Ron Johnson, the Laziest Senator

For a guy who's been bitching about how little gets done in the senate lately, this is embarressing:
Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), who defeated Sen. Russ Feingold (D-Wis.) last fall, has not brought any bills, amendments or resolutions forward for consideration. 


Meanwhile, Johnson, another Tea Party favorite, said, “I have spent a fair amount of time working with House members, in particular on the Cut, Cap, and Balance legislation that I hope will pass the House. It will actually cut spending, cap it over a period of years to lead to a balanced budget and lift the debt ceiling — contingent on us passing a constitutional amendment to limit spending and balance the budget.”
So he's working on legislation that doesn't mean shit unless a constitutional amendment passes first. Perhaps it would be wise to not put the cart before the horse and work on the constitutional amendment first.
