Earlier today President Biden was visibly angered by Americans who he obviously thinks are too stupid to not understand that government overspending does not contribute to inflation. Biden also said that the “bankers on Wall Street” are preventing more domestic energy production.
When it comes to the subject of rising gas prices, congressional Democrats are also trying to help spin Biden’s way out of the problem. What’s Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s proposal to give Americans some price relief at the pump? The idea is quintessentially progressive Democrat:
Putin's war is driving up gas prices — and Big Oil companies are raking in record profits.
I’m joining @SenWhitehouse in introducing a Windfall Profits Tax to curb Big Oil profiteering and provide relief to Americans at the gas pump.
