Republican senator Ron Johnson previously blocked a bipartisan motion to pass a bill to provide $1,200 stimulus checks to Americans, citing concerns over the “deficit.” Sure, now that a Democrat is in the White House, suddenly Republicans are worried about our deficit, but the GOP didn’t care when Donald Trump gifted the wealthy with a tax break just after stepping into office. Unemployment is through the roof, children are going hungry, and food banks are being hammered as most of us are trying to stay home to flatten the coronavirus curve.
So, of course, Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan just had to out-asshole Johnson with a solution to direly needed stimulus checks: Get a job.
The best stimulus? A job.

Twitter users had something to say to that morally bankrupt, empathy lacking assclown.
How would you know? You haven’t held a job for almost 15 years.

Or a 4TRILLION dollar tax break for rich people. Kinda stunning how you pull a heist then let people starve and become homeless. Funny how you guys get mad about being called “Fuckers” then continue to BE fuckers. @Jim_Jordan you really are a fucker. https://t.co/FaX7le8d2W

After the previous administration’s botched response to the pandemic, Americans were left struggling, and Republicans such as Jordan enabled that trash-monster president every step of the way. Donald Trump threw us into an apocalyptic economy, and that rat-fucker is telling us to get a job.
