Hank Johnson Guam/ Guam Tipping Over

During a House Armed Services Committee hearing on March 25, 2010 concerning the U.S. military installation on the island of Guam, Johnson said to Admiral Robert F. Willard, Commander of U.S. Pacific Command, “My fear is that the whole island will become so overly populated that it will tip over and capsize”, to which Admiral Willard replied, “We don’t anticipate that.” Johnson’s office later said that he was a tremendous deadpan and used a facetious metaphor to draw attention to the potential negative impact caused by the addition of 8,000 marines and dependents on an island of 180 000 people.

Hank Johnson Congressman

Now serving his seventh term in the U.S. House of Representatives from Georgia’s Fourth Congressional District – which encompasses parts of DeKalb, Gwinnett and Newton counties and all of Rockdale County – Congressman Hank Johnson has distinguished himself as a substantive, effective lawmaker and a leading national progressive voice.

Named one of the most effective Democrats in Congress by a University of Virginia and University of Vanderbilt study, Rep. Johnson has proven his ability to get things done.

In 2017 at the launch of the 115th Congress, Rep. Johnson landed a coveted seat on the Transportation & Infrastructure Committee (T&I).

Hank Johnson Gun bill

Johnson (D-GA) introduced the House version of the Gun Violence Prevention and Community Safety Act, which includes and builds upon Congressional Democrats’ strongest gun safety legislation in one bold, comprehensive bill that works to end the epidemic of gun violence in America. U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) introduced the Senate version of the bill.

“This big, bold proposal—which combines and builds upon a number of common-sense measures introduced by my colleagues in Congress—would treat the epidemic of gun violence in the United States like the public health crisis that it is, help protect our children, and make our communities safer,” said Senator Warren. “With approximately 100 Americans killed every day from gun violence, it’s long past time for Congress to stand up to the gun lobby and confront this deadly crisis head-on.”

Hank Johnson Ballons

The House voted 394 to 1* to keep alive the Federal Helium Program, which was designed in 1925 to counter Germany’s early advantage in the blimp warcraft trade. While some politicians, including former Presidents Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton, have decried the program as a symbol of Washington largesse, Rep. Hank Johnson on the House floor extolled its benefits, asking us to “imagine…a world without balloons.” He also asked us to consider that helium helps comedians get that “high-pitched voice that we all hold near and dear to our hearts.” But his real target was Republicans in Congress, who allowed the helium debate to take up so much time on the floor. “I’d like to float a simple idea: Stop wasting our time,” Johnson concluded. “Let’s get to the business that is meaningful for Americans.”

This is not the first viral speech for Johnson. In recent years he has also asked the American public to consider giant vs. midget cage matches and Guam becoming so “overpopulated that it will tip over and capsize.”

*Rep. Linda Sanchez (D-Calif.) was the only member to vote nay.
