Sen. Josh Hawley has one message to Congress about any future relief packages, they need to focus on getting Americans back to work. 

The Republican senator from Missouri told Fox & Friends that Congress needs to be “laser-focused” on jobs when considering any future rescue packages.

“Here’s what we need to focus on going forward: Jobs. We’ve got 27 million people unemployed,” Hawley said on Friday. “Government shut down the economy in order to deal with this health crisis. We need to get that economy opened back up and to do that we’ve got to get people back to work.”

Democrat lawmakers are already pushing for another stimulus bill after Congress passed a nearly $500 billion rescue bill on Thursday. 

Hawley said he thinks another relief package will happen, but warned it should avoid including funding for any of the Democrats’ “wish list” projects. 

“My message to my colleagues is jobs, jobs, jobs. Any future rescue package has got to focus on getting people rehired, supporting the payrolls of business so that workers can get their jobs back, have their wages covered and get back to work,” he said.
