On What’s at Stake in Georgia:
“We are the last line of defense against this liberal socialist agenda that the Democrats will perpetrate. We heard Schumer say just last week, ‘If we take Georgia, we change America.’ We heard AOC say they have to have these two seats because they don’t want to negotiate. They want total control, and so what’s at stake is this: Schumer will change the rules in the Senate so they can do anything they want.”
On Democrat’s Dangerous Economic Agenda:
“Elizabeth Warren wants to be Secretary of Treasury. It’s already a given that Bernie Sanders would be chairman of the Budget Committee, Sherrod Brown would be chairman of the Banking Committee. These are people who really do not believe in our free market system…In the Senate, we can protect the gains and accomplishments of the last four years. President Trump gave us an agenda that created the best economic turnaround in U.S. history. 6.5 million Americans have pulled themselves out of poverty. That will all get undone if we lose both seats in Georgia.”
On the Green New Deal:
“[The Green New Deal would cost] $9 trillion per year…Hidden inside the Green New Deal is Medicare For All cost, the $30,000 a year stipend for people unable or unwilling to work, and free college education. All of these things have nothing to do with climate change, but they’re hiding it in there to make sure that we don’t get a chance to debate it. And so, only about 20% of the Green New Deal has anything to do with climate change.”
On Calls for Democrats to Move to Georgia, Vote, and Leave:
“It’s illegal, and it shows how desperate the Democrats are. They know they can’t win straight up – we proved that in our election in my seat. They know that to win in this runoff they’ve got to do something illegal, and we’re not going to let it happen. What they’re encouraging people to do is to use artificial addresses or move in temporarily. Our law says they have to be here permanently. It just shows they’re willing to do anything – lie, steal, cheat, to win this election.”
On Jon Ossoff’s Business Ties to the Chinese Communist Government:
“Jon Ossoff worked for a communist Chinese news agency that’s owned by the Communist Chinese government. He denied it twice, in public, and yet there’s an official document filed with the government that says he did work with them. That in combination with the fact he worked for Al Jazeera for over nine years tells us he’ll never hold China accountable or deal with foreign policy with a straight up perspective.”
