Americans who can’t pay for gas, food and their mortgage are being told by Granholm that their lives will be made easier by paying for gas, food, their mortgage and solar panels because those solar panels are 30 percent off and can be financed. This is seriously their message — that paying 70 percent of something you can’t afford will allow you to afford it in the long run because it’ll cut your energy bill. This may seem like a sick joke. Unfortunately, the joke’s on us. Conservatives took to Twitter to lambast Granholm for her tone-deaf performance. “Can’t afford food or gas, but this is great…” GOP Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas wrote.

“GOP just needs to run ad after ad of Granholm telling the poors to buy solar panels and electric cars to save money,” said conservative radio host Erick Erickson.

“There is no denying the fact Democrats want Americans to suffer to achieve their nonsensical green utopia,” wrote Republican Rep. Chip Roy of Texas.

Of course, if the Biden administration was really serious about solving energy inflation, it would increase energy production at home through policies which encourage drilling for more oil and natural gas. But the administration isn’t serious about it beyond using it as cover to enact its agenda. Consider that, as Americans continue to suffer high food and gas prices, Jennifer Granholm doesn’t talk about how she’s going to make the things you already buy cheaper. She wants you to buy more things — partially with government money — which will eventually pay for themselves somewhere down the road. (Sure, that may be 10 to 20 years for a solar power system, according to Investopedia — but why let facts get in the way?) Sadly, it’s not like this game of “Hold My Beer” is going to end anytime. In fact, the only way I ever see it ending is when either a) Joe Biden is voted out of office or b) inflation makes everything so expensive that beer is considered too pricey for government procurement contracts.
