DSCC Statement on Ron Johnson’s Tax Scandal

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: Multimillionaire U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson paid a mere $2,105 in state income taxes in 2017, despite making big bucks

In response to reporting that vulnerable incumbent Senator Ron Johnson only paid $2,105 in state income taxes in 2017 despite potentially making millions, Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee spokesperson Amanda Sherman Baity issued the following statement:

“From rigging the tax system to benefit himself and his special interest friends to attempting to block a middle class tax cut, Johnson has a long record of using his public office to make himself richer and advance his own self-serving agenda. Wisconsinites deserve an explanation from this multi-millionaire about why he paid less state income taxes in 2017 than the average hard-working Wisconsin family. Johnson’s self-serving politics represents exactly what Wisconsinites hate about Washington, and if he runs in 2022 voters will hold him accountable.” 

This isn’t the first time that Johnson faced criticism for rigging the tax system––the multi-millionaire changed language in the GOP’s 2017 tax scam bill to benefit himself and his big-money donors and special interest friends
