A Top Republican Senator Is Pushing One of the Biggest Jobs Programs in History

Following calls by economists to temporarily “pause” the melting down economy, Sen. Josh Hawley (R., Mo.) in recent weeks debuted a plan to restore millions of jobs on the government dime and is now pushing for his proposal to guide coronavirus relief going forward…

Fearing the effects of the economy contracting by up to a third, Congress has appropriated millions of dollars in aid to the newly out of work.

And it’s to try to protect every job in this country for the duration of this crisis.”

Hawley has talked about this on Twitter:

The Trump economic team should hear Hawley out on this.
