Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) has launched a new website to bring public awareness to the many innocent Americans who are “Victims of Government” overreach, regulation, and intrusion. Victims of government will be featured in a series of videos that will help personalize and “put a human face” on the costs and impacts of unnecessary, ineffective, and excessive government regulations.
In the first video above (“Victims of Government: Steve’s Story”), the saga and struggles of Stephen Lathrop are featured — he has spent 23 years mired in bureaucratic red tape, been shuttled between agencies, and been the victim of government miscommunication and inefficiency. Senator Johnson has intervened on behalf of Steve Lathrop and sent this letter to the US Army Corps of Engineers. Senator Johnson is asking for victims of government regulation and overreach to share their stories here, and some of those stories will be featured in future videos.
Sen. Johnson appeared tonight on “The Kudlow Report” to discuss his new project.
