The shift in the stances of the two main political parties in the United States has been extortionary to see over the last few years.
Before President Donald Trump, many believed that the Republicans were all about big business and that the Democrats were the true representatives of the middle and working classes.
With the introduction of Trump, everything changed, and the Republicans began to appeal to the working class more than the Dems, inevitably leading the DNC to adopt some pretty radical policies and leaving the working class behind.
This has never been more evident than in Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm’s press conference with White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, where she completely disregards the working class in the current Biden Energy Crisis, making snide remarks towards them.
The Biden Administration is currently concocting and mismanaging a number of crises at the same time, which is a great feat for anyone really.
They have presided over the border, economic, and identity crisis ever since President Joe Biden first stepped foot in the office, but now, a new crisis has risen to challenge the other three on hand.
The Biden Energy Crisis has hit the southeast of the United States hard, after the ransomware attack on the Colonial Pipeline last Friday.
Now, this isn’t directly the President’s fault, but he is at fault for ending the construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline and pushing his green agenda, effectively ending America’s hopes of becoming energy independent.
Now, they rue their mistakes, as millions of Americans have been left with gas shortages that are set to continue for some time.
But never fear, our leaders are on the case…right?
No gas? You should drive an electric car!!
Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm held a press conference with White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, to answer questions about the homemade energy crisis.
One reporter asked the energy sec if, due to the cyberattack on the Colonial Pipeline, the administration will be stepping up its efforts to introduce more forms of renewable energy.
All this question required was a simple yes, no, or ‘we’ll see’ answer from the energy secretary, however, she couldn’t help herself as she took a pretty nasty swipe at the working class.
She reaffirmed the administration’s commitments to meeting the President’s energy targets, before stating that if more people drove an electric car, then they wouldn’t be affected by the self-made gas shortages.
The absolute nerve of her!
Most working-class Americans are unable to purchase an electric car due to the high prices of them, a fact she would’ve known herself but not really cared about due to her own three-figure salary.
The average price sits at around $55,000, with the auto loan rate hovering around 5%.
This means, if you take out a 72-month auto loan with an average credit score and an average interest rate, an electric car will cost you $900 a month BEFORE insurance.
Most Americans don’t earn hundreds of thousands of dollars to splash on a fancy, new electric car, so they have to get by with what they do have, which is not helped whatsoever by the Blue States keeping them jobless and in lockdown.
The snobbery of the energy secretary will not be forgotten in a hurry, as you cannot blame the people for a crisis your administration created and think you’re going to get away with it.
