The Biden administration’s tone deafness and lack of comprehension of the lives of ordinary Americans who aren’t millionaires is one of its defining characteristics.

What’s worse is that they are completely unaware of how foolish their statements are.

Consider Jennifer Granholm, Biden’s own energy secretary. To help Americans cut their electricity costs, she made one of the worst suggestions.

“If you are low income, you can get your home entirely weatherized through the expansion from the bipartisan infrastructure laws, a significant expansion — you don’t have to pay for anything,” she said, adding, “If you want heat pumps, insulation, new windows, that is covered,” she said. “If you are moderate income, today you can get 30% off the price of solar panels. Those solar panels can be financed, so you don’t have to have the big outlay at the front … If you don’t qualify for the weatherization program, you will be able to, starting next year, get rebates on the appliances and equipment that will help you reduce your monthly energy bill by up to 30%. That is all about reducing costs for people.”

If you’re poor, go spend $10,000 on solar panels! That’s the solution!

They are SO out of touch. Lower income individuals do not have thousands of dollars to spend on solar panels. Most of them are struggling for groceries, but they want them to spend 10 times that amount on some solar panels that will pay off in 5-10 years? C’mon man!

Twitter ripped into Granholm:

Look, I make a decent amount of money, and I don’t even have an extra $10,000 that I could spend on solar panels for my home. These people need to be removed from their high places and the rest of Americans need to wake up and stop voting for these incompetent imbeciles.

  • Biden loaded up his administration with hysterical imbeciles like Jennifer Granholm. He was trying to find subordinates more ridiculous than himself.

  • Let them eat cake! Wah, but Forest gump is right, stupid is as stupid does. I don’t know what she’s been smoking but she needs to share so we all can just sit around nodding and drooling singing that old dem favorite, Mammy.

  • So, it will take 10 years to pay off a loan for solar panels (not to mention shoring up your roof to handle the extra weight which is considerable) then you do it all over again because THE LIFE EXPECTANCY FOR A SOLAR PANEL IS 10YRS, if your lucky.. Also, the panels and batteries are NOT reusable, rechargeable and extremely dangerous to the atmosphere and our health.
    No thanks. I’ll keep my gas furnace, water heater and dryer.

  • Biden’s Energy Sec. is as STUPID as he is ! She’s as Brain Dead as Everyone in Biden’s FAKE and PARASITE Infested Administration.

  • ALL SHE WOULD NEED TO DO IS GET THE OIL PATCH BACK TO SEARCHING , DRILLING PUMPING AND SELLING WHAT WE DONT NEED TO OUR FRIENDLY COUNTRIES. SO GIVE THE INDUSTRY A GUARANTEED 10 YRS OR SO TIME FOR THE INDUSTRY TO WORK WITHOUT BEING STOPPED AND WE CAN FOR INSTANCE SUPPLY, A GREEN PRODUCT IN EUROPE, NATURAL GAS WHICH WOULD SAVE THEM AND STYMIE OUR ENEMIES WE HAVE MORE THAN ANYONE ELSE.

  • Biden’s energy policies have jacked-up the cost NOW.
    I’d like to see Granholm’s calculations about how her recommendation to spend even more money helps someone who cannot afford Biden’s energy prices NOW.

  • That piece of work is Stupid.Like all Democrats she thinks the voters are stupid too.The stupid category belongs to her.

  • Weatherization is open to those whose income is 200% or below the Federal Poverty Income Level as defined by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. For example, a single person living alone cannot make more than $27,180 and a family of four cannot make more than $55,500.

    Most of those folks are rentals. we are looking at a small cohort band of elderly or very poor. plus if it is coming through DOE most of those units have been completed. in 1980 there was a switch from the Community Services Administration (CSA) to newly established DOE. there may be a “duplication of benefits ” if DOE is the grant provider.
