Biden administration’s out-of-touch advice on gas, inflation

Gas prices have reached record highs. The extra cash you spend on gas to fuel your car and to get to and from the grocery store is even more painful. Prices of basic items like beef, poultry and pork are rising because of inflation.

Instead of taking action to address these issues, such as cutting gas taxes and producing more oil domestically, the Biden administration and its like-minded people make out-of-touch suggestions for how the U.S. financial How can you deal with stress?

It would be foolish to dismiss this advice as simply ignorant, as if those elitist liberals ran from meeting to meeting on the hill, simply not understanding the plight of the American people.

From electric vehicles to vegetarianism, the advice is intentional. It’s about promoting Green New Deal-style policies.

Democrats meet complaints about gas prices with tips on whether to buy an electric vehicle or take the bus. Green New Deal Advocates want to Zero-emissions transport mode “as much as is technically possible.” This is why the administration is committed to clean transportation, whether it helps China or increases our debt.

Struggling with the cost of filling up your Honda Accord or Ford F-Series pickup? Democrats suggest you trade it in for a more expensive electric vehicle — one with batteries made in China, which owns that market. Never mind that with New York City alone the cost of electricity is skyrocketing seeing An increase of 28.2 percent, or that new cars have been pushed by inflation.

If you’re concerned about where you’ll plug in for a long drive from Duluth, Minnesota, or Plano, Texas, or Pocatello, Idaho, you’re covered. The Biden administration is spending billions for 500,000 charging stations nationwide. When and where will they be installed? Who knows. But advocates of the Green New Deal have repeatedly said that we should start building this infrastructure now.

But luckily there are electric vehicles available, even if you’re prepared to buy: They’re also victims of a supply-chain crisis that the Biden administration claimed wasn’t real (it claims to have solved it). before).

If you can’t wait for an electric vehicle (or if you literally can’t afford one), the Biden administration has another suggestion: Take public transportation. administration just unveiled a plan Billions to be spent on electrification of public transport systems. What a great timing.

You just have to understand that the comforts you’ve taken care of while driving – like basic safety – don’t extend to your new mode of transportation.

In Seattle, bus rides come with high connectivity or broken collarbone,

Rent enforcement used to keep the homeless off public transportation, but Seattle’s progressive leadership woke up declared it racist, Since then, homeless addictions have taken over. bus drivers filed Historically there are a plethora of complaints about homeless addicts who use narcotics such as fentanyl, meth and heroin on their coaches.

The Metro system can be a viable alternative to the bus for New Yorkers. It is unfortunate that Democratic politicians have made it so difficult to arm themselves; You will need protection.

Crime has increased in NYC’s subway system, where prolific criminals are taking advantage of the city’s light-crime policies and judges not to punish. has been there rise in violent crimes The city’s underground transit system is plaguing and city leaders struggle to bring it under control.

If you live in Central America or are a single parent, you may not have a viable option for public transportation. It seems impossible for Democrats to claim they are the party of the working class when they don’t understand the struggle of traveling across town between two jobs or taking a bus to take their kids to football practice. This is why when it comes to the Green New Deal, these conflicts are ignored.

But at least Green New Deal advocates are trying to help that single parent save some cash over dinner. With the prices of beef, poultry and pork soaring, Teresa Ghillarducci, an economics professor and Green New Deal advocate, recommends you go vegetarian.

“While your tastes may not be used up, delicious meat substitutes include vegetables (where prices are a little over 4%, or lentils and beans, which are about 9%). Cut down on moderate organisms and consume plants. Plan to do it straight. It’s a more efficient, healthier, and cheaper way to get in calories,” he says. wrote,

This is clearly not fair or wise advice—meat eaters are Healthy By some measures compared to vegetarians. And in my experience, carnivores are also happier than vegetarians. The lack of a juicy steak or burger will make anyone sad. But the advice to eat lentils instead of burgers is in line with the Green New Deal.

One of the Green New Deal’s most infamous concepts was an attempt to address the “farting cow” and the contribution of factory farming to methane production. The main champion of the policy, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (DN.Y.), suggested You eat less meat, which was picked up by militant vegetarian organizations, arguing that the policy included better meat consumption.

There’s no doubt that Biden administration officials and left-talking heads are out of touch. Frankly, politicians on both sides of the aisle have become accustomed to the other people serving them, pushing them from meeting to meeting and serving their meals. Money and power will do that.

But when their advice is in line with what Green New Deal campaigners were preaching, it probably shouldn’t be written. This is probably intentional. And claims that Vladimir Putin, Big Oil, or meat producers are responsible for the price hike, are particularly absurd.
