage to eliminate ObozoCare.  But it's a start.
