Last week, as Brian Kemp signed the state budget, the Democratic Party of Georgia launched KempDoesntCare.com, a new website highlighting Kemp’s hypocrisy on President Biden and Democrats’ American Rescue Plan. Kemp urged Georgia’s U.S. Senators to oppose the American Rescue Plan and called it a “slap in the face,” but he’s been quick to try and take credit for the benefits it delivered to Georgians – including its boost to the state budget and $415 million just announced today in federal relief dollars that will go towards addressing economic impacts of COVID-19.
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.
