'Stop the madness,' says RoJo; But his anti-regulatory bill IS the madness

Senator Ron Johnson a House member loony enough to join him as a co-sponsor of his bill to stop ALL new government regulations until the national unemployment rate goes down to 7.7 per cent, or the world ends, whichever comes first.

Great news, Wisconsin!  RoJo's not our only certified nut case.  The House member who signed on is Reid Ribble, a freshman Republican from Wisconsin,

Never mind that no one has credibly made an argument that regulations are what's costing us jobs, or that removing regulations would create them.  (Note the word credibly; RoJo might make that argument, but it has no basis in fact."

Johnson said Thursday that the growth of regulation has been a “bipartisan problem” pre-dating the Obama administration but he and GOP colleagues who joined him Thursday assailed the president’s record on regulation.   

“What this bill does is say stop the madness,” said Johnson.

Senator, you ARE the madness.
