[Ed. Note: Why stop at $2,000? Why not $20,000? Or $200,000?]

Far-left Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) rushed to falsely claim credit for President Donald Trump announcing on Tuesday night that he wanted the $600 stimulus checks beefed up to $2,000.
“Let’s do it. @RashidaTlaib and I already co-wrote the COVID amendment for $2,000 checks, so it’s ready to go. Glad to see the President is willing to support our legislation,” Ocasio-Cortez claimed. “We can pass $2k checks this week if the Senate GOP agrees to stand down.”
“Me and @AOC have the amendment ready,” Tlaib said. “Send the bill back, and we will put in the $2,000 we’ve been fighting for that your party has been blocking.”
However, Trump made no reference to what they proposed and, in fact, slammed Democrats for the games that they played before the election when it came to a stimulus bill.
