A lot of Democrats weren’t happy with President Biden last week when the White House tweeted that $1,400 checks were on the way after he’d promised that if Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock were elected to the Senate, $2,000 relief checks would “go out the door immediately.”
While Biden voters wait for those $2,000 checks that are never coming, they can check their mailboxes for masks, if the Biden administration can get its plan in action, White House Chief of Staff Ronald Klain told NBC News.
White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain speaks with @LesterHoltNBC about the plan to send masks to every American.
"We're gonna do whatever we can to make masks more available to people."

It’s all part of Biden’s plan to have every American wear a mask for just 100 days — never mind that Americans have been masked up since last spring and there’s plenty of talk about how two or even three masks would be more effective to stop the spread of COVID-19.
No thanks. You can circle that BS right on back to the idiot who thought this idea up.

My politicians went and destroyed my business and all I got was this stupid mask.

They’re going to spend like $30 a mask.
— B. Miller (@BlaiseInKC) February 4, 2021
Wasteful spending. Masks are available everywhere

My guess is they’re are stealing half the masks costs. Huge kickback from someone

I'm good! Keep your masks and your postage.. I have my own..wearing one is enough

Is this a joke? This won't change anything.

No wonder why America is in a steep decline if this is the best and brightest we have.

That’s just stupid and a waste of time & money, but that’s Biden’s whole presidency and administration.
— Karen FitzPatrick (@karfitz66) February 4, 2021
Only a year late. Everyone who is going to wear a mask is already wearing one.
— Michael Butler 🇺🇸 (@MDButler81) February 4, 2021
Exactly. No one’s going around without a mask because they can’t get one.
This has to be a joke. How do these people take themselves seriously?
— El Caminante (@GadsdenDave) February 4, 2021
Federal mask contracts is the goal here? This is why we’re told we still have to wear a mask despite being vaccinated. Gotta get that mask money y’all.

Who’s going to tell them that availability isn’t the problem?

All Trump had to to get reelected was to send every American a bottle of hand sanitizer and a face mask in the mail

Who doesn't have access to masks right now? Walk into any Walmart in America and they will just give you one.

What are these clowns doing? We can agree and disagree on liberal / conservative ideas but holy cow. Please for the love of science and all that is good, stop this madness. Its embarrassing. Its expensive. Its unnecessary. Leaders lead and look forward, not backward.

Is this an actual problem? I haven’t heard of this being reported as a problem.
— Russ (@RussWheeler9) February 4, 2021
What a waste, everyone has a mask already

Don’t forget that Klain was President Obama’s Ebola czar, so he’s been to this rodeo before.
JFC, we are 11 months into the pandemic and Biden wants to focus his energy on sending people masks now when what they should be sending us is the vaccine. Spend money on making more vaccine and getting it to people ASAP.

Almost every person in America has at least one mask, and many businesses offer them free at the door if you forgot to bring one, but sure, let's blow through a bunch more tax dollars for this.
— Aldous Huxley's Ghost™ (@AF632) February 4, 2021
They’re gonna cost $50 each, aren’t they?

Waiting for the video of Biden personally mailing a mask or two and media treating it like video of Jesus turning water into wine.

They should print “$2,000” on the front of them, just to really fuck with us.
