Well the old gasbag, as well as a couple of other Democrat congressional economic geniuses have a progressive plan because you see the problem is greedy capitalist price gougers they say.
So because people across the country are "feeling the pinch at the gas pump, Congress needs to be doing all it can to bring down costs for American families." Stuff like price controls ya know. Did you know price-fixing is illegal unless Congress does it? I hear that they found that enumerate power somewhere in the Constitution.
Yup, but it's a little late to be concerned about the lowly proles after they unleashed the inflation Kraken on the land.

During her weekly press conference, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi unveiled the Democrats' latest plan to slow the surge in gas prices that is top of mind for Americans. Their solution is (drum roll please): price controls!

Having begged OPEC to pump more (and quietly asked the dastardly domestic fossil fuel crowd to help out), Democrats blew their wad on the largest SPR release in history... and achieved nothing, as gas prices reached a new record high...

Democratic Congresswomen Kim Schrier and Katie Porter have introduced the 'Consumer Fuel Price Gouging Prevention Act' that will give the President the power to issue an Energy Emergency Declaration that would make it unlawful to increase gasoline and home energy fuel prices in an excessive or exploitative manner.

Do you think these lizard people know about the results of Nixon price controls in the early 70's? Probably not.

Energy Infamy: Nixon’s 1971 Price Controls Turn 50

Robert L. Bradley Jr. – August 14, 2021

Quote:
August 15, 1971, forever lives in energy infamy. President Nixon’s 90-day price freeze, as extended, disabled the impersonal market forces coordinating supply and demand. Petroleum shortages began the next year, and the industry was fast-tracked to allocation controls and a suite of government programs to increase supply or reduce demand (“gapism”).

My choice early in life was between whether to be a piano player in a whorehouse or a politician. And to tell the truth, there’s hardly any difference.

Blasphemous Nancy...

Pelosi: "When you're home thinking about [what $40 billion to Ukraine] is all about, just think about 'when I was hungry, you fed me' from the Gospel of Matthew."
