On CNN Tuesday night time, Ossoff added “President Trump is, as ever, erratic and all over. However on this level, tonight, he is proper. […] $600 is a joke. They need to ship $2,000 checks to the American individuals proper now as a result of individuals are hurting.” He continued “David Perdue, my opponent, who opposed even the primary spherical of $1,200 checks […] has obstructed direct aid for the final eight months, and now determined he needed to chop it right down to 600 bucks when individuals can barely feed their households by way of no fault of their very own.” Warnock tweeted “Billionaire @KLoeffler thinks $600 will cowl your lease, groceries, and hospital payments,” Tuesday night time in response to Trump.
So now Loeffler and Perdue are completely on the spot: keep on with Trump and name for the cash and thereby screw McConnell—who lastly acquiesced to doing the invoice within the first place precisely because the 2 “are getting hammered” on stimulus, or keep on with McConnell who has been shoveling tens of millions into their races by way of Tremendous PACs aligned with him. Which is a minimum of any of those Republicans deserves.
However it’s a nice opening for Ossoff and Warnock, one which they’ve been fast to leap on.
