REMINDER: GOP Senate Contenders Attacked Emergency Unemployment Relief While Crisis Grew

August 4, 2020

Georgia Republicans repeatedly attacked expanded unemployment insurance for weeks without trying to find solution to provide aid

ATLANTA — After GOP infighting let expanded unemployment relief expire last week, Senate Republicans are rushing to point fingers over their failure to pass even the most basic aid package.

Here’s the reality: Instead of trying to find a way to extend expanded aid for unemployed workers, Georgia Republicans spent the past few weeks slamming expanded unemployment insurance while the economy had its “worst quarter on record.” 

When it comes to helping working Georgians who’ve lost their job due to the pandemic, the record is clear: Georgia Republicans have spent their time in Washington fighting against expanded jobless aid, rather than working to provide relief for Georgians in a crisis.
