Kelly Loeffler on Budget & Economy

 

 


COVID: Brought $47 billion to help Georgia jobs, businesses

Loeffler: I've worked hard to deliver relief to Georgians during this pandemic, and I'm continuing to do that. What I'm working on is making sure that we can get the economy going again, that we can drive forward after this pandemic. And I've been working side-by-side for my colleagues to make sure that we get that done, and we have delivered results. $47 billion that I brought here to Georgia saved 1.5 million jobs at small businesses.

COVID: We need to reopen our economy

Every day our economy remains closed--even partially--we lose jobs, shutter businesses, and destroy entire communities. That's why we need to reopen our economy, get rid of disincentives that are keeping workers at home, and encourage new investment in our businesses and communities.

COVID: No bailout to "blue states" for socialist policies

Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats are trying to ram through a $3 trillion blue-state bailout--which would funnel millions into poorly-run Democrat states and liberal pet projects. The fact is that Americans in need should receive assistance, but they don't need an out-of-control government using coronavirus as an excuse to enact socialist policies. Instead, I'm going to continue to advocate strongly for a relief bill that is targeted to help only those who need it the most.

Cut regulations; encourage investment; lower taxes

We've got to fully open our economy, get employees back to work. We've got to make strong commitments to bringing manufacturing back to America. I introduced my Beat China Act to reduce costs and reduce our dependency on foreign countries for health care and related products. We need to keep cutting regulation, encouraging American investment, lowering taxes and allowing free markets to restore prosperity and opportunity for all.

Proud to champion President Trump's economic agenda

Thanks to bold conservative leadership on the state and federal level, our unemployment rate in Georgia--and throughout the country--is at historic lows. Our economy is growing and American families are finally seeing growth in their 401ks. As a businesswoman and political outsider, Kelly is working in Washington to advance pro-growth policies that keep our state and country moving in the right direction. She is proud to champion President Trump's economic agenda to Keep America Great!

Reduce the Democrats' reckless spending agenda

In the Senate, Kelly supports efforts to reduce the Democrats' reckless spending agenda and reign in the national debt. Now, more than ever, we need to be good stewards of tax dollars and ensure that the American people are getting a good return on their investment.

Support record economic growth, job creation under Trump

Loeffler said, "I have 25 years of business experience, so I'm very interested in making sure we're doing things to help the economy, whether it's supporting the record economic growth, job creation, lowering the cost of health care (and) increasing access," Loeffler said.

Voted YES on $900 billion COVID relief package.

Loeffler voted YEA Consolidated Appropriations Act (COVID Relief bill)

NPR summary of HR133:

Argument in opposition: Rep. Alex Mooney (R-WV-2) said after voting against H.R. 133: "Congress voted to spend another $2.3 trillion [$900 billion for COVID relief], which will grow our national debt to about $29 trillion. The federal government will again have to borrow money from nations like China. This massive debt is being passed on to our children and grandchildren. With multiple vaccines on the way thanks to President Trump and Operation Warp Speed, we do not need to pile on so much additional debt. Now is the time to safely reopen our schools and our economy. HR133 was another 5593-page bill put together behind closed doors and released moments prior to the vote."

Legislative outcome: Passed House 327-85-18, Roll #250, on Dec. 21. 2020; Passed Senate 92-6-2, Roll #289, on Dec. 21; signed by President Trump on Dec 27 [after asking for an increase from $600 to $2,000 per person, which was introduced as a separate vote].

Anti-stimulus spending, according to PVS survey.

Loeffler opposes the PVS survey question on stimulus spending

Project Vote Smart inferred whether candidates agree or disagree with the statement, 'Economy: Do you support federal spending as a means of promoting economic growth?' PVS self-description: "The Political Courage Test provides voters with positions on key issues. Historically, candidates have failed to complete our test due to the advice they receive from their advisors and out of fear of negative attack ads."
