Obviously, Senator Debbie Stabenow and her fellow Democrats are either ignorant or in denial that without coal, oil and natural gas there is not sufficient energy to power America. This of course includes electric cars. Windmills and solar power used alone as we have seen in California, results in high energy prices and annual rolling blackouts as the state intentionally weens citizens off oil.
Delusional Michigan Democrat Senator Debbie Stabenow doesn’t care. She’s got hers. Or so she falsely believes. Stabenow told the Senate on Tuesday that it doesn’t matter to her how high gas prices rise because she can afford to drive an electric vehicle. In 2021, Stabenow’s net worth was reported at $300,000. American senators’ annual salary is about $174,000 while the average income of a Michigan household is $59,234 between 2016-2020, which is way less than what senators are making.
“On the issue of 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 and it didn’t matter how high it was. I’m looking forward to the opportunity for us to move to vehicles that aren’t going to be dependent on the whims of the oil companies and the international markets,” Stabenow said.
Aside from the fact that most Americans cannot afford $50,000 to buy electric vehicles, windmills and solar energy is still not sufficient to power the electrical grid. This of course includes electric cars.
What fools. Well, they say ignorance is bliss.
