Ron Johnson Says Poor Single Moms Should Take Jobs Watching Their Own Children

Wisconsin can do a whole lot better than this guy.

In a little over two months, Russ Feingold will drub this assclown, and Wisconsin will have one less national embarrassment to worry about.

Republican U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson is suggesting that poor single moms take jobs in the day care centers watching their children, a practice Wisconsin restricted seven years ago after massive fraud involving government subsidies.

Johnson’s solution for addressing poverty is the latest awkward comment from the freshman senator who compared voting in November to the decision by doomed 9/11 passengers on Flight 93 to storm the cockpit, criticized “The Lego Movie” as anti-business propaganda and appeared to suggest that a documentary could replace teachers.

Johnson made the remarks on day care centers in a La Crosse radio interview on Monday. He didn’t clarify his comments, putting his handlers in the position of scrambling to understand, and then explain, what their boss meant.
