Millions of Georgians could lose pay, assistance due to GOP political games
With Senate Republicans threatening to turn the long-standing bipartisan tradition of raising the debt ceiling to keep America’s government operating into a facetious political game, the GOP is putting millions of Georgians’ livelihoods at risk. If Republicans continue their partisan grandstand, the GOP will cost America’s economy six million jobs, wipe out $15 trillion in wealth, and send the unemployment rate surging to roughly nine percent from around five percent.
In Georgia, millions of Social Security recipients, military members, veterans, federal employees, and families receiving food assistance will bear the consequences of Republicans’ government shutdown. While Georgia Senators Reverend Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff are fighting to end the partisan bickering and deliver historic investments in infrastructure, child care, and the economy, the Senate GOP is putting politics over essential benefits Georgians need to survive.
