President Joe Biden is tottering on the edge of his most inefficient vote-buying binge yet. As the runoff race for Georgia’s Senate seat enters its final weeks, the Biden administration may rubberstamp a nationwide handout to snare a handful of Peach State ballots.
Georgia has been the scene of some of the most brazen political shenanigans and worst demagoguery in recent years. When Democratic candidate Raphael Warnock was in a runoff in January 2021 for the seat, his campaign distributed fliers promising, “Want a $2,000 Check? Vote Warnock.” Biden endorsed that promise, and Warnock’s victory gave control of the Senate to Democrats.
That opened the floodgates to trillions in additional federal spending, including more COVID stimulus payments that helped spur the high inflation now vexing all Americans.
Even The Washington Post recently cringed at the cravenness of the Warnock campaign. A Post editorial stated: “During the state’s last runoff in 2021, the Democratic candidates leaned hard in favor of more generous stimulus checks. It helped them triumph.”
The Georgia race comes in the wake of the judicial nullification of Team Biden’s biggest election bribe for the midterms. On Aug. 24, Biden announced he was canceling up to $20,000 in student debt for borrowers who earned less than $125,000 (or $250,000 for couples).
