Yeah, it's an absolute mystery how anyone could have thought that The Democrats were promising $2,000 checks and not $1,400 checks (or even less if they let The Republicans negotiate them down some more)What fine print is this? I've read about the fine print in the deal meaning "small business" loans could potentially go to big businesses, but nothing about people not actually getting their $2,000.
...This isn't about it being $1,400, is it? Because, of course, people have already received $600. It would be better to get more-- more is always better-- but this is what was promised, no?
(You may notice the dates on a lot of these images too are January 5th and that time. You know, after the $600 Trump Checks were sent)
It's interesting that it became a "Finishing the $2,000 checks" AFTER The Georgia runoff...
So the BEST case scenario is they are incredibly bad at conveying what message they want to say. The much more likely scenario is they fucking bold face LIED to everyone and are using this $600 + $1400 Mickey Mouse Math to try to gaslight everyone into believing their bullshit.
If the Democrats want to "Fine Print" everyone and say "Well ACTUALLY...(she's a thousand year old dragon)", then go for it. But do it knowing what I and many of other progressives have warned; you're going to get slaughtered in the next round of elections because whether it was piss poor messaging or a straight up lie, people are going to feel betrayed by this. Just remember that we warned you (I mean...Democrats won't, they'll just blame us for splitting the party again for daring to hold Democrats accountable for what they said they were going to do).
