Citing low unemployment and high business investment, Republican U.S. Senator Ron Johnson says Wisconsinites are seeing what they want from the economy. According to Senator Johnson, business investment increased on average around seven percent each quarter since President Donald Trump took office. He credits reducing regulatory burden by about $50 billion and changes to the tax code as two of the reasons for the growth. Senator Johnson says it shows that policy and attitude matters.
Getting his Right to Try law, which allowed terminally ill patients attempt new procedures, was one of Senator Johnson’s proudest moments as a member of the 115th Congress. Senator Johnson’s only regret from the past two years was not being able to help pass legislation addressing the debt and replacing Obama Care.
