Ron Johnson Criticizes Barnes For Supporting Joe Biden’s Inflation Policy


sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) on Monday rebuked radical opponent Mandela Barnes for supporting President Joe Biden’s policies that have fueled inflation and put American workers in trouble.

Although the mainstream media claimed on Monday that inflation fell in August, households in Wisconsin were not given relief in the supermarket aisles. The median consumer price index (CPI) revealed Monday that the national price of food at home is up 0.7 percent compared to the previous month. In the past 12 months, food prices have risen by 13.5 percent.

Wisconsin households experienced $673 in higher monthly expenses in August compared to January 2021.

“Americans struggle to make ends meet, but the disastrous Democrat policies that support Mandela Barnes would make life worse,” he said. Johnson spokesman Ben Voelkel told reporters that. “Barnes is dangerous to Wisconsin, and he has proven he is willing to sacrifice the wallets of working-class Americans and drive our nation’s budget deficits to fundamentally transform our nation.”
Massive inflation, the highest the nation has seen in 39 years, has been fueled by Biden’s policies supporting the radical Barnes:

  • Barnes praised the so-called “Inflation Reduction Act,” which raises taxes by more than $300 billion and is expected to increase inflation in the near term.
  • Barnes supported the $1.9 US bailout, which fueled inflation and increased the federal deficit by $1.84 trillion.
  • Barnes said“we need to go big” over Biden’s $2.3 trillion infrastructure plan, which also fueled inflation.

National polls show that 56 percent of Americans say Biden’s record inflation has put them in trouble, up from 49 percent in January and 45 percent in November. Twenty-four percent of respondents have spent less, buy less or only buy essential items.

Barnes’ stance on federal spending during 40 years of high inflation isn’t the only radical policy he supports. He believes that reducing the number of prisons is ‘sexy’. He has advocated allowing criminals to retain the right to vote and supported defunding “exaggerated” police services, while spending a lot of money on security for himself during a crime wave.

Barnes has argued for abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), to allow driving licenses for illegal immigrants and providing state tuition for illegal immigrants. He favors a fully government-run health care system, eliminating the Senate filibuster, packing up the Supreme Court, and the adoption of the Green New Deal. Barnes also derided small business owners as “selfish” for wanting to serve customers during the pandemic.

The polls say Johnson-Barnes’ Senate race is a bull’s eye. The general election will be held on November 8.
