Wisconsin Republicans Comment on Chemical Attack in Syria

Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) spoke with CBS 58's David Ade about Tuesday's chemical attack on Syrian civilians. 

The White House blames Syrian President Bashar al-Assad for the attack.

Johnson said, \"It shows the folly of arms control agreements or assurances from dictators like Assad or quite honestly even Russia in terms of destroying all the chemical weapons in Syria. That obviously was true, I never believed it to begin with.\"

House Speaker Paul Ryan also commented on the attack during a WisPolitics luncheon held in Washington D.C.

Ryan said, \"There is no justification for a genocidal dictator gassing his own people. The responsibility rests with the man who did that, and no one else.\"
