With rising inflation and exploding gas prices stretching family budgets to the breaking point, President Joe Biden’s top economic adviser is out with a stunning admission.

Democrats want prices to be even higher, to stop Americans from using gasoline.


“We know that when we’re consuming fossil fuels we’re not paying nearly the cost that is generating from the social perspective,” said Chair of the Council of Economic Advisers Cecilia Rouse said in a White House videoconference demanding more government action on the “climate change” conspiracy theory.

“The private costs I pay even at the pump is not reflecting the social cost of the emissions from my car,” Rouse concluded.

The White House’s comments are supportive of a liberal movement to slap crippling new taxes on gasoline, which would stop Americans from using automobiles and provide government with millions of new dollars to funnel to liberal activists.

The scheme adheres to a liberal conspiracy theory that the Earth is warming, it is caused by human action, Americans are primarily responsible and the Earth’s temperature can be changed by adopting socialist policies.

They claim there is a “social cost” of using petrochemicals, and that Americans should be forced by the government to pay higher prices to stop them from using gasoline, natural gas and heating oil.

A 2014 U.S. House investigation found many of the liberal groups pushing for “social cost” price hike on oil and gas got funding from the Russian government, funneled to “dark money” environmental groups through an off-shore corporation in Bermuda which received “tens of millions of dollars” from the Kremlin.

“Just buy an electric car” is the 21st-century American equivalent of “let them eat cake.”
