Let Them Eat Cake: Biden Crows That Those Who Bought Electric Cars Aren’t Hurting From High Gas Prices

Published

on

My latest in PJ Media:

Jen Psaki let the cat out of the bag a couple of weeks ago, when she explained the upside of high gas prices (which so very many people had somehow overlooked): “Look, our view is that the rise in gas prices over the long term makes an even stronger case for doubling down on our investment and our focus on clean energy options, so we are not relying on the fluctuations and OPEC and their willingness to put more supply and meet the demand in the market.” On Tuesday, Old Joe Biden doubled down on the idea that skyrocketing gas prices are all part of a Leftist social engineering project when he claimed that those who bought electric cars are saving money these days instead of paying exorbitant prices at the pump.

The ostensible president read off his teleprompter: “I also want to briefly address one myth about inflated gas prices: They are not due to environmental measures.” Of course, Joe! How could anyone have possibly gotten the crazy idea that killing the Keystone Pipeline and destroying America’s energy independence could have anything, anything whatsoever, to do with rising gas prices? “My effort to combat climate change is not raising the price of gas or increasing its availability.” He meant “decreasing,” but you knew that. And since this is Joe Biden, you also knew that he was going to tell you how a sow’s ear is really a silk purse, and a disaster is actually manna raining from heaven: “It — what it is doing: It’s increasing the availability of jobs. Jobs building electric cars, like the one I drove at the GM Detroit — at the GM factory in Detroit last week.”

Biden went even farther, pointing out that if you had been one of the environmentally-conscious folks who bought an electric car, you wouldn’t be watching more and more of your income flying away at the gas pump: “For the hundreds of thousands of folks who bought one of those electric cars, they’re going to save $800 to $1,000 in fuel costs this year.” Not only are they weathering a bread shortage by eating cake, but they’re also helping all of us out: “And we’re going to put those savings within reach of more Americans and create jobs installing solar panels, batteries, electric heat pumps — jobs making those clean power-generating devices.” This is going to result in a new dawning of prosperity: “And by the way, deploying these technologies for each home where they’re installed is going to save folks an additional hundreds of dollars in energy costs every year.”

There is more. Read the rest here.
