GOP Rep Blasts Critics of Trump Budget, Calls For 'Respect For Taxpayers'
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) said President Trump's budget plan respects taxpayers by letting them keep more of their money.
The fiery Freedom Caucus member said work requirements respect taxpayers by helping families stuck in the welfare system get to a better position in life.
"Let's respect the taxpayer," he told Neil Cavuto.
"You can't deal with a $20 trillion debt ... with just cuts alone," Jordan added.
Jordan said we need to reach three percent in economic growth to make a dent in the federal debt.
Cavuto asked Jordan how he will deal with the media, who will attempt to paint the lawmaker as the "guy pushing Granny off a cliff."
"You tell the truth," Jordan responded.
He said that when his fellow Ohioans leave for work and see their neighbor sitting on a porch reading the paper, it sends the wrong message.
"The worker knows that the sitter can work, but won't work, and is getting their money."
