Senator brags about driving pricey electric car to D.C. gleefully ignoring gas prices crushing ordinary Americans


Once again, a leftist lawmaker has expressed the elitist “let them eat cake” attitude of Democrat Party members who are indifferent to the suffering of the little people.

Democrats are clearly in love with their electric vehicles, a major feature of the Green New Deal utopia, and can hardly conceal their delight over the record gas prices that are currently crushing the household budgets of ordinary Americans.

During Tuesday’s Senate Finance Committee on President Joe Biden’s 2023 budget, Michigan Senator Debbie Stabenow boasted about her new electric car, and the wondrous journey that she made from the Wolverine State to the swamp, breezing by gas stations with the average national price tickling $5 per gallon, a perfect example of the growing disconnect between the political elites and those who don’t have the money to shell out for one of the costly status symbols.

An excited Stabenow briefly interrupted the testimony of Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen to make it all about her to plug the expensive EVs.

“I do have to say, just on the issue of gas prices, after waiting for a long time to have enough chips in this country to finally get my electric vehicle,” she said. “I got it and drove it from Michigan to here this last weekend and went by every single gas station, and it didn’t matter how high it was.”

“And so I’m looking forward to the opportunity for us to move to vehicles that aren’t going to be dependent on the whims of the oil companies and the international markets,” added Stabenow.

Twitter reacted to Stabenow’s elitist gloating which was like rubbing salt into the wounds of suffering Americans who are priced out of the EV market and reeling from Biden’s ruinous energy policies.

For those who may expect Congressional Democrats and the Biden administration to “do something” to address the economic punishment being inflicted on beleaguered Americans at the pump, their pleas will continue to fall on deaf ears, with Treasury Secretary Yellen also less concerned about the deteriorating conditions of the moment and more into chasing the unicorns of clean energy.

Then there’s the nation’s “leader” himself, letting it slip that the administration and its allies view the skyrocketing gas prices as part of an “incredible transition,” or in former Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s terms, never let a really good crisis “go to waste.”

Help is NOT on the way, the one undeniable certainty in an uncertain time.
