President Joe Biden is taking fresh steps to help keep gas prices from climbing. For Republicans to see this as “disgusting” and “disgraceful” is bizarre.

They’re better at fake outrage than we are at actual outrage.

Remember when they did climb and republicans stuck little "I did that" stickers on the pumps?

Should be taxing the shit out of it anyway to snap the US from it's petrol addiction.

The same reason Republicans voted against their own immigration bill: Trump told them not to because he doesn't want to give that win to Biden. No wins for Biden, especially in an election year. Republicans continue holding us hostage so they can to put their fuhr back in office.

What are you smoking MSNBC? Vocally opposing Democrats on literally everything, even when it doesn't make sense or contradicts party positions, is 100% on-brand for the Republican party.

Do some opposition research someday, goddamnit.

1M barrels of gasoline is about 90 minutes of national usage. Its not even a blip on the radar of gas prices. It will affect prices by approximately nothing.

While it may be a bad thing in the long run, gettingthat reaction from the enemy is still worth it

I pass a dipshits house that house many flags on it, and ha had signs in his front yard about how Biden is responsible for gas prices being so high for years now. He took the signs down. It makes me laugh.
