Another gaffe by Joe Biden, this is after he overpromised Americans and told them on Thursday that they can expect savings of $500 a month by transitioning to renewable energy.

According to the New York Post report, Biden said, “If your home is powered by safer, cheaper, cleaner electricity, like solar or heat pumps, you can save about $500 a month on average.”

And again, the White House is now cleaning another mess that Joe has created but this time the White House could not ignore it. As a result, the official transcription of the speech had to be altered.

This may be just a one-word but when it comes to money it does represents a large amount.

White House then crossed out the word “month” and added the word “year” in brackets.

The ABC news report said:

The average electric bill for homeowners was $115 per month in 2019, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. Between 2009 and 2019, the average monthly electric bill for a U.S. homeowner never surpassed $120.

In a statement released to support his order Thursday, the White House predicted his energy plan would save people “$500 a year from using clean electricity like solar and heat pumps to power their homes.”

Earlier this year Biden himself promised to save “families an average of $500 a year by combatting climate change.” But in an apparent fumble, he cast the savings this time as monthly.

The New York post also added:

Biden was also criticized on social media for announcing that if his plan is OK’d by lawmakers, “we can take advantage of the next generation of electric vehicles [so] that a typical driver will save about $80 a month from not having to pay gas at the pump.”

The president did not mention that according to Kelly Blue Book, the average price of a new electric vehicle in February was $64,685 — nearly 2.5 times the average price of a new compact car ($26,196), almost twice the average cost of a new compact SUV ($33,732), and 52% more expensive than the average sports car ($42,555).

Fourteen months into the Biden administration, the White House has gotten into the habit of correcting misstatements and verbal slip-ups by the president.
