Republican Congressman Steve Stivers argued that the third round of stimulus checks should only be distributed to Americans who take the COVID-19 vaccine.
Stivers, who also “condemned Trump for encouraging Capitol rioters,” suggested the roll-out method for the $1,400 checks the day after Joe Biden’s inauguration.
He’d “be willing to sign off on a stimulus check of $1,400 for people who take the vaccine,” he said during an interview with Yahoo! Finance.
“I hope the administration will look at that option because we actually buy something with our $1,400 — and that’s herd immunity,” Stivers added.
