Yesterday afternoon:

Rep. Jason Smith @RepJasonSmith
Biden is enjoying his weekend at the beach while Americans watch gas prices soar and pay more every week at the grocery store.

Some of the responses:

Maybe because the GOP voted against gas price gouging?

There’s that.

Well, you’re District has been plagued with crippling poverty for the entire time that you’ve “represented” it. Funny that you suddenly care about your constituents’ well-being. So you’ve been talking to your buddies in big oil- right?

It’s weird how Jason here and the @GOP scream how D’s are trying to make this a socialist country then believe the president controls free market prices.

How about when Trump was playing golf at Mar a Lago every weekend and thousands of Americans were dying of covid. How did you feel about that?

Did you ever complain about TFG golfing for over a complete year in his term? No? Why not?

That’s the cult.

Bad combover. Check. Too long red tie. Check. Orange spray tan. Check. Tiny hands. Check. Cluelessness. Check…

I’m enjoying my weekend at home while Republicans like you vote against every bill that will help Americans.

Would you have tweeted anything if he was playing golf at his own golf course?

How often are you in Congress in session and how often do you go home? Most people work during the week and take a break on the weekends…he’s no different. Plus he doesn’t control gas prices and you all voted no on price gouging so stuff it.

You aren’t worried about gas prices – you voted AGAINST doing anything about price gouging, remember? ( Spoiler – the VOTERS remember )

II went to the Cubs game today and enjoyed time with my family. Fortunately I still have time to remind you that gas price increases are global and you voted against helping Americans lower them.

Riding his bike and NOT driving a gas guzzler. I’m good with that. Congress sure takes a lot of time off, but I guess potus doesn’t even get the weekend. But keep tweeting. Super productive.

And what proposals have you made to provide relief?

Have you ever actually done anything for working class people and small businesses in your district, like your profile says? I doubt it.

He’s ready to sign the law stopping price gouging but you didn’t vote to pass it. What oil companies are you protesting this week?

Nah, I’m building a chicken coup.

I did fill my 25 gallon tank with $3.59/gas (after my points discount).

And I drive a behemoth truck. But I plan my trips & watch my $.

Are gas prices more important than our democracy? Nope.

Tell me how much time Trump spent at Mar-A-Lago again?

How did YOU vote on the price gouging bill??

Asked and answered.

You could have voted against price-gouging. Why didn’t you?

I am American and I filled my tank without undue anxiety, went grocery shopping and purchased same items As norm and live at the beach. I’m glad our President also takes time@to recharge on the weekends. Even happier that he isn’t also charging others to stay at his gaudy resorts

So I am ASSuming you working all weekend on a solution. I look forward to your report on Tuesday

Didn’t you vote no on the oil price gauging bill?

See above.

Do you prefer to be called by your full name “Mr. Clear and Present Danger” or do you have a nickname???

We see what you did there.

@GOP is like a broken record. Same thing over and over and over with zero progress. Stuck in the rut, stuck in the past. [….]Yawn[….]

Congress is only in session for about 172 days a year – how many days do YOU spend at home during that same year jaystun?

I dunno, he holds open public townhall meetings in the district, right? Just spitballing here…

Interesting that the former President was on the golf course just about every weekend but no complaints about that especially during a pandemic. How did you vote on bills that would have helped those that elected you?

And what exactly are you doing to help?

The grocery store I’m afraid to go to in case some maniac walks in with a assault weapon? That grocery store?

Actively voting NO on anything that could possibly help! You don’t support the working class w/culture wars, Smith.

What’s your solution to solving worldwide inflation this weekend?

Did you vote for the gas gouging bill?

No. See above.

Are you seriously sitting home and watching prices? I suspect most Americans are enjoying their weekend – certainly no obvious lack of vacationers in our area and no shortage of cars on the highway.
