Atlanta, Ga. — After the U.S. House today passed a bill to send direct $2,000 stimulus checks to American families, investigative journalist and Democratic U.S. Senate nominee Jon Ossoff called on his opponent, Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.), to support the legislation and help pass the measure in the U.S. Senate.
Today, Ossoff released the following statement:
“Many Georgia families are in dire straits, and after eight months of obstruction, a single $600 check is a joke. Vast sums have been given to Wall Street banks and large corporations while David Perdue personally profited from pandemic stock trades. The people need help. Perdue must reverse his opposition to $2,000 checks and join Democrats, President-Elect Biden, and President Trump in immediately supporting $2,000 relief checks for his constituents.”
