Uppity Democrat Senator Says Gas Prices Don’t Matter

U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-MI)

(TheLastPatriotNews.com) – Every poll in recent history shows that an overwhelming majority of Americans believe that most elected officials on the national stage cannot relate to what the average hardworking American is experiencing in their hometown.

During a recent United States Senate committee hearing, United States Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) just reinforced those beliefs with the remarks she made.

As Breitbart News recounts Stabenow’s words in “Democrat Senator Says Gas Prices Don’t ‘Matter’ to Her as Millions Impacted by Record-High Prices”:

“Democrat Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) said that gas prices “didn’t matter” to her because she drives an electric vehicle while millions of Americans feel the financial burden of record-high gas prices.

“Stabenow’s remarks came during Tuesday’s Senate Finance Committee hearing about President Joe Biden’s fiscal year 2023 budget.” [emphasis added]

Specifically, Stabenow stated:

“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 [the price per gallon] 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.” [emphasis added]

One political pundit in the hearing room noted, “Stabenow couldn’t be more out of touch with her constituents — with all Americans — if she tried.”
