Ferguson parroting GOP talking points

On July 6, our Congressman Drew Ferguson sent out an email message that claimed Americans spent more for gas over the July Fourth holiday because of "President Biden's failed policies."

According to an Associated Press story from May 26, this is a lie from GOP House leadership. The article explains that, "Gas prices are up because of a rapid and unexpected bounce-back in demand, and because of lingering problems from the forced shutdown early this month of the Colonial Pipeline."

This isn't the first time Rep. Ferguson has parroted GOP talking points without regard to truth. I wish he would be honest with us instead of passing out propaganda.
