If you follow the news at all you know that the mainstream media is committed to keeping America in lock down as long as possible, and to inflict the maximum pain possible in order to help Democrat’s election prospects in November.
Democrats also want Congress to spend as much money as possible, and use this crisis to achieve as much of their progressive political agenda as they can.
During an interview with Fox News Ohio congressman and ranking member of the House Oversight Committee Jim Jordan said the best stimulus is for people to go back to work, not another relief package.
Jordan also said that it was time for Speaker Pelosi to call back Congress. If first responders can manage to get to work, why not Congress?
SMITH: Let’s bring an Ohio congressman and ranking member of the House Oversight Committee, Jim Jordan. Good to see you. So do you agree with that decision? What kind of all remember the image last week of you showing stimulus vote, with no mask. Do you think the threat was enough to keep members of Congress free from returning to Washington?
JORDAN: States are reopening, why wouldn’t Congress? Health care workers have never stopped.
We’ve been working every single day’s out crisis but somehow U.S. Congress can’t come back to work.
There’s task force meetings all over the country but the task force that is supposed to meet and deal with the big issues, let’s get back in session.
You are describing it, we can do it. I don’t know why you’re not back doing the work of the American people, it seems like that’s exactly where we should be but unfortunately Nancy Pelosi will not call us back.
SMITH: We will take that as you do not agree with that. This fourth round of stimulus, this is largely being debated now. Questions over whether or not there will be a bipartisan support for another reef package, where do you stand?
JORDAN: The best stimulus is to go back to work.
The best phase for is to go back to work and we are seeing states do that.
We’ve already spent $3 trillion and that was necessary because when that local governments and state governments to help business owners you can’t engage in your livelihood and you can’t run your business, you have to help small businesses and you have to help small business owners.
The best approach now is let’s simply go back to work. Our states are beginning to do that, let’s do that as quickly as possible.
That’s the best stimulus, that’s the best phase four, go back to work. I hope we can go back to work and get our economy up and running again.
SMITH: So as far as you stand today, the fourth round of stimulus is not needed, just reopen the government. That’s what you want to see?
JORDAN: That is by far the best approach. I was talking to business owners this morning and that’s what they want to see.
In fact remember, so many businesses or deemed essential, they never shut down.
So let’s let the rest of the economy open up, let’s follow the same processes, same protocol and seam procedures.
Let’s let them open up and run their business. That’s the best stimulus, is phase four.
What do you think? Do you agree with Rep. Jim Jordan on this?
