There’s Only One Way to Avoid More Chaos in Congress: Win in Georgia!
Alan Minsky, Executive Director, for the PDA National Team
Late last night, Trump signed the COVID-19 relief and federal spending bill, averting a government shutdown. We shouldn’t have any illusions about why he capitulated. Yes, Trump is an absurd, self-serving monstrosity—but in this case, he was at odds with his own party in demanding larger relief checks to individuals, and the GOP wouldn’t bend.
As if we didn’t have enough reasons already, this chaotic episode proves once again it is essential for the welfare of all American society that the Democrats win both seats in Georgia. Unless Mitch McConnell and the GOP are demoted to the Senate minority, they will block any efforts congressional Democrats make to provide adequate relief.
We need a functional Congress in this time of crisis. We need a Congress that is responsive to the needs of the American people.
Thus, PDA is working non-stop to defeat Mitch McConnell and the GOP in Georgia, just as we will work non-stop on behalf of the interests of poor, working, and middle-class people, whatever the results of these special elections.
