People in Wisconsin work hard and expect others to do the same.

Imagine having a job and telling your employer that for the next eight months, you refuse to do your job.

Senator Johnson is doing exactly that! Ron Johnson was hired by us, the “employers” of Wisconsin, who pay his generous salary and benefits to work for us. He took an oath to uphold the Constitution. The Senate has a constitutional duty to hold hearings and to “advise” and “consent” after the President has nominated a qualified person to fill a U.S. Supreme Court vacancy.

Fifty four percent (54%) of Wisconsinites (WPR) want the Senate to hold hearings this year on President Obama’s nominee, U.S. Appeals Court Judge Merrick Garland, to the U.S. Supreme Court. Sixty-two percent (62%) of Wisconsinites (Public Policy Poll) want the Senate to hold hearings to fill the vacant seat. National polls indicate a strong majority of American voters want the Senate to hold hearings this year for Judge Merrick Garland.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has joined other newspapers across the country stating: Ron Johnson and his fellow Republicans need to do their job and give the nominee, Judge Merrick Garland, a hearing.

Senator Johnson is clearly going against the will of the people by refusing to do his job. It is our duty as Ron Johnson’s “employers” to tell him: Do your job! Contact him at:
