TL;DR: Brian Kemp Is A Hypocrite
February 22, 2022
In case it wasn’t already crystal clear that Georgia Governor Brian Kemp is a shameless hypocrite, he proved that once again today. Even though Brian Kemp openly criticized the American Rescue Plan last March and even asked Georgia’s senators to vote against it, he’s now taking credit for projects made possible by its funding.
Brian Kemp touted new funding his state received from President Biden and Democrats’ American Rescue Plan.
Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Greg Bluestein: “Georgia @GovKemp just announced $422M in water and sewer grants to local governments from federal COVID relief funds approved by congressional Democrats – and opposed by Republicans – last year. Significant funding will go to boost water resources in south Georgia. #gapol”
Associated Press: “Kemp awards $422M to aid Georgia water and sewer projects”
HOWEVER, Brian Kemp vehemently opposed the American Rescue Plan, and even urged Georgia Senators Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff to vote AGAINST it.
