Democrats are angry that the $1,400 checks they gave out to placate the public amidst the biggest wealth transfer to the super-rich in history hasn't bought them any public support.
From Politico, "Dems thought giving voters cash was the key to success. So what happened?":
When they took power this past winter, Democrats made a commitment to not repeat what many viewed as a critical misstep of the Obama years. The legislation they passed would do two things well: make sure that the benefits were frontloaded and that the impact was tangible.As a reminder, Biden said they were going to send $2,000 checks to everyone in order to get out the vote in Georgia then failed to follow through, but that's neither here nor there!
Those numbers are causing agita on Capitol Hill, where there is growing concern that in a rush to continue legislative momentum around infrastructure and Biden's Build Back Better social spending plan, the party has failed to hammer home the benefits of their first big bill: the American Rescue Plan.I think the average American can see that with out-of-control inflation, surging food prices, home prices through the roof, used car prices at record levels, widespread shortages of goods and a return to rationing of toilet paper they're actually getting poorer.
Meanwhile, the super-rich -- the ultimate benefactors of the bipartisan corona bailout screwjob -- are getting richer than ever.
This was all by design and Kentucky Rep. Thomas Massie (R) was the lone voice to speak out against it.
