    On Monday, White House Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre could not name anything that President Joe Biden was considering doing to help alleviate rising fuel prices across the country.

    A reporter asked Jean-Pierre what else the administration could do "besides tapping the Strategic Petroleum Reserve" to combat rising gas prices.

    "You know, we have - we don't have an announcement yet on anything - anything to share at this time," she responded. "You know, but we're monitoring it. Right? We're monitoring the prices and we're making sure that we have tools in our toolbelts that we can - we can - we can try and use. But at this time, I don't have anything new to share."

    "But just what else are you reviewing?" the reporter pressed. "Because [Energy] Secretary [Jennifer] Granholm has confirmed that is an option that's on the table, and the President has said there are other tools that you could potentially use. So, could you just lay out what those other options are that he's considering?"

    "So I don't - again, I don't - I don't have anything specific here," she responded. "The President spoke to this recently. But he's also asked the FTC (Federal Trade Commission) to crack down on illegal pricing. Right? That is one thing that he did on gouging in the market. And the FTC is responding. But, also, we're going to continue to monitor the situation and have a number of tools in our arsenal. As I just mentioned, I don't have anything specific."

    TRANSCRIPT PROVIDED VIA THE WHITE HOUSE:

    REPORTER: And on what Secretary Granholm and what she was saying yesterday, what options, besides tapping the Strategic Petroleum Reserve, does the President have to counteract higher gas prices?

    KARINE JEAN-PIERRE, DEPUTY PRESS SECRETARY: So, you know, we've - I've talked about this a couple of times. You know, we have - we don't have an announcement yet on anything - anything to share at this time. You know, but we're monitoring it. Right? We're monitoring the prices and we're making sure that we have tools in our toolbelts that we can - we can - we can try and use. But at this time, I don't have anything new to share.

    REPORTER: But just what else are you reviewing? Because Secretary Granholm has confirmed that is an option that's on the table, and the President has said there are other tools that you could potentially use. So, could you just lay out what those other options are that he's considering?

Inarguably, the policies of the Democrats in congress and Joe Biden as the Executive is plunging the United States into a recession, if we are not already there; a recession that was completely avoidable. Will abrupt changes in policies occur in time?
  Yes, the Democrats have a bold plan yet to be revealed to save us.
  No, there will have to be a complete undoing of the damage done by these Democrats.
  I can't do simple math, so how am I to understand the concept of basic economics.
