This happens rarely…
During an airing of “CNN Tonight,” Georgia Democratic Senator candidate Jon Ossoff decided to announce that he sides with President Trump in raising the amount from the stimulus checks.
Ossoff said, “I don’t know where President Trump has been for the last eight months while his allies in the U.S. Senate have been blocking this relief. President Trump is as ever erratic and all over the place. But on this point, tonight, he’s right. $600 is a joke.”
“They should send $2,000 checks to the American people right now. Because people are hurting. And David Perdue, my opponent, who opposed even the first round of $1,200 checks — imagine that, imagine a sitting U.S. senator, who was profiting from the pandemic buying medical and vaccine stocks, opposed even the first single round of $1,200 checks, has obstructed direct relief for the last eight months, and now decided he wanted to cut it down to $600 when people can barely feed their families through no fault of their own. Congress should pass $2,000 checks. They should have done it two months ago.”
This has been one of the only times Democrats have praised and sided with President Trump and if the bill goes through, many Americans will benefit from their bipartisanship.
