The Democrat party can't control inflation, gas prices, or even figure out how to unload cargo ships - but their brilliant voters think they can actually lower the temperature of planet earth by giving them money.

😂 😂 😂

Yeah thanks a lot democRats.

Your failed policies allow me to pay an extra $25.60 every time I fill up my truck over what it cost me last year.

A year ago I would have paid $42.60 to fill my truck on a 20 gallon fill up. Now it costs, on average, $68.20 due to your mismanagement and basic misunderstanding of Economics 101.

Sniffy Biden shuts down American oil and gas production then begs OPEC to increase production while helping the Russians build a pipeline that will enslave Europe.

All while allowing an outright invasion at our southern border by criminals!

Great job traitors!

The Biden regime's only concerns are global warming, Jan 6th, vaccines or else, and everyone is a racist.

Just in case you're wondering why we have runaway inflation, gas prices, and the economy is in the toilet.
