Ron Johnson vs. Wisconsin Manufacturers??

Amazing story here.

An exasperated Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) tweeted his frustration late Thursday after the Senate on a 91-4 vote adopted a measure that cuts U.S. tariffs on hundreds of products imported from China.

“The ‘China bill’ now reduces tariffs on hundreds of products made in #China. Why would we cut tariffs on China in a bill to improve American’s ability to compete with China? And only @HawleyMO, @TomCottonAR @BernieSanders, and I voted against it. #Strangebedfellows,” Rubio said in his tweet....

Ron Johnson voted FOR the 'enrich China/screw US' bill.


But there's even more!!

...the national security safeguards in the bill to protect U.S. technology research are inadequate.

“What I want you to understand is this is not a minor security threat, this is the number one priority of Chinese intelligence, this is what all of their agencies and all of their government are geared towards doing,” Rubio said, referring to Chinese digital and human intelligence theft of American secrets....

Trump put the heat to China for a lot of very good reasons.  It's almost unbelievable that Ron Johnson (and 40+ other Republicans) would vote to help China AND harm the US.

Isn't it?

I wish I could say I'm surprised, but I'm not. The swamp captures most in the end.
