Senator Ron Johnson Has Raked in Over $750,000 in Fossil Fuel Cash
Since 2009, Ron Johnson, Senator of Wisconsin, has taken over $750,000 from the oil, gas, and energy industries. This period covers his tenure since he was first elected in 2010.
Oil companies are price gauging and making billions in profits this year. They are not using the record number of drilling permits granted to them by the Biden administration. Instead, they are intent on keeping the supply of oil low to keep the cost of gas high. Five companies, (BP, ExxonMobile, Chevron, London-based Shell, and France’s Total Energies) have earned over $55 billion in profits in this year’s second quarter earnings alone.
As a result of the grotesque greed of the oil companies and rubber stamps from Senator Ron Johnson, they are punishing the poorest and most vulnerable people, while they ignore climate change.
