As Twitchy reported earlier, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg was flanked by Vice President Kamala Harris today as he repeated his line that the solution to high gas prices is buying an electric car, which averages about what the average American household earns in a year. The solution is just not to be poor.
Also on hand was EPA Administrator Michael Regan, who toed the Biden administration’s line that we’re doing this green energy thing no matter how much it costs at the pump. What better time to transition to green energy?

By making gas unaffordable. Diabolical.

That's amazing, Where's the part where people who live paycheck to paycheck won't be able to survive paying sky high gas and electric bills?

You didn’t hear, they just need to buy an electric car. Duh.

Are they trying to lose every seat at the next election?

Remember when Mitch McConnell brought Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ Green New Deal to the floor for a vote and no one — not even its co-sponsors — voted for it? Then they blamed McConnell for bringing it to a vote as a stunt.
Yea, go ahead and press that accelerator – right into the abyss.

Why exactly is the EPA talking about JUSTICE in the context of environmental issues?

translation…. we are trying to break the people and crash the economy so you all have no choice but to accept our Great Reset.

How tone deaf is this right now. Unbelievable

Is the infrastructure in place yet? Can the grid handle charging all those electric cars yet? Is there enough charging stations? All those answers are no, no and hell no.

You just have to hang on until they’re ready.

WHOOPS! Biden meant to say ‘I applaud Canada’ but instead named a different country
