What Kind of ‘Conservative’ Votes for Billions in Wasteful Spending? Doug Collins.

WHAT KIND OF ‘CONSERVATIVE’ VOTES FOR BILLIONS IN WASTEFUL SPENDING? DOUG COLLINS.

ATLANTA – Today, Georgians for Kelly Loeffler released the newest installment of their “What Kind of Conservative?” digital ad campaign, which exposes Doug Collins as a fake conservative who sides with liberal Democrats to vote for higher taxes, bloated budgets, and funding for sanctuary cities.

Doug Collins claims to be a fiscal conservative, but his record shows that couldn’t be further from the truth. In Congress, Doug voted with Nancy Pelosi for billions of dollars worth of wasteful spending, like congressional wine tastings and a bailout for Puerto Rico.

Conservative businesswoman and political outsider Kelly Loeffler is a proven fiscal conservative. Unlike tax-and-spend career politician Doug Collins, Kelly understands the importance of balanced budgets and the need for good fiscal stewardship. She has co-sponsored legislation to reduce deficits and rein in out-of-control government spending.
