Actress Susan Sarandon blasted Democrats on Thursday, accusing them of pulling a "bait and switch" when it comes to the party's push for $2,000 coronavirus relief checks.

The actress was responding to a video mashup shared on Twitter that shows President BidenJoe BidenIRS to roll out payments for ,000 child tax credit in July Capitol Police told not to use most aggressive tactics in riot response, report finds Biden to accompany first lady to appointment for 'common medical procedure' MORE, Vice President Harris and Democratic Georgia Sens. Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock all calling for speedy legislation granting the American people $2,000 checks at various campaign rallies.

COVID-19 aid legislation passed late last year included $600 direct payments to taxpayers. Biden's current $1.9 trillion coronavirus proposal includes a round of $1,400 checks, meant to bring the total to $2,000.


"Where are the $2K checks you promised @JoeBiden @KamalaHarris @ReverendWarnock @ossoff? At a time when only 39% of Americans could afford a $1,000 emergency & over 15 million have lost employer-sponsored health insurance, the diff between $1,400 & $2K is a matter of survival," Sarandon wrote.

A budget resolution that would be the first step in passing the coronavirus relief bill while bypassing the 60-vote legislative filibuster cleared the Senate in a 50-50 party-line vote early Friday morning, with the tie broken by Harris.

In addition to the $1,400 checks, Biden's plan calls for a $400 per week federal unemployment benefit, $350 billion for state and local governments, a minimum wage hike to $15 per hour and more money for child care and schools.
