Johnson Blocking Vote On Innovation and Competition Act, Sides With China Over Wisconsinites — Again

In response to vulnerable Senator Ron Johnson leading the efforts to block a vote on the U.S. Innovation and Competition Act, showing yet again that his priority is helping himself and not Wisconsin businesses and workers, Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee spokesperson Amanda Sherman released the following statement:

“Once again Sen. Ron Johnson is playing political games and siding with China over the Wisconsinites he was elected to represent. Ron Johnson’s own self interests are more important to him than cracking down on the country’s unfair economic and cybersecurity practices or giving American manufacturing and workers the boost they need to thrive in the 21st century.” 

The U.S. Innovation and Competition Act is a “once-in-a-generation investment” that would help level the playing field for American companies and workers and protect America’s global leadership and national security in the 21st century.
