Every time Democrats talk about issues like the economy, gas prices, or the economic hardships of average Americans, they come off as being extraordinarily out of touch.
Michigan Democrat Debbie Stabenow recently bragged about her new electric car and how she was able to drive to Washington, avoiding all the high priced gas stations along the way.
It must be nice. Of course, most Americans can’t afford to buy gas, let alone a new electric car.

Amid high gas prices, Twitter drags Sen. Debbie Stabenow for touting electric car: ‘Let them eat Teslas!’
Senator Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich., incensed conservatives on Twitter Tuesday while bragging that she doesn’t have to worry about high gas prices because she drives an electric car.
Stabenow also claimed she can’t wait for more Americans to “move to vehicles that aren’t going to be dependent on the whims of the oil companies.”
The senator’s comments came during Tuesday’s Senate Finance Committee hearing which featured testimony from United States Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen. Yellen was called to clarify the Biden administration’s approach to tackling the high level of inflation and gas prices Americans are currently facing…
Stabenow stated, “I just have to say just on the issue of that at gas prices; after waiting for a long time to have enough chips in this country to finally get my electric vehicle, I got it and drove it from Michigan to here this last weekend and went by every single gas station. It didn’t matter how high it was.”

Democrats are going to get clobbered in November and they deserve it.
