New Ossoff Ad Blasts Sen. Perdue for Opposing $1,200 Checks and Fighting to Cut Unemployment Benefits

“Even at a moment like this, David Perdue is there for his donors, but not for us.”
 

Atlanta, Ga. — Today, investigative journalist and Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate Jon Ossoff released his latest ad, “Priority,” highlighting how Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.) “personally opposed” $1,200 stimulus checks for Georgians and led the fight to cut unemployment benefits, despite working to line his own pockets and serve his donors.

Millions of Georgians have filed for unemployment during the pandemic, including the ad’s narrator, who says,“We needed our Senator’s help, but for David Perdue, we weren’t the priority.”  

In the first few months of the pandemic, Perdue “fought against” $1,200 stimulus checks, later doubled down in his opposition to direct relief payments for Americans, and led the charge to cut unemployment benefits for Georgians, while attempting to profit off the pandemic with a series of shady stock trades

Perdue also voted to send billions of dollars to large corporations, yet has failed to pass much-needed additional economic relief for Georgia families and small businesses while letting unemployment benefits expire.

“When this pandemic hit, millions of Georgians like me had to file for unemployment. 

“We needed our Senator’s help, but for David Perdue, we weren’t the priority.

“Senator Perdue voted to give hundreds of billions to big corporations, even if they laid people off. 

“But he fought against the $1,200 stimulus check for workers and supported cutting our unemployment benefits.

“Even at a moment like this, David Perdue is there for his donors, but not for us.”
