As Brian Kemp signs the state budget, the Democratic Party of Georgia is releasing a new website highlighting Kemp’s hypocrisy given that the budget was fueled by federal support from President Biden and Democrats’ American Rescue Plan, which Kemp opposed. The website, KempDoesntCare.com, provides examples of important initiatives in Georgia which are funded by the American Rescue Plan, which Kemp called a “slap in the face for hardworking Georgians” and urged Georgia’s U.S. Senators to oppose.
“After calling Democrats’ American Rescue Plan a ‘slap in the face for hardworking Georgians,’ Brian Kemp is hypocritically trying to take credit because he thinks it will help his chances of re-election as he faces vicious attacks from Donald Trump and David Perdue. The American Rescue Plan delivered billions in federal funds directly to Georgians and is fueling the state budget. When it comes to criticizing and then trying to take credit for Democrats’ work, Kemp doesn’t care about his blatant hypocrisy as long as he thinks it’ll help his political career,” said Max Flugrath, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia.
Georgia’s budget is fueled by “massive federal COVID-19 relief funding” according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Democrats’ American Rescue Plan sent billions to Georgia, boosting state revenues and the state budget.
