If the congressional idiots want me to believe they can pull off this magic, first explain why US citizens pay the highest drug prices in the world and actually do something about it, instead of making lame (lying) excuses!

The government makes more money off a gallon of gas than the oil companies. Red china joe lies.

Nixon tried that in 1970 with disastrous results. Everything these marxists do turns to dog poop.They refuse to let the free markets work and cut off our vast pools of domestic oil.. So a marxist bill to let the braindead potato reduce prices will result in oil companies going broke or stopping the production of gasoline and diesel. Eco 101 nancy.. communism FAILS 100% of the time throughout history… as does socialism’s

Socialism and communism in conjunction with fiat currencies work 100% of the time to destroy governments and cultures thus the reason they are relentlessly applied as has occurred in America.
We have amassed irreconcilable debt of $33 T $5T of which covid rationaled for the very purpose of crashing formally our economy for hand over of word dominance to China.
Notwithstanding reconciling our eagreasous debt wee must accept America’s termination; it’s the money and in the cards; sadly..

A little history will show that price controls will only make matters worse. Hello lines.

I am SO fatigued with the ancient, “geedy oil company” meme that’s been trotted out by leftists for decades…. The actual REASON for the SUBSTANTIAL inflation we have now is that biden has already been using executive orders that impact supply of oil indirectly, increasing price. If he’s given DIRECT control of price, to put a ceiling on it, he will absolutely destroy supply by dictating the price, guaranteeing the shortages will be FAR worse, and oil SUPPLY will plummet from where it is now. That would be SO special…biden decrees oil at $25/bbl, but will drive oil companies out… Read more »

This is the example I give when someone touts “price controls”:
I own a bakery. The government says that I can sell my cupcakes for no more than 50¢. It costs me 75¢ to make a cupcake. How many cupcakes do you think I will make?

How does this, on any measure, sound like a good idea? It’s unlikely Biden can control his own blatter much less successfully control gas prices. The speaker, all Dem/Socialists in general, want control of everything. That is what socialists do.

Controlling gas prices will translate to shortages and rationing; the intent.

We’re being set up for the rationing of gas, water, electrical power, food, medical attention, access to cash and your freedom to roam at will..
