(RepublicanReport.com) – Stimulus checks have been the subject of bitter debate between the Right and Left for months now. Liberal representatives repeatedly insisted on giving the public overly generous amounts that would’ve placed enormous pressure on public funds.
Of course, this move wasn’t motivated by simple generosity. It seems Democrats, being keenly aware of the looming election, were willing to promise the moon and the stars if they thought it would win votes. Unfortunately for them, this strategy appears to have backfired.
During the campaign for the Georgia runoff elections, Democrats apparently promised $2,000 relief checks if they took control of the Senate. Analysts have suggested this may have contributed to Ossoff’s and Warnock’s successes. However, it has since become clear the amount President Joe Biden intends to write checks for is $1,400, not $2,000 as promised.
Well, I sure as hell heard it as "We'll get you $2k *instead of* the $600," not "in addition to."

Understandably, Georgia voters (along with many other Americans) feel betrayed by this lie. This story is a perfect example of why conservatism offers a more realistic worldview than liberalism nowadays. Resources are scarce, and politicians who pretend otherwise are either delusional or dishonest. It also shows just how few qualms Democrats have about lying to achieve political goals.
