Senator David Perdue On Safely Reopening Schools & What’s At Stake This November
ATLANTA, GA – U.S. Senator David Perdue joined the Hugh Hewitt Show to discuss his plan to help schools reopen safely when their communities are ready, rebuilding the military, and exposing the Democrats’ socialist agenda.
LISTEN to David’s interview with Hugh Hewitt here.
On Helping Schools Reopen Safely:
“I believe these decisions ought to be made at the local level. My mom and dad were school teachers. I won’t second guess the local administrators who are deciding to do virtual learning. I’ve got a bill, the SCHOOL Act, that would help with PPE to protect teachers and students, provide best practices, get more data, and connect the health community with the education community. This is a critical time.”
On The Importance Of Rebuilding Our Military:
“Georgia is very important to our military and our national defense. The last two Democratic presidents reduced spending in the military by 25%. We saw what Obama and Biden did in eight years. They decimated our readiness. In 2017, only 3 of our Army Brigade Combat Teams could go to fight that night. We’re trying to rebuild our military, but it’s going to take time because of the hole that Bill Clinton and Barack Obama and Joe Biden gave us.”
On Democrats’ Expensive Socialist Policies:
“Democrats can’t raise taxes high enough to pay for what they’re talking about doing. The Green New Deal is not just a pipe dream or a piece of paper – they actually want to implement it. And here’s the problem – once they implement things like that, it’s hard for us to ever come back and get them taken out. Look at the CFPB. The Green New deal is $9 trillion a year. That’s equal to the entire adjusted gross income of everybody who works in America.”
