“Can you spare some change for a millionaire?”

Republican U.S. Senator-elect Ron Johnson, who said during his campaign that he’d be willing to spend all of his multi-million dollar fortune to beat Sen. Feingold, has apparently decided he’d rather let the masses pay down his campaign debt, as opposed to paying his own bills like any responsible businessman would do. On December 9, Johnson will be holding a “Debt Retirement Lunch” with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky. The luncheon will take place at the National Republican Senatorial Committee headquarters, and the donation levels for the luncheon are: Host: $5,000; Sponsor: $2,500 PAC; and Attend: $1,000 PAC/$500 Personal.

Asking others to pay your bills….sounds like a fiscally conservative thing to do!

  1. I’m a little confused. So are you saying you’re against campaign fund raising period now Zach? Or is it just Johnson?

    I’ve never really given a darn how much rich fools are willing to pay for meal. Though I think it’s pretty stupid, as long as it’s 100% voluntary, I don’t see why anyone would be upset about it. It’s OK for politicians to take our money by threat of imprisonment and absolutely waste it, but you have a problem with them asking for it voluntarily?

    1. No, what I’ms saying is that I’m against a multi-millionaire saying he’d be willing to spend all of his fortune to win an election, only to turn around and beg for others to retire the campaign debt he should be willing to retire himself, given his statements.

      If Ron Johnson really meant what he said, he should put his money where his mouth is and retire his debt with his own fortune, rather than asking others to do it for him.
