RoJo: Stop The Spending (Unless It’s For Me)

Posted by Chris Liebenthal on August 28, 2010

One of the meme’s coming from RoJo’s campaign is that the government needs to cut spending. An example would be this tidbit from this press release:

“Senator Russ Feingold should heed the advice of the citizens of Wisconsin and stop the reckless spending in Washington,” Ron Johnson for Senate campaign spokeswoman Sara Sendek said. “Workers and businesses are struggling to get by while Senator Feingold continues to support higher taxes and increased spending policies that do nothing to create jobs or improve the economy.”

He’s also been going around telling the fairy tale of how he worked real hard and created his company from the dust and made it a big success all my himself.

But we know that he didn’t build it, but rather married into it.

Now more news is coming out which belies his make-believe stories. From WKOW.com, we learn that RoJo is the recipient of government help:

In the 1980s the company expanded through the help of a $2.5 million government bond issued by the city of Oshkosh – a bond that charged below-market interest rates.

Today Johnson rails against government subsidies, saying they go against the free-enterprise system.

The question is, can RoJo make it a full week before he makes some sort of blunder showing him to be just another hypocrite and/or just another pretender.
