Congressman Jim Jordan is calling out the Democrats. Today, he took to his Twitter account and posted a laundry list of things he claims they want. They want to cash in on the crisis and don’t mind taking away more of our rights! Never mind that small businesses need loans right now!
Yesterday, the Senate adjourned without reaching a deal with the Democrats.
Republicans were trying to get $250 billion dollars for the small-business-program which has run out of money.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell took to the floor and said, Via The Hill,
“This morning, the program ran out of money and shut down, just as we’d warned. But even now, Senate Democrats are still blocking funding. Every Senate Republican was ready to act today, but Democrats would not let us reopen the program,” McConnell said on the floor, referring to the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP).
“It is surreal to see Democratic leaders treat support for workers and small businesses as something they need to be goaded into supporting. This should be above politics,” McConnell added. “I hope our colleagues come around soon.”
Representative Jim Jordan was spot on when he tweeted,
“Let’s recap. Democrats want to: Pay states to release criminals -Free detained illegal aliens -Close churches -Make abortion clinics essential -Stop gun sales. Republicans want to: -Help small businesses w/ the #PaycheckProtectionProgram -Get America back to work”
The Congressman’s tweet received several comments. Here are a couple. Keep Looking Up tweeted,
“Time to clean out Congress. Vote Republican!!!”
Break Glass In Case Of War tweeted,
“Americans will remember in November that Democrats held “our tax dollars” hostage until they received concessions in the form of partisan agenda items. While our friends, families, and neighbors struggled, suffered and died.”
