Tea Party Patriots Action Applauds GA Gov. Kemp for Lifting All Covid Restrictions


Atlanta, GA – On Wednesday, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp announced that all COVID-19 restrictions in the state would be lifted, beginning today. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement:

“It’s time for all Georgians — and all Americans — to get back to normal, to get back to work and back to school, and we appreciate Governor Kemp for recognizing that fact and taking action to make it happen. The government response to this pandemic has led to an economic catastrophe. Just today, the Labor Department announced that first-time jobless claims are rising, and remain more than three times higher than they were pre-pandemic. California Governor Newsom said this week that his goal is to fully reopen his state’s economy in two and a half months. That’s unacceptably slow. Every state should learn from Georgia, Florida, Texas, and South Dakota about the urgency and safety of reopening. The time for excuses is over.”
