Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson forced Senate clerks to read the rescue bill out loud to an empty chamber until the wee hours of the morning while he played with his phone. The clerks read for 10 hours and 43 minutes from 3:21 pm Thursday until 2:40 am Friday.
What exactly did Ron Johnson accomplish with this stunt, other than fatiguing hardworking Americans who do his grunt work?
Republican Sen. Ron Johnson is now the only senator left in the chamber after he forced Senate clerks to read aloud the $1.9 trillion Covid relief bill — and he’s not even listening. He’s mostly on his phone.— Hugo Lowell (@hugolowell) March 4, 2021
