Biden admin faces backlash for EV Promotion

The Biden administration is facing backlash for offering to pay Americans up to $5,000 to submit videos of themselves talking about their electric vehicles.

The program, which is part of the administration’s effort to promote the adoption of electric vehicles, has been widely criticized as being out of touch with reality and a waste of taxpayer money.

“This is beyond parody,” said Republican Sen. John Barrasso of Wyoming. “The Biden administration is so desperate to push its agenda that they’re willing to pay people to make propaganda videos.”

“This is a prime example of how out of touch this administration is with the American people,” said Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida. “Most Americans can’t afford an electric vehicle, and they certainly don’t need the government to pay them to make a video about it.”

The administration has defended the program, saying that it is a way to “amplify the voices of everyday Americans” who are driving electric vehicles.

“We want to hear from people who are actually using electric vehicles and how they’re benefiting from them,” said a White House spokesperson. “We believe that these videos will help to dispel myths and misconceptions about electric vehicles.”

But the administration’s critics say that the program is simply a way to waste taxpayer money and promote the administration’s agenda.

“This is nothing more than a taxpayer-funded PR stunt,” said Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas. “The Biden administration is using our tax dollars to try to convince people to buy electric vehicles, even though most Americans don’t want them.”

The program is open to anyone who owns or leases an electric vehicle. Participants must submit a video that is between 30 seconds and 2 minutes long. The videos must be about the participant’s experience with their electric vehicle.

The administration is also offering to pay people up to $1,000 to submit photos of their electric vehicles. The program has been met with widespread ridicule on social media.

“This is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever seen,” wrote one Twitter user. “The Biden administration is so out of touch with reality.”

“This is a waste of taxpayer money,” wrote another Twitter user. “There are so many better ways to spend our tax dollars.”

The program is set to run until the end of the year.
