On Thursday, Congressman Ro Khanna held a hearing in which he proposed ending subsidies for the oil and gas industry. This is in agreement with President Biden's plans on climate change.
Of course, Republicans are horrified. Mah precious oil and gas subsidies!
And one Republican wanted folks to know how important oil is to every beneficial product, including...panty hose.
Representative Yvette Harrell (New Mexico, guess which party) said that without fossil fuels, we wouldn't have the plastic to make our computers, eyeglasses, and also pantyhose.
Maddow's show tweeted, "Won't someone please think of the panty hose?"
