Milwaukee, WI — As Wisconsinites tune into the Green Bay Packers’ NFL season opener Sunday, they will see MoveOn Political Action’s new TV ad criticizing Sen. Ron Johnson for being an out-of-touch MAGA millionaire who is incapable of relating to the real needs of working-class Americans. 

“Before the Packers’ season even opened, Ron Johnson had already sacked his own constituents by voting against the Inflation Reduction Act,” said MoveOn Political Action Executive Director Rahna Epting. “People in Wisconsin deserve cheaper prescription drugs and clean-energy jobs. They don’t need a MAGA millionaire who only looks out for his own net worth and the interests of his ultra-wealthy donors.” 

The :30 ad highlights Johnson’s propensity to protect the interests of the ultra-wealthy and large corporations by voting against making them pay their fair share of taxes to fund lowering drug prices and capping insulin costs and jobs in the clean energy field by “no” on the Inflation Reduction Act.  

Johnson’s opposition to the Inflation Reduction Act runs counter to the support of his constituents. New polling finds the Inflation Reduction Act enjoys a +36-point margin of support among Badger State voters. This includes nearly all Democrats (91%), over two-thirds of Independents (68%), and 41% of Republicans in Wisconsin who back the bill.

The 30-second ad will air Sunday during FOX’s broadcast of the game. 



MoveOn is a people-powered force for progress. MoveOn mobilizes the left to elect Democrats and enact progressive change. We are the homebase for millions of members who refuse to accept the status quo and are moved to take action. For more than a generation, MoveOn has been a bulwark against the radical right, channeling our voices to end wars, protect democracy, and advance justice for all.
