"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."
