A big week for Wisconsin: Sen. Ron Johnson, the freshman Republican from Oshkosh, delivers the party’s weekly address, days after Rep. Paul Ryan (R., Wis.) gave the GOP rebuttal to President Obama’s State of the Union address.
“In his response to the State of the Union address, my fellow Wisconsinite Paul Ryan — a leader in tackling our spending problem — did a great job of expressing our willingness to work with the president, and pointing out how critical it is for us to act now, before it’s too late,” Johnson says. “The issues of spending, deficits, and the debt will be central in the upcoming debate over the 2011 spending bill and the need to raise the debt ceiling. This will be the moment of truth when talk and rhetoric must be turned into action and tangible results. Real reductions must be part of the solution.”
