Perdue Once Again Fails to Stand Up for Georgia, Instead Hides Out at a Fundraiser

November 8, 2019

Saddled with an unpopular record including trying to gut protections for pre-existing conditions and rip apart the health care law, Perdue forced to hide out from voters at high-dollar luncheon

Atlanta — After voting to gut protections for pre-existing conditions, supporting a giant corporate tax giveaway for the special interests and the wealthiest Americans, and standing by a reckless trade war devastating rural Georgians, Senator David Perdue is set to spend today once again ignoring his constituents to attend a high-dollar fundraiser in Buckhead. 

Perdue is no stranger to ignoring the best interests of Georgians to put himself and his special interest allies in Washington first. Over the course of just one term, he’s already managed to turn his back on Georgia again and again on issues from health care to jobs to the trade war. His disastrous record for Georgians includes:

Rather than standing up for Georgia and working to fix problems in communities across the state, Perdue continues to put his party leaders and special interest backers ahead of Georgians and their basic needs. He’ll keep voting to strip health care from millions and weaken protections for pre-existing conditions, but will never hesitate to give a tax break to an outsourcing company or another wealthy donor.

Despite hosting 0 town halls since his election and dodging questions from his constituents, Perdue can always find time to raise money off his disastrous record behind closed doors.

“With a record that includes voting to gut protections for pre-existing conditions and rip health care away from millions of Americans, it makes sense that Senator Perdue would rather raise money from his special interest allies and well-heeled donors than listen to his constituents in Georgia,” said Alex Floyd, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “Senator Perdue may not hold town halls, but as long as you have thousands of dollars to give and aren’t worried about the rising cost of health care or the escalating trade war, he’ll be happy to talk behind closed doors about his special interest agenda.”
