House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is also in denial and is publicly under the impression that Americans do not blame Democrats for high prices, either.
“No. I don’t think the public is blaming Democrats. I think they’re blaming oil companies. They will blame all of us if we don’t do something about the fossil fuel industry,” Pelosi told a reporter, later acting mystified when presented with the scenario of Americans holding Democrats accountable in the midterms.
If “the Republicans are standing in the way” of the plan to “free the consumer of the stranglehold of big oil, you think they’re going to blame that on a Democrat?” she asked.
Despite their claims, survey after survey show that Americans blame Democrats and Biden for high gas prices and rampant inflation.
However, the left’s line of logic coincides with reports of Biden planning to dodge these looming issues by placing blame on Republicans, rather than admit that his policies — including shutting down American energy independence and continuing to print trillions and trillions of dollars — has led to the current state of affairs.
Under Biden’s leadership thus far, gas prices have reached record-high levels, inflation hit a 40-year high, and the U.S. Gross Domestic Product (GDP) shrunk 1.4 percent in the first quarter of 2022.
