MADISON —U.S. Senator Ron Johnson has introduced a bill that would pay essential federal employees during the partial government shutdown. He says it’s a matter of simple fairness and national security. 

Wisconsin’s senior senator tells MacIver News Service that the Democrats need to stop the hypocrisy and do what they promised to do before Donald Trump became president: Secure the U.S. border. 

Sen. Johnson is our guest on this edition of MacIver Newsmakers.
