(Atlanta, Georgia) – Today on Georgia’s Morning News with Zoller and Bryant, liberal gubernatorial candidate Jason Carter reiterated his claim that as governor he would add a billion dollars in education funding. When asked what he would cut in the state budget to offset such an increase, Carter said, “there’s a bunch of stuff” in the budget that can sustain cuts. When pressed for specifics, Carter replied, “that discussion is one that’s incredibly important.”
“Despite the rhetoric from his liberal colleagues that cuts to the budget were ‘deep bone,’ Senator Jason Carter believes more departments and programs can be trimmed to free up an extra billion dollars for education,” said GAGOP Chairman John Padgett. “As usual, Carter is short on the details.
“It’s no surprise that Georgia voters have little confidence in liberal lawmakers like Jason Carter who clearly have no understanding of the state budget. They want to complain and cast stones but have no concrete plans for moving Georgia forward.
“The question remains: What does Senator Jason Carter want to cut in the state budget?”
