  1. Why don’t Americans have affordable healthcare, education and housing like they did in 1950s ?

  3. Conservatives in pursuit of long-cherished policy goals can no longer avoid the reality that the GOP is vandalizing the principles and integrity of our democracy.

    And that’s why, ladies and gentlemen, I don’t vote for republicans. Having a healthy sense of reality matters.

  5. Investigate Johnson ASAP! He’s treasonous!

  6. When a republican senator puts up that big a fuss about being a Russian tool, chances are, it’s because he is.

  7. Such nonsense. Trump did the same thing in 2016 when he signed an EO to form a commission on voter fraud. After eight months they disbanded.

  8. FACTS MATTER. That should be self-evident to anyone over toddler age. Denying the existence of a virus, or of an evidently-robust democratic electoral process, demonstrably does not end well.

  9. Ron Johnson so reminds me of Wisconsin’s earlier democracy destroying Senator, Joe McCarthy. I expect Johnson to come striding into the Senate tomorrow carrying an 1952 era briefcase stuffed full of his fraudulent claims.
    “Have you no shame, Senator Johnson? Have you no sense of decency?”

  10. brilliantly said, ty sen peters and dr peters. exactly. they do know better btw.

    “I don’t think the science knows, actually.” -t***p

    Say no more, not interested.

  12. He must have an awful bunch of constituents that have kept him in. I can’t fathom this kind of stupidity

    • I see Americans who voted for Trump thinking they were voting out both political parties, Trumps’
      biggest accomplishment being people thinking he’s not Republican. No leading Democrat wanted
      to run against George Bush after he became a war-time president by attacking Iraq. That’s how a
      governor like Bill Clinton became president, politicians being wrong about public opinion.

    • @Cindy Brewer: You must have too much Drano in your meth mix. You should come down a little before you publish here.

  13. The Republican Party needs to be wiped off the political map.

    That chairman Johnson have to be kick out for attempting coupe

    • I believe there is an article in the constitution that they can use to remove all 126 members who signed on to the Texas lawsuit. It is my sincere wish that every one of them who signed on to it is removed from their position unable to work in politics again.

    • I agree with you. These people have been corrupted, some by a foreign power. The fact that they supported a coup against the government of the United States should make them ineligible to serve. I don’t know what was going through what they are using for their thought process, the fact is they supported a coup. As such they become domestic terrorists. They all took an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States. They broke that oath by supporting a mentally deranged man, becoming domestic enemies. They need to be expelled from Congress and forbidden to ever serve again.

  16. Trump is afraid of losing his immunity. That’s why he won’t give up.

    • @Elizabeth Csicsery-Ronay The first word you write really shows who you are and just exactly that, poor you. Did you donate any $ to your dear leader today yet crackhead?

      Don’t just donate a few bucks, how about take out mortgage on your house and give it all…oh don’t forget to go lick your orange man child ground it’s walking on and wipes its mouth off because it’s been spewing garbages a lot lately.

    • @Cindy Brewer Awww….. sore loser ….. dream on….

    • @Susan Mann And it won’t just be Muslims dancing in New Jersey.

      Yes trump is running scared and pulling every trick out of his hat to avoid criminal charges against him, and all the republicans that support trump are slowly destroying any chance of a career that they had, matter of fact they are destroying they’re own party. Biden is going to have a very difficult presidency trying to straighten out all the damage trump has done over the last 4 years and he will be heavily criticized for it.

    • 100% true

    We the people of Wisconsin vote trump out. We will vote Ron Johnson out too

    • He can’t very well belong to any senate or alike in the world. Reminded me of the Kavanaugh hearing in the Senate. Both exposes their own real character 100%.

    • @GoGreen1977 do you think please has the strength to get people who believe a different worldview to change their minds?

    • @Silent Wisdom – West central Wisconsin here. I’m embarrassed we have Johnson attached to us like an ankle bracelet. It’s nauseating.

    • @A. Barker – Do NOT equate us with Kentucky. Biden DID win Wisconsin. Kentucky gave the country both McConnell AND Rand Paul. We can still save the country if GA does the right thing and votes out both Perdue and Android Barbie.

    • @phunkyCW Yeah Voss rules with an iron heart here, I hate it too. Slow revolution huh?

  18. Wish someone would ask what is Ron Johnson hiding or covering up this guy looks and sounds dirty as heck

    Ron Johnson has no shame. He should resign today. He needs to run away not run for office.

  20. I want to cast my vote for trump as one of the worst cult leaders in US history
