Twitter Flooded with Biden Voters Demanding $2000 Checks He Promised During Campaign
#BidenLied trends on platform as users demand stimulus money Democrat vowed to give
Joe Biden's voters have been flooding Twitter to demand the $2000 stimulus checks he promised them during the election campaign.
The hashtag #BidenLied started trending on the social media platform over the weekend as voters expressed anger over feeling cheated by the Democrat.
In his first days in office, Biden has been busy signing a stack of anti-Trump executive orders and memoranda, covering everything from climate change to transgender rights.
However, the former vice president has so far failed to make good on one of his key campaign promises: Getting $2,000 checks to Americans suffering from COVID-19 shutdowns.
In early January, during a campaign trip to Georgia to promote two Democratic candidates in the run-off elections, Biden made new stimulus checks a central promise.
He told Georgia voters that they would be getting $2,000 payments "immediately" if the Democrats won their Senate races in the state that week.
During a speech in Atlanta, Biden promised voters “that money will go out the door immediately to help people who are in real trouble.”
So far, nada.
Biden voters are not happy, however, and over the weekend, some took to Twitter and complained.
It didn’t take long for the #BidenLied hashtag to start trending.
The complaints came after the Democratic Party posted a tweet outlining Biden’s new plan to distribute $1,400 stimulus checks to American families, according to The Daily Wire.
That would come on top of the $600 checks that were approved earlier this month.
That equals $2,000.
“@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,” the party wrote.

But that wasn’t Biden’s promise. He said $2,000.
Again, for the record, here’s what he said on Jan. 21: “$600 is simply not enough when you have to choose between paying rent or putting food on the table.
"We need $2,000 stimulus checks.”

We need $2,000 stimulus checks.
Podcast host Ryan Knight led the criticism, writing: “$2000 is not $1400.
"So @JoeBiden is either a liar or really bad at math. I am going with LIAR.”
“#BidenLied and the whole government lied,” wrote another on Twitter.
“Don’t say your given us $2000 checks when your really given us $1400 checks.
"That’s just cold, bruh.”

Others got brutal.
“Liberals are more enraged that #BidenLied is trending than they are that half a million Americans are dead, millions more are threatened w/ eviction, tens of millions have no access to vaccine now,” wrote another.
“Nobody should be surprised that @JoeBiden lied about $2000 checks,” Knight wrote in another tweet.
"He lied the entire primary, but liberals were too busy chanting ‘Trump bad’ to even care that they were nominating a pathological liar. #BidenLied."

In the end, other Biden supporters began trying to bury the negative posts by using the #BidenLied hashtag when posting pictures of their pets. Ah, social media.
House Speaker Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has said the House could pass Biden’s proposal as early as Monday, which could mean the $1,400 checks would start arriving by the end of the week, according to CNET.
