MARJORIE Taylor Green has said she won’t vote for the “left-wing lunacy” of the Democrats’ Covid stimulus package.
The QAnon supporting Georgia representative slammed President Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion stimulus plan, which if approved would see $1400 checks sent out in the coming weeks.
Republican Green said she would be voting against what she described as the “$2.1 trillion” package.
“I will proudly vote against the Democrat’s Blue State Bailout!,” she tweeted.
“It’s a $2.1 trillion Christmas wish list of left-wing lunacy. And there’s still $1 trillion left over from the last one!”
Greene was elected to the House of Representatives in November as a supporter of then-president Donald Trump.
She has repeatedly voiced support for the QAnon movement, which holds that a group of global elites is running a child sex-trafficking ring and that Trump spent his time in office fighting it, as well as other conspiracy theories.
QAnon has in recent years gained widespread support among Trump's Republican base.
But her controversial views led Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell so say: “Loony lies and conspiracy theories are cancer for the Republican Party and our country.”
Though he didn’t mention her by name, Greene hit back saying the “real cancer for the Republican Party is weak Republicans".
This week an interview resurfaced in which she claimed Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg is trained “like a dog”.
In the 2019 interview with then-Georgia Gun Owners executive director Patrick Parsons, Greene spoke about following Hogg around Capitol Hill.
Greene has said that the Parkland massacre, in which 17 Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students died, was a “false flag planned shooting.”
“So he is very trained, he's like a dog, he's completely trained,” Greene said of Hogg in the video found by NBC News on Tuesday.
Greene told Parsons, who is now her chief of staff, that Hogg “only talks when he’s scripted.”
The new, previously unreported interview arose as Democrats demand that Republicans remove Greene from all the committees she serves on.
House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer told House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy that Republicans must remove Greene.
If that didn’t happen then Democrats say they will take up the matter during the House Rules Committee meeting.
