This top Senate Republican believes Democrats “want” inflation and high gas prices

President Joe Biden’s failed leftist policies have turned America into an inflation nation.

Despite the President’s claim that bringing down inflation is his “top domestic priority,” his policy decisions, however, are telling a very different story.

So much so that this Senate Republican believes that inflation and high gas prices are the features, not the bugs, of the Democrats’ socialist agenda.

Recently, Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) went on Fox News’ America’s Newsroom and blasted Biden and his Democrat devotees for failing to take the necessary steps to boost American oil production.

Sen. Rubio said, “This has to do with the fact that we have far-left extremists inside of that White House who are sympathizers not just to the Cuban regime, but the one in Nicaragua, the one in Venezuela, obviously they sympathize with these people . . . They hated the sanctions and they just thought oil was a good excuse so they could get people to support them on. But this is nothing to do with oil because Venezuela can’t provide us oil. The oil that we need, we have, it’s in America. They need to allow us to explore it, and they’re not.”

The good Senator from Florida, however, was not finished roasting the radical Left for causing America’s pain at the gas pump.

He continued, saying “They’re telling banks not to fund these projects, they’re canceling leases, they’re waging war on fossil fuels, they’re waging war on oil and natural gas and it’s one of the reasons supply is not as high as it needs to be.”

After voicing these frustrations, and undoubtedly the frustrations of countless Americans, Senator Rubio floated his theory as to why Democrats may “want” energy prices to continue to skyrocket.

“I think there are people in the [Democrat] party that actually like it . . . They’re not gonna say it because they don’t want to get crushed in the next election although I believe they will be. But they like the fact that there’s inflation and high prices. They believe the more expensive oil and gas gets, the more people are gonna buy electric cars. Well, not everyone can afford an electric car right now, we don’t have enough electric cars, and the batteries for those electric cars are made in China. Look, these guys, they want this,” Senator Rubio said.

Say what you will about Sen. Marco Rubio, but he may be on to something here.

Ever since Joe Biden and the Democrats took control of Congress and the White House, they’ve done everything possible to make America more dependent on foreign oil, while simultaneously spending enough of our tax dollars to make Barack Obama blush.

And as if that wasn’t bad enough, almost every policy Biden champions involves spending even more money that we don’t have, which means we’ll either have to have the Federal Reserve print more of it and thus cause inflation to get even worse or borrow even more money from anti-American countries like China.

Admittedly, it is easy to see how Senator Rubio arrived at his albeit conspiratorial conclusion, especially when you look at the policies the Democrats have either enacted or tried to enact.

And just because an idea sounds crazy, doesn’t mean that it actually is.
