Kemp Called Democrats’ ARP a “Slap in the Face to Hardworking Georgians” But Continues to Take Credit for Its Funds
With less than thirty days until Election Day, Gov. Brian Kemp is concluding a “yearlong spending spree,” allocating nearly all of the $4.8 billion in relief funding that congressional Democrats delivered for Georgia through the American Rescue Plan. A new report from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reveals that the funds didn’t “have to be committed until the end of 2024, or spent until 2026.”
Despite Kemp’s harsh criticisms of Democrats’ American Rescue Plan, the package has funded crucial projects across Georgia — which Kemp has been bragging about on the campaign trail as he tries to take credit and boost his re-election bid.
Earlier this year, Georgia Democrats released a new website to hold Kemp accountable on his hypocrisy by reminding voters of his opposition to the American Rescue Plan and his efforts to try and take credit for all it delivered to Georgia: KempDoesntCare.com.
