Writing on Twitter on Tuesday, far-left “Squad” member Rep. Ayanna Pressley claimed falsely that Republican incumbent Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue are “standing between” Georgia families and a “$2,000 survival check.”
“Mitch McConnell, Kelly Loeffler & David Perdue are standing between your family and a $2,000 survival check Georgia,” Pressley tweeted, urging Georgians to vote for Democrat candidates Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff “like lives depend on it.”
Of course, both Loeffler and Perdue actually have stated publicly that they support Trump’s demand to increase the amount of the checks to $2000. Other Republican senators have expressed their support for increasing checks as well, including Sens. Marco Rubio, Lindsey Graham, and Josh Hawley, but that doesn’t ever stop Democrats like Pressley from lying about it to demonize conservatives as “heartless.”
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell introduced a measure that not only increases checks to $2,000, but creates a commission to investigate voter fraud, and addresses Section 230 — three requests outlined by the president on Sunday.
