#SassyWithMassie: The greenest member of Congress schools Buttigieg in math, economics, and common sense.
Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg tried to convince Congress that he needs electric car subsidies for electric vehicles to help people like you and me at the pump:
“The more pain we are all experiencing from the high price of gas, the more benefit there is for those who can access electric vehicle,” Buttigieg said.
“So you’re saying the more pain we have, the more benefit we’re gonna get?” Rep. Carlos Gimenez, R-Fla., asked. “I think that’s what I heard you say.”
Buttigieg emphasized, “Of course – no, no, that’s what you heard me say. I know you want me to say it so bad but honestly, sir, what we’re saying is we could have no pain at all by making EVs cheaper for everyone.”
Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) dropped a common sense truth bomb on Buttigieg because um, what?! Math and economics from Massie:
“It would take four times as much electricity to charge the average household’s cars as the average household uses on air conditioning. Do you think that could be — so if we reach the goal by 2030 that Biden has, of a fifty percent adoption instead of one hundred percent adoption, that means the average household would use twice as much electricity charging one of their cars as they would use for all of the air conditioning that they use for the entire year.”
Imagine how much more we would pay for electricity if we all had to have electric cars. Now imagine how much more we would have to pay if they placed a tax on the electricity usage for the cars. Or they’ll tax you for the mileage you use.

If we blindly follow Joe Biden's impractical electric car policies, it will cause pain for middle class Americans. pic.twitter.com/GKUeaEq9UN

By the way, Massie probably knows more than Buttigieg when it comes to science and energy.
Massie is a legit genius with multiple degrees from MIT. He has a B.S.and M.S.degrees in electrical engineering. He also completed a master’s of science degree.
Massie has been living off the grid for years. Oh, yeah. He also uses the green energy the left loves to preach about.
We all don’t have Massie’s brains. If I could do this I would. But most of us cannot and Massie knows the left’s policies would affect us.
You should also watch Massie’s documentary about living off the grid.
I have issues with Massie, but saying “he hates new energy,” is dumb. He built his own off-grid system using solar panels, an old TSLA battery, and a Raspberry Pi. Also, I’m shocked that Buttigieg is tying his political future to the practicality of everyone buying BEVs. Moronic. https://t.co/J6l8kInuDB pic.twitter.com/9jstvWR6Bg
