Loeffler’s “Skinny” Relief Bill Is Too Little, Too Late for Georgians

September 10, 2020

Despite Loeffler’s claims of “working hard” during recess, latest GOP relief bill fails to deliver significant priorities for Georgia families 

ATLANTA — Today, after Senator Kelly Loeffler and her Republican colleagues took a month-long break without passing needed coronavirus relief, including expired emergency unemployment benefits, Loeffler voted to advance a partisan stunt bill that is too little too late for Georgia families.

Here’s what the GOP’s “skinny” relief bill does NOT provide Georgia families:

Even in the middle of an ongoing recession and global pandemic, Loeffler insisted she’s “not seeing a big need” to restore expired federal emergency unemployment relief and has ignored pleas from Georgia Republican leaders for needed aid for Georgia’s state and local governments. Instead, just like her opponent Congressman Doug Collins who’s already voted against relief efforts in the House, Loeffler is standing with her party bosses over Georgia families.

“After Senator Kelly Loeffler and her Republican colleagues skipped town for summer vacation last month without passing needed relief legislation, Republicans’ latest ‘skinny’ relief bill is far too little too late,” said Alex Floyd, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “Georgians struggling to pay the bills or keep a roof over their heads in this crisis need real relief, but instead Loeffler is pushing a partisan stunt rather than stand up for Georgia families.”
