Rep. Jim Banks has released a new bill that would strip convicted rioters of unemployment benefits as well as make them pay for the policing of riots.
“Due to enhanced federal benefits, taxpayers are giving wages to jobless rioters that are destroying our communities,” Jim Banks said. “We need to cut them off from their funding and make them feel the full financial consequences of their actions.”
Banks wrote on Twitter “Threatening the life of a US Senator is a felony.”
“Under my bill, the Support Peaceful Protest Act, Sen. Paul’s attackers would be forced to cover the cost of policing the protests & lose access to federal benefits. Enough already!” He added.
Tweeting a link to Breitbart’s coverage of his bill, Banks also wrote that American taxpayers are paying for the rioters from thier hard earned money.
“It’s not just George Soros or any other big leftwing group paying these rioters to burn down our cities and destroy America. You are,” posted Banks.
“My bill would stop it,” he added.
