The Democrats probably didn’t expect a ratio when they tweeted that President Biden would be building on the $600 “down payment” provided last year by sending $1,400 checks to households across America.
.@POTUS will build on the $600 down payment provided by Congress last year, sending an additional $1,400 to households across America, totaling direct payments to $2,000 per person. pic.twitter.com/9zfBJT7t7O

So it’s not that they’re subtracting $600 from the promised $2,000 checks, they’re building on the $600 down payment. But Biden said that if Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock were elected to the Senate, those $2,000 checks would be on their way immediately.
Gaslighting the very people who trusted & voted for you.

You guys advertised this when you wanted to win 2 Senate seats in Georgia.
Notice the part where it has a check that says $2000 on it? 🤔 pic.twitter.com/7yjjFnwECj

$600 "down payment" huh? weird that no one called it that – especially as you had senatorial candidates running on $2000 checks – ever until now.

Interesting that Joe Biden is willing to build on something originating from the Trump administration. I think we should disavow fascism but maybe the Democrats don’t agree?

Lol imagine how shitty y'all are gonna look when Trump manages to send us more money than you all do with a majority across the board.
— Loot Every Walmart (@BethLynch2020) January 30, 2021
Imagine how shitty they look since when even Trump was saying give us $2000 Dems claimed they could only squeeze out $600 because of Senate Republicans.
Now Dems have the opportunity to give to $2000 immediately, recurring & retro & it’s an all day commercial for $1400 someday.

People thought they were getting a new $2000. If they didn't you wouldn't have to write this out. Terrible work.

I guess “$2000 out the door immediately” means “maybe $1400 in a couple months”

Stop this. It is not working and only making it worse. Admit it was huge misstep or just accept most voters know it was a huge lie and they will never forget.

Parents of children needing insulin feel the same, only worse. With the stroke of a pen Joe instantly made big pharma very happy. Yet, here we are almost 2 weeks into Joe's dictatorship & the people who actually voted for him (not the dead ones) are failing to thrive. Sad.

When do the $2k checks go out the door? Before or after this $1400?
— Tim (@refundpolicy) January 31, 2021
Maybe a journalist could ask Jen Psaki where the $2,000 checks are and she could circle back to them.
