How Loeffler Spent Her Summer Vacation

September 4, 2020

After failing to pass a relief package, Loeffler focused on campaigning while Georgians were left without needed coronavirus relief

ATLANTA — As Senator Kelly Loeffler gets ready to head back from her summer break after previously leaving town without passing needed coronavirus relief, here’s a list of all the things she’s done on her summer vacation to get relief for Georgians:

That’s right. Despite Loeffler claiming that she’s “been working hard throughout this break in August,” she hasn’t done anything since leaving town to pass critical relief for hundreds of thousands of out-of-work Georgians. Instead, Loeffler has said she’s “not seeing a big need to extend the federal unemployment insurance” in a recession while praising President Donald Trump’s executive order stunt that reduced federal expanded unemployment benefits and could leave out-of-work Georgians with “only a three-week boost” — after taking “at least three or four weeks” to set up in Georgia.

Meanwhile, her opponent, Congressman Doug Collins, previously voted against relief efforts in the House and wants to “cut back” on expanded unemployment relief “or do away with it altogether” as he also praises Trump’s reckless order on unemployment aid.

“As Georgia families struggled to pay the bills or keep a roof over their heads, Senator Kelly Loeffler and Congressman Doug Collins took a nice break from work this summer to focus on their campaigns,” said Alex Floyd, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “Clearly, the only thing Loeffler and Collins are ‘working hard’ at is maintaining their bitter intraparty feud while Georgians are forced to wait for needed relief.”
