You Have To Be A Wealthy, Partially-Deaf, Green Energy Fanatic To Save Money In Biden’s America | Eastern North Carolina Now | In 2009, then-Vice President Joe Biden told the nation the federal government had to spend money to keep from going bankrupt.

    In 2009, then-Vice President Joe Biden told the nation the federal government had to spend money to keep from going bankrupt.

    In 2022, the Biden administration is now saying that the American consumer has to follow that exact same strategy to avoid inflationary woes.

    It is pretty bad advice, made even worse by the fact that Democrats are saying Americans should spend thousands of dollars on "weatherized homes," electric vehicles, and even hearing aids to reap the benefits of Bidenomics.

    For example, on Sunday, CNN's Dana Bash asked White House economic advisor Cecilia Rouse when Americans could expect the billion-dollar boondoggle that is the "Inflation Reduction Act," to actually reduce inflation.

    The inflation rate reached 8.2% in September. Thirty-six percent of Americans are tapping into their savings just to survive. The state of the economy, according to most Americans, is worsening. So, what was Rouse's answer?

    According to Rouse, Americans can start saving money in 2023 ... so long as they buy new and improved efficient windows and other green energy expenditures for their homes.

    Watch here:


    Biden's Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm has also bragged about that tax credit. In short, you have to spend thousands to save hundreds.

    For example, the average energy-efficient window pane costs anywhere from $325 to $1,110, according to Modernize, a home services website. That price range is per window - not for the entire home. Using the lowest estimate available, if you had four windows in your home, you'd need to spend at least $1,300 before any labor or delivery costs are even calculated into it.

    If you did that, you would get a $390 tax credit. Four home windows are hard to come by, so it's likely you'd spend a lot more than that.

    On Monday, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said that the White House "understands" that costs are burdening American families. That is why Biden signed an executive order speeding up the availability of over-the-counter hearing aids, she claimed.

    Huh?

    For those who need it, over-the-counter hearing aids will be cheaper. That is great news.

    There are just two problems with the White House's boast.

    The first is that not every American needs a hearing aid (obviously).

    The second is that Biden wasn't exactly the brainchild behind that policy.

    In 2017, then-President Donald J. Trump signed a bipartisan law that deregulated hearing aids. The implementation was slowed down due to the pandemic as the Food and Drug Administration shifted manpower to COVID-related needs. Biden dragged it over the finish line.

    Of course, if "deregulation" is the key to bringing down the costs of products, why aren't Americans seeing deregulation in the oil and gas industry?

    Well, the answer is that the Biden administration is intent on forcing Americans into buying electric vehicles.

    Long before the war in Ukraine began - which Democrats blame for practically every problem under the sun - America was dealing with high gas prices.

    Shortly after returning from a three-month parental leave, Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg told American families in November 2021 that they'll "never have to worry about gas prices again" if they buy an EV.

    Granholm, Biden, and Buttigieg have repeated similar variations of that line for the past year.

    The usual suspects neglect to mention that the average EV has a gigantic price tag.

    According to Kelley Blue Book, in September of 2022, the average electric car price was $65,291.

    Aside from hearing aids - which fewer than 30 million Americans need - none of these examples of how to save money are fixed costs.

    You need to - as mentioned - spend lots of money to save money.

    So if you are a wealthy hard-of-hearing American looking to buy a new car and upgrade your entire home, you might find this all to be welcomed news.

    If not, tough luck schmuck.

It has been far too many years since the Woke theology interlaced its canons within the fabric of the Indoctrination Realm, so it is nigh time to ask: Does this Representative Republic continue, as a functioning society of a self-governed people, by contending with the unusual, self absorbed dictates of the Woke, and their vast array of Victimhood scenarios?
  Yes, the Religion of Woke must continue; there are so many groups of underprivileged, underserved, a direct result of unrelenting Inequity; they deserve everything.
  No; the Woke fools must be toppled from their self-anointed pedestal; a functioning society of a good Constitutional people cannot withstand this level of "existential" favoritism as it exists now.
  I just observe; with this thoughtful observation: What will happen "when the Vikings are breeching our walls;" how do the Woke react?

Should Beaufort County's commissioners be resolved to ask the federal government to defend our Southern Border by ending the Biden /Harris Open Border policy in regards to that one border that is intentionally made wide OPEN?
  Yes, Illegal Migrants are a huge expense to local governments.
  No, the cost of Undocumented Immigrants is insignificant in our providing a pathway for Dramatic Demographic Upheaval..
  I do not care about important issues since I only consider my own pleasures.
