Decrease regulation. “When you have all these federal regulations, that’s terrible.” The federal government “has a tendency to be overreaching.”
Increase investment. Voted for the Inflation Reduction Act’s major renewable energy investments. Calls for “robust federal fun-ding to create jobs and move our economy forward.” Renew $300-per-child monthly tax credit. “These monthly payments have helped (families) clothe and feed their children, pay for after school and day care.”
Yes. Calls denial of the 2020 Presidential election “the Big Lie.” “We have seen sadly a willingness by some to literally burn down the system for short-term political gain.”
Likely tighten. “Our harm to the planet often causes disproportionate impacts on marginalized communities.” The U.S. must address their ”lack of access to clean water and air.”
Less. Will “vote to confirm Constitutional judges to our courts who will protect our right to bear arms.” We can’t stop violence through “departments that want to take away your rights.”
No. Wants people to “get off the government health care.” Did not get a coronavirus vaccine “because I don’t think the government should be telling you to get one.”
Yes. “Georgia needs to expand Medicaid.” Voted to expand Medicaid coverage in Georgia and other states that haven’t done so, and to lower drug costs for seniors. Voted for the American Rescue Plan’s support for COVID testing and vaccine purchase and distribution.
Restrict. “The border crisis…is bringing drugs, crime, and human trafficking to our state.” “Will work to secure our southern border.” No position found on DACA.
Create a comprehensive plan. “We need comprehensive immigration reform that fixes our broken system, keeps our nation safe, and provides a reasonable path to citizenship.” Supports a DACA path to citizenship, “you have no right to celebrate the dream if you will not liberate the dreamers.”
Limit. Gay marriage should be determined by each state. About transgender athletes, “it’s written in the Bible…you have two [sexes], there’s a man and a woman and that’s it.”
No recent position found. In 2013 said, “Marijuana used to be considered so bad. Now states are voting to legalize it. What’s next? Legalizing cocaine?”
Raise. Sponsored a 2021 bill to raise the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour.
More research and better training. Supported a Senate bill to train police and collect data on police use of force. The bill rejected an alternative that would make it easier to sue following police misconduct.
Reimagine the relationship with communities they serve. Co-sponsored a bi-partisan bill to fund de-escalation training, body cameras, and mental health resources. Appoint independent prosecutors to handle police-involved shootings. “I oppose defunding the police. But we have to respect law enforcement enough to hold them accountable.”
No. Regarding student loan forgiveness, said, “I didn’t co-sign for anyone’s loan and it’s not right. It’s not fair.”
Yes. Supports Georgia’s 2021 Election Integrity bill, which limits the time for absentee and early voting, adds new voter ID rules, restricts giving out food and water, and lets the state remove power from local election boards. Opposes Democratic bills to limit voting restrictions; said naming one for John Lewis is “a shame.”
No. Cosponsored two bills, the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act and the Freedom to Vote Act, to “make it easier to vote.” Says that by refusing to at least debate these bills Republicans have abdicated responsibility during a time when there’s “an all-out assault on our democracy.”
