Democrats won the Georgia Senate runoffs, thanks to unprecedented voter turnout in liberal counties. (Republican counties surprisingly underperformed.)
Now that they have probably enough votes to force their agenda, they are making big promises.
Although they were largely absent in providing relief during the pandemic last year, now suddenly they want to help.
One of those promises, called a bribe by some, might be coming in a matter of days.
From Fox Business:
Democrats pledged to deliver $2,000 stimulus checks to Americans as soon as possible after winning control of the Senate with a pair of victories in Georgia’s runoff elections.
The move would make good on a promise that President-elect Joe Biden made to Georgia voters ahead of the runoff elections, which saw Democrats Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff win their respective races against incumbent GOP Sen. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, a Republican whose Senate term ended Sunday.
President Trump wanted larger checks for Americans, around $2,000. But Republicans under Mitch McConnell blocked this move—claiming to want to pass other reforms.
Some are saying that move by McConnell may have cost them the Senate—as Democratic voters came out in force to elect these two radical leftists with a promise of checks from Biden.
Now, with little resistance from conservatives, Democrats are poised to pass whatever bills they want for the foreseeable future.
Now they say they want to provide Americans with $2,000 checks. Small reward, given the massive loss Americans suffered during the pandemic.
Democrats forced states closed, refused to provide relief, and promise more hardship, despite a vaccine. But now they think they can pay off Americans with $2,000—without any explanation of where the money will come from.
I think you know where.
Do you think Democrats will pass this measure—and will it help Americans during the pandemic?
- After winning the Georgia runoffs, Democrats promise to payout $2,000 to Americans.
- They previously refused to provide COVID relief during and up to the election.
- Democrats also shut down states, adding more pain to the pandemic.
