Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, August 16, 2021

[Wisconsin Republican Sen. Ron] Johnson, a millionaire many times over, is not averse to enriching himself. But his most ambitious legislative endeavors have often involved the augmenting of the bank accounts of his political benefactors. ... Confidential tax records, obtained by ProPublica "reveal that Johnson's last-minute maneuver benefited two families more than almost any others in the country--both are worth billions and both are among the senator's biggest donors. Dick and Liz Uihlein of packaging giant Uline, along with roofing magnate Diane Hendricks, together had contributed around $20 million to groups backing Johnson's 2016 reelection campaign. The expanded tax break that Johnson muscled through netted them $215 million in deductions in 2018 alone, drastically reducing the income they owed taxes on.

Every one of these stinking MF's deserves to be investigated, tried and thrown in jail if guilty. It has always been corrupt but with people who are trying to serve the country at the same time, until about 30 years ago, when us Boomers got into power. Buncha greedy pigs now only serving themselves, like Johnson.

This is what politicians do. Only an idiot who has been living under a rock his entire life would see a news story here.

Make comapaign financing public. Oh, wait. That would mean the benefactors would have to make those laws.
