You won’t believe what he said.
According to Breitbart News, Sen. Ron Johnson attacked Mitch McConnell for not pushing $2000 stimulus checks stating that they need to be priority.
Johnson said, “Let me use a government employee, people that are making combined, a couple, $150,000 last year. They didn’t lose their job. They didn’t lose any income. If they’ve got a family of four, they’ll get an $8,000 check.”
He continued, “I don’t think a couple like that should get an $8,000 check. So, there’s ways we can target this. And it’s not going to be targeted in a day or two. We should have been talking about this. We should have been considering this. I’ve got proposals, for example, on PPP. But we need to do a better job of targeting this.”
Johnson later added that he will support the McConnell package, “Only if we target the $2,000 payments.” You can watch a clip of Johnson’s remarks here.
