Oh how big of Johnson he doesn't take his government congressional health care, he takes his government Air Force healthcare. Probably better coverage with the Air Force and probably is getting a disability check. He has made 40 meaningless votes on Obamacare. The Republican plan "if you get sick die quickly".

V-man, there you go again. Since you are fully of information, perhaps you would be kind enough to throw out how many of the local people are working those jobs. Last I checked many employees were living in the hotels around the area (which increased those cost and decreased availabilty). In response to your "entitlements", you do need some government in your life. You say Obama "closed" plants, but does Johnson represent the area? Apparently he does not have the clout to influence his other do nothing congress to write legislation that works for the environment. Aren't residents complaining of low water pressure, natural gas in the drinking water, etc.? Remember, congress legislates (when they work). If the government shuts down, you will miss that check. You will blame Obama once again without even blinking know good and well its a do nothing congress.

I applaud Johnson's integrity concerning SPECIAL PRIVILEGES congress is trying to deal for themselves. As far as voting 40 times to repeal ACA (not Obamacare), WHAT IDEA has this politician proposed in getting people insured. NONE....Most of the people in this POLITICIAN'S district is on Social Security, MEDICARE, MEDICAID (ALL FUNDED BY THE U.S. GOVERNMENT). Why do people have this "I got mine, you get yours" mentality when it comes to health care. I am tired of republicans talking jobs creation. Whoever believes that are clueless and only sit in front of fox to get talking points. Johnson is BS-ing his district like the rest of the politicians. SOMEONE, ANYONE, PLEASE give me a number of jobs created in his district. I guess 40 votes to take away coverage for people is more important than fighting for jobs in his area.
