5 Questions Every Georgia Republican Must Answer As They Continue to Obstruct Biden’s Popular Agenda

October 14, 2021

While Democrats are hard at work in negotiations to get to the finish line on passing the Build Back Better agenda and the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal, Georgia Republicans have spent nearly nine months proving time and again that they have no interest in helping the Georgians they were elected to serve. 

Georgia GOP Reps. Buddy Carter, Drew Ferguson, Austin Scott, Andrew Clyde, Jody Hice, Barry Loudermilk, Rick Allen, and Marjorie Taylor Greene have made it abundantly clear that obstructing critical relief for political gain will trump every opportunity to help working Georgians get back on their feet.

As Democrats work to deliver for Georgia families, here are five questions every Georgia Congressional Republican must answer: 

  1. Why do Georgia Republicans protect tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans and big corporations, which added billions to the national debt, after refusing to support tax cuts for middle-class families? 
  1. Data has shown that the expanded child tax credit has helped cut the child poverty rate and is overwhelmingly popular among voters. So what do Republicans have to say for their opposition to providing relief for millions of hard working parents?
  1. Why don’t Georgia Republicans want to lower health care costs for the American people? Because of the American Rescue Plan, Georgians can save, on average, 40% off of their monthly premiums. Yet Republicans in Congress unanimously voted against the American Rescue Plan and are still opposing President Biden’s Build Back Better agenda. 
  1. Are Georgia Republicans prepared to bring down the Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill in the hopes it will hurt Democrats and President Biden politically, even though there have been decades of bipartisan agreement that our nation needs to make critical new investments in infrastructure? The Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill was supported by 19 Republicans in the Senate, including Mitch McConnell. 
  1. Why did Georgia Republicans vote against a critical pandemic relief bill which included checks in the bank for American families, aid to small businesses, and resources to safely reopen schools?
