The Democratic Party of Georgia is celebrating #ThrowbackThursday by reminding Georgians of some of Senator Kelly Loeffler’s most out-of-touch moments
ATLANTA — While unelected “political mega-donor” Senator Kelly Loeffler attacked unemployment aid as “government dependency” and claimed she was “not seeing a big need” to extend now-expired federal unemployment benefits in the middle of a recession, reporting showed that she and her family have taken “millions in subsidies” — including from federal CARES Act funds.
Loeffler’s family has taken “more than $3.2 million in federal benefits since 1995” through farm subsidies, including over $770,000 since 2018. This also includes payments from the CARES Act as well as relief from President Donald Trump’s reckless trade war that threatened Georgia farmers. Yet even as her family receives millions in federal benefits, Loeffler and her Senate Republican colleagues have still failed to pass needed coronavirus relief for millions of Americans.
