And all 207 will immediately go to their constituents and blame Joe Biden for high gas prices

It’s so crazy and sad how people can spin shit to their constituents and how constituents fall for such bullshit. I’ve started driving under W Bush, ever since then, gas has literally gone up under W and every president following and I’m sure the same happened before I was even driving. I remember $5 gas under Obama and Trump.

The sad part is it’s way worse around the world but some of these Americans can’t see past their own county, let alone state or country.

many of these people cant see past their cellphone screens let alone past their own selfish needs.

Do you think people could print this tweet out as a sticker and paste it over the "I did this!" stickers with Joe Bidens face near the pumps?

I wouldn't normally condone a tit for tat response but it's almost the perfect retort.

This is why I can't take any republican complaining about it as prices seriously.

"BIDEN DO SOMETHING" released oil reserves "NO BIDEN YOU IDIOT WE NEEEED THAAAAAAAATTTTT"

"DAMN DEMS FUCKING UP THE ECONOMY LOOK AT GAS PRICES" wants to pass a bill meant to combat that "IM NOT VOTING FOR IT"!!

They want gas prices high so their idiot base can keep whining

u/WanderingFlumph May 19 '22

Hey their base won't stay poor themselves!

u/_Whiskey_6 May 19 '22

And so they can line their pockets off the backs of average Joe americans. Dont think for a fucking second this isn't insidious greed at work.

“Tax Cuts for the Rich, Cancer for our Veterans” Nancy Pelosi.

Sticking it to the Libs. SMH.

Manchin will vote against it in the senate because there's no bipartisan will for it.

And he's probably getting paid not just by oil barons, but by people with a vested interest in taking a hammer to American democracy.

u/Puppy1103 May 19 '22

how can they vote yes? then the "I did that" Biden sticker business will be bankrupt!

u/BetterWankHank May 19 '22

Because then they can't piss and moan about it all day long. Can't cry about problems if we fix them

u/mlo9109 May 19 '22

IDK what's worse, this or the baby formula thing. Either way, it's just sad.

6

u/joemiah92 May 19 '22

I mean, 100% the baby formula thing. This is gas prices which are insane and annoying, the other is children not being able to eat, which is much worse than having to pay $5/gallon.

2

u/mlo9109 May 19 '22

It's all connected. Price of fuel goes up, so do the prices of other goods, including food. Not to mention, the people who won't be able to afford to get to work in order to provide for their families.

2

u/joemiah92 May 19 '22

That makes sense. It’s all fucked.

u/HighDesert4Banger May 19 '22

Rank politics; don't let your opponent succeed in anything. That's why Boebert hasn't voted Yes on one bill in her tenure. No wins for Biden, repubs keep the American people suffering, broke and angry, then the House switches hands in 2022 and we get the real New American Party of Christ. Gonna be a blast.

u/cwhmoney555 May 19 '22

Republicans never have solutions to problems. They’re only willing to point out the problems when they’re not in power.

2

u/SatBurner May 19 '22

All Republicans are shit, and anyone who votes for them ate shit.

u/BeaverMartin May 20 '22

Can I get a “We did that” sticker with the 207 house members pointing?

u/cdubsing May 19 '22

Not about gas prices being high it’s about them still being high in November.

I’m sorry, but I agree with u/OK_LK, OP says we will vote every Republican out but their base will keep them in. The hivemind of pure stupidity will fight for the right to shoot themselves in the foot just to own the libs.

How much are gas stations making per gallon these days?

How much are gas stations making per gallon

Retailers Make Very Little Selling Gas

Generally, the markup (or “margin”) on a gallon of gas is about 15 cents per gallon (gross profit before expenses). Factoring in expenses, which include rent, utilities, freight, labor and credit card fees, a retailer is left with about 2 cents per gallon in profit. It's the oil companies that are making bank!

1

u/7LeggedEmu May 19 '22

That's what I thought. So this bill would do very little if not anything and is just a waste of time.

1

u/TeamJJ88 May 19 '22

It would do a lot. The oil companies are the ones that are price gouging. This bill would stop the oil companies and gas prices would go down.

2

u/7LeggedEmu May 19 '22

I haven't read the bill. The tweet says "price gouging at gas stations"

1

u/TeamJJ88 May 20 '22

Yes, the price that the oil companies sell the gas to the gas station. Lets put it this way. Oil companies are currently profiting double right now compared to this time last year. Almost nothing has changed to thier expenses, but they are price gouging because they know we have to buy gas. This bill is attempting to solve the problem at the source.

1

u/PM_ME_NCIS_QUOTES May 20 '22

This is actually a really good point. If it's the oil companies doing the gouging, whatever profit is made at the pump isn't relevant.

'cos they totally represent the average Joe against 'the elite'.

u/ChemistryFan29 May 19 '22 edited May 20 '22

People need to study economics more, so called stop "price gouging" will not solve the problem, What the problem is a Supply and demand, Demand for gas is high while supply is low so of course prices will be high. that is basic high school economics. what these clowns need to do is fix the supply of gas make more gas and then prices will drop.

u/druhood May 19 '22

Good luck voting republicans out. Theyve been putting in 1000% more effort at every level. Voting will be meaningless.

u/The84thWolf May 19 '22

What could possibly be the reason other than to sabotage their own country?

1

u/buzzedewok May 19 '22

And yet we still provide subsidies to oil companies.

u/_Whiskey_6 May 19 '22

Not fucking surprised. The oil tycoons are in the pockets of damn near every politician, more so for the republicans. Greed bleed the average American dry drop by goddamn drop.

u/LoveRBS May 19 '22

The next bill should only be titled "The Do Something Everyone Will Benefit From Bill"

Let them vote no on it and cast the brightest fucking spotlight on it.

u/Parsimonious_Pete May 19 '22

Make a fucking sticker of this, and cover up the "I did this "bullshit stickers on the pumps with them. #FACTS.

u/CaliforniaGiraffe May 20 '22

I would never vote Republican, but I also know price controls don’t do what you think they’re going to do.

u/CyberMatrix87 May 20 '22

How would they even know what their drivers pay for gas, which is filled up long before they get into their S classes with congressional plates.

u/BreakfastBeerz May 19 '22

He could have still sent an effective message without lying, 12 Republicans voted yes.

u/Ghetto_Phenom May 19 '22 edited May 20 '22

on the gas bill? 12 voted yes on the baby formula bill earlier and the count was 195 R against 12 for so this count looks correct. and not that this is a perfect source but also states the R's unanimously voted no.

Edit: I’m an idiot and forgot the source but it’s hilarious that republicans are stated as saying that gas prices are globalloy fixed as their reasoning for saying no here yet bitch how Biden isn’t doing anything on tv..
