I can really understand why. I’ve written about this before, but apparently, the Democrat National Committee, on their official Twitter site, posted the following:
That has a lot of Democrats upset because as Joe Biden pointed out, he was going to send $2,000 checks “immediately” once Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff got elected to the US Senate from Georgia. In fact, this was one of their online ads:
As you can plainly see, there is no mention of this being a $1,400 check! I am seeing $2,000, how about you?
Well, as you can imagine, it’s drawn a lot of ire from the Democrat voters. Here is a smattering of what they had to say:
Gaslighting the very people who trusted & voted for you.
Amazing that your side easily sails under this extremely low bar every time.
$600 “down payment” huh? weird that no one called it that – especially as you had senatorial candidates running on $2000 checks – ever until now.
Thank you for lying to everyone for the whole senate election cycle!
Good luck in the midterms with this incredible strategy
If you didn’t actually know this was an underhanded bait and switch you wouldn’t feel the need to keep phrasing it like this.
I’m so full of fury and disbelief that people could actually defend walking back A CAMPAIGN PROMISE MADE IN THE MIDDLE OF A PANDEMIC to give people $2K checks to help them get by.
Thank you to everyone who is calling out @JoeBiden and @TheDemocrats for blatantly lying about $2000 checks. They control the entire government and they need to be held accountable. #BidenLied
And it goes on and on. You can go to Twitter and insert the hashtag #BidenLied to see a lot more. Suffice it to say, for whatever reason, Joe Biden, who initially DID say he was going to send out $2,000 checks for Stimulus 3.0, has decided that’s too much money. It’s probably because he realized it would push the overall cost of the bill to well over $2 Trillion, and he didn’t want to take anything away from his liberal city and state bailout (as California and New York say, “Thank you!”).
Look, I’ve said a million times that I don’t need a check of any size from the federal government. Give me what you owe me (which is basically Medicare and Social Security) because I’ve paid for those things…and they are NOT entitlements. Other than that, keep my taxes as low as possible and don’t waste money on stupid programs that don’t work. And this frankly is one of them. There ARE people in need out there. They SHOULD be helped. I’m not one of them. In fact, most people I know that are getting these checks don’t need it. They are either well off enough, or on Social Security and their pension/IRA/KEOUGH, and don’t need more.
These folks though are right on one account. If you are going to promise something in a campaign, don’t think We The People are so stupid that we don’t know the difference between $2,000 and $1,400. Yes, the National Education Association has dumbed down America. Thank God, not all of us have been dumbed down. Some of us still have a brain that works.
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
