President-elect Joe Biden plans to announce a $1,400 personal stimulus check for individuals on Thursday despite voters expecting a $2,000 check as promised.
Reuters reports Biden will announce a massive $1.5 trillion spending program which will include $1,400 stimulus checks.
That might surprise Americans who expected a $2,000 check promised by Biden and Democrats on the campaign trail for the Senate runoff election in Georgia.
Defenders of the president-elect argue his $2,000 promise included the $600 checks, making the new checks $1,400.
But Biden joined Congressional Democrat leaders in late December and early January repeatedly calling for $2,000 stimulus checks even after the $600 checks were sent out.
