Unbelievable. Is he senile, stupid, or deliberately destroying America?
The Brandon Administration has effectively shut down all oil production in the U.S. It has closed one massive pipeline, and is on the verge of shutting down another one in Michigan. Gas prices nationwide have increased by 45% since Joe took office.
A year ago America was the biggest producer of crude on the planet….now he is literally begging OPEC to pump more oil!
Yet today, Clueless Joe came out with a statement that will quickly find its way into Republican campaign commericals in every state in 2022.
Asked about the supply chain crisis, exploding inflation and skyrocketing energy costs HE caused, Joe said this…
“Did You Ever Think You’d Pay This Much for a Gallon of Gas?”
It has to be seen to be believed…
Say WHAT? How do you think THAT happened, Joe?
The president spoke about gas prices during an event at the Port of Baltimore to celebrate the passage of his $1.3 trillion infrastructure bill.
“People are feeling it. They’re feeling it,” Biden said, speaking at length about supply chain disruptions and the higher cost of goods.
Biden defended the higher cost of goods, arguing that thanks to trillions of dollars of government spending that he signed, more Americans had money to spend, adding to demand for goods.
“Everything from a gallon of gas to a loaf of bread costs more,” Biden said. “And it’s worrisome even though wages are going up.”
Biden did not mention his administration’s actions to reduce domestic production of oil, such as halting all gas and oil leases on federal land and closing the Keystone XL pipeline.
And now Biden is considering closing yet another oil pipeline, in Michigan, which will increase oil costs even more.
Yet here was Brandon blaming OPEC and Russia for not “producing enough” oil despite his cutting our production to the bone!
And his Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm this week said Biden was considering tapping the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve — which is designed for emergencies such a massive natural disasters or wars, not incompetent energy policies.
And Biden is about to shut down ANOTHER pipeline in Michigan!
Granholm also said there was NOTHING they could do to prevent higher heating prices this winter for suffering Americans.
But what the media is not reporting is that Biden’s $1.2 trillion “infrastructure” bill (which contains only $550 billion in actual infrustructure spending) would actually increase energy prices with a new Federal natural gas tax — which will hike electricity prices in 42 states.
Biden is making Jimmy Carter look like a leadership genius. God help us the next 3 years.,
