Sen. Ron Johnson: Today’s “Joseph Goebbels Truth Teller” Award Winner


Congratulations to….


Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI)

Today’s “Joseph Goebbels Truth Teller” Award Winner



This isn’t the first Award presented to Ronnie. In the past, he has been the recipient of one Screwball Award which can be viewed by going to the Screwball Award category.


FYI: Joseph Goebbels was the quintessential truth-teller during his tenure as the chief purveyor of propaganda for the Third Reich prior to and during World War II.


During a recent (10/29/14) appearance on the NewsMax TV comedy show, Ronnie whined about the alleged “coercive” and “very destructive” consequences of Obamacare on the residents of Wisconsin.


In response to a question about premium increases, Ronnie related his own experiences with the viewers by saying:


  • “I’m driving around Wisconsin, I’m talking to business owners and I’m talking to health care providers and insurance agents as well and they’re seeing that same kind of range [premium increases for 2015], anywhere from 16 to 60 percent.”
  • “Kind of with an average of around 30 percent here just anecdotally in Wisconsin.”

Ronnie’s assertions are total fabrications. The actual rates as submitted to the Wisconsin Office of the Commissioner of Insurance (OCI) in September show that average premiums for health care plans offered though the law’s federal exchange will actually increase by an average of just 3 percent in 2015. Two of the reporting insurance companies registered decreases in premiums for 2015.


Clearly Ronnie the Fabricator intentionally misled the viewers and voters by increasing the percentage of premium increases from 3 percent to 30 percent. To be fair to Paulie the Fabricator he did get the first digit (3) right.


It is clear that Ronnie will tell any lie in his ongoing efforts to dupe the voters into reelecting him to the U.S. Congress.


Congrats Ronnie; keep up the good work! We should let everyone know of your amazing record as one of Americas Least Appreciated “Truth-Tellers”; you are far too humble.
