Senator David Perdue Talks Outsider Campaign, Court Packing On WDUN Radio
During a bus stop in Gainesville, U.S. Senator David Perdue joined Morning Talk with Martha Zoller on WDUN Radio to discuss his re-election campaign and the Democrats’ radical, socialist agenda.
Listen to the full interview here.
On Being The Original Outsider:
“We ran an outsider campaign in 2014. I’m an incumbent now, but I’m still the outsider in the belly of the beast and continue to try to change the direction of the country.
“The representative democracy in America is healthy. It’s our biggest blessing outside of God’s favor. I believe the people of Georgia are smart enough that they’ll make the right decision about both the presidential race and all these statewide races, including mine.”
On Biden’s Refusal To Answer Basic Questions:
“Biden would not even say what his plans are. He said, ‘Elect me and I’ll show you what my plans are.’ Well that’s not good enough. Same thing with the economy. We went through eight years of the Democrat agenda, and it produced the lowest economic output in U.S. history.
“Not only that, 800,000 people fell into poverty under Barack Obama and Joe Biden’s economic agenda, and they want to go back to that agenda. More regulations, tax increases. They’re saying what they believe they need to say but the Democratic party is dominated now by the radical, socialist left of their party.”
On Democrat Plans To Stack The Court:
“Chuck Schumer believes he’s going to be Majority Leader of the Senate. He’s said when he gets there all things are on the table, including ending the filibuster rule, which means they can do anything they want with 51 votes. He said he wants to add seats to the Supreme Court because he wants to add activists on there so the Court will make law and not just apply law.
“What we’ve done with Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, and soon with Barrett is we’ve added real constitutionalists. …Stacking the court means Democrats will add three or four seats to the Supreme Court so they get it out of balance again on the side of the very leftist, liberal agenda.”
On Additional Relief For Small Businesses:
“We put a bill on the floor a few weeks ago and couldn’t get one Democrat to vote with us. It was a targeted plan while we worked out the rest of the details on the bigger plan. It was about $670 billion. We need to get help immediately to small businesses. The Paycheck Protection Program was a huge success. It saved 1.5 million jobs in Georgia. The average loan size was just over $100,000.
“Small businesses need help for the next few months and that’s what this was intended to do, in addition to getting people back to work, getting kids back to school, and beating this virus. …The encouraging thing is Mnuchin and Pelosi are negotiating again. We want a deal. We want something done right now, not because of the political implications, but because these small businesses really need it.”
