If someone were to look up “idiotic” in a dictionary, I wouldn’t be surprised if one found a nice smiling photo of Senator Ron Johnson. Johnson, current Senator from the Dairy State, is really nothing more than an unhinged conspiracy theorist who hopefully will be voted out of his position in the midterms.

But alas, for now, Johnson is still part of our Senate. And true to form, Johnson is once again speaking out and making a fool of himself in the process. Johnson is indignant. His annoyance is aimed toward a very important issue — child care.

This is an issue where most Republicans are on the wrong side of history — as usual. It would seem that, while the GOP is deeply concerned about taking control of pregnant women’s bodies away from said women, there really isn’t much concern about what happens AFTER. After the woman gives birth.

And Johnson proves this with his ridiculous take on childcare. His solution to the costs of looking after A child?
“Ain’t my problem.”

Of course, he didn’t say that in so many words. However, Johnson DID say that people shouldn’t become parents if they can’t afford to look after the kid. “I’ve never really felt it was society’s responsibility to take care of other people’s children,” Ron opined.

How lovely! Can’t you just feel the warmth and empathy pouring off the man? Doesn’t he sound like a true Senator? “Technically, other peoples’ children are part of society. Everyone knows the proverb that “it takes a village to raise a child.”

How deeply profound of you, Ron. I would add that it takes many a Wisconsin village to vote out uncaring and selfish Senators like you, and hopefully, that little task will be accomplished at the ballot box in November.
