image for Republicans Promise Endless Stupid Bullshit if They Retake Senate

Republicans have plans for after the midterm elections if they retake the Senate: endless bullshit investigations into the Biden administration.

In the middle of the pandemic, Johnson, a proud anti-vaxxer, said he would not get vaccinated.

Last year, he told a conservative radio host that there is “no reason to be pushing vaccines on people.”

Why do we assume that the body’s natural immune system isn’t the marvel that it really is?”

Of course, the reason is because multiple peer-reviewed scientific studies have found that vaccine-induced immunity is superior to immunity acquired by contracting Covid-19.

Other possible Republican targets for investigation include the border, the U.S. military’s withdrawal from Afghanistan, and Hunter Biden.

Johnson and many of his fellow Republicans, however, did not show the same level of concern for transparency and oversight when the Trump administration was stonewalling congressional subpoenas left and right. »
