The ultra-leftist Biden Transportation Secretary, Pete Buttigieg, appears on ABC with George Stephanopoulos to discuss the solutions to the massive economic collapse that looms all around us. Within the interview Buttigieg states the Biden administration goal is to use the high cost of living (policy driven inflation) as an opportunity for the government to take over household expenses and create equity via government distribution.

If reasonable people do not intervene quickly, the executive branch and legislative branch will move to begin subsidizing and controlling medicine, childcare, housing and food costs by diverting tax dollars into the social equity system. Depending on income, the Biden administration plans to offset higher prices for Americans by providing the essential services and products they need. In essence, Democrat-Socialism with a filter of equity in distribution, ie “enhanced dependency.”

What a lot of political hot air:

Remarkably, Stephanopoulos references one of the most insane New York Times op-ed’s ever written around economics {ARTICLE HERE}. Within the reference, the Democrat legislative proposal is for the government to take over the purchasing of essential products like food, fuel, gasoline and medicine. The government would then distribute those products. The entire premise is based on some academic leftist theory of economics that is just nuts. It looks nothing like capitalism.
The baseline for the approach contains the premise that inflation is driven by too many people chasing scarce goods. Thus prices are rising. This is how the Democrats look at inflation and explain the problem. Their solution is for government to buy the food at the prices they claim people cannot afford, and then sell the food at prices they claim the people can afford. [Replace ‘food’ with any item they determine]
Notice in the interview when Buttigieg is challenged about the high cost of gasoline, he complains that oil companies are not drilling enough to generate the oil and refinery capacity that we need. Essentially, the oil companies are to blame for not creating more supply.
Now, pause, and think about that.
The same Pete Buttigieg voices strong opposition to any further exploitation of oil and natural gas. Buttigieg and the Biden administration vociferously advocate for green energy transition with extreme urgency and apply punitive punishment toward any opposition. Moments later, they are blaming the oil and gas industry for not providing enough supply….
…. Do you know what that advocacy conflict sounds like? That conflicted and twisted mental outlook is the psychology happening in abusive relationships. If you had made me a better sandwich, I wouldn’t have needed to punch you in the mouth. If the oil companies we restrict were doing the things we restrict them not to do, then things would be better.
Because the oil, gas, farms or (fill_in_the_blank) etc are not doing their jobs correctly – as to predict the damage caused by govt policy and offset the consequences – then government must take over the controls of the industry and manage the process. History rhymes…

Well, I guess many will be happy. They won't have to work, or worry about anything, so whats the big deal about waiting in line for hours and hours each day to get their alotted amount of food/clothing/gas/medicine etc.
Rationing is the inefficient distribution of goods and services by the government. They didn't learn shit from Obozocare, or the Jimmy Carter gas rationing days. We've already gotten Venezuelan-like shortages in grocery stores and a screwed up supply chain for other items. That's what shutting down the economy and printing Biden Bucks did for our economy. :mad:

They cannot even show up here with how Brandon is F'ing up this Country. Many told us from their side how much smarter they were than us. That sis not age very well.....CFA was the worst.
Maybe not the worst. (stiff competition out there for that crown) . But his voodoo economics based on bullshit data was laughable and fooled no one except BScuck. Sadly (per his screen name), he does this for a living. :oops:

I have no doubt he was a doctor, but was fully "indoctrinated" by woke bullshit including the CDC lies. Many MD's laughed at his bullshit sources.
I have no doubt that he has a medical degree, or that he works in hospitals, but that doesn't mean that he's 'REAL' doctor, but rather a money grubbing hypocritic oath doc-tor that's much more interested in his income that he is in his sick patients recovery. JMOHO's of course.... 😉

Yes, he took the more recent hypocritical oath for physicians when he was in Mexico during medical school.

So it’s not in the video with Buttplug, but in an article? What is the actual reference quoted?
There is a hyperlink in the article posted that references the NY Times op ed. (article here)
