Democrats Push Radical Gun Control Bills That Show They Are Not Serious About Preventing Tragedy

Rather than join House Republicans in combating the root causes of mass shootings, Democrats and President Biden are politicizing heartbreak in order to ram through a radical gun control agenda that will do nothing to prevent these tragedies from taking place again.

MAKE NO MISTAKE: House Republicans have actually passed legislation and have introduced solutions to harden schools, support mental health care, expand information sharing, and promote gun safety and training for law-abiding citizens to exercise their Second Amendment rights.

OPPOSE: H.R. 2377, THE “FEDERAL EXTREME RISK PROTECTION ORDER ACT OF 2021” (Courtesy of Judiciary Republicans):

Sponsor: Rep. Lucy McBath (D-GA)

  • This bill will eviscerate firearm owners’ due process rights. This bill destroys the presumption of innocence that is the bedrock of our criminal justice system. It does away with the notion that an individual is innocent until proven guilty, and instead, makes anyone subject to an extreme risk protection order guilty until proven innocent. An individual will have his or her firearms and ammunition confiscated without notice or the opportunity to be heard in court.

  • Federal law already prohibits dangerous and unfit individuals from purchasing or possessing firearms. An individual with a misdemeanor domestic violence conviction, an individual involuntarily committed to a mental institution or adjudicated “mentally defective,” or an individual who is an unlawful user of a controlled substance are all prohibited from possessing or purchasing a firearm.

  • The universe of individuals who can petition a court for an extreme risk protection order under this bill is too broad and creates a process that is ripe for abuse. The expansive list includes a law enforcement officer, parent, spouse, sibling, child, dating partner, roommate, domestic partner, and anyone with whom the individual lived for the past year. Any one of these individuals would be permitted to petition a court for an extreme risk protection order after overcoming the low evidentiary bar of “probable cause” for a federal order and “reasonable cause” for a state order. This bill will create an opportunity for a disgruntled ex-roommate, aggrieved domestic partner, or angry adult child to use the judicial system to harass and burden an individual by requiring law enforcement to seize the individual’s firearms and ammunition.

  • Studies suggest that this bill would not save lives or reduce crime. A study conducted by the Crime Prevention Research Center in 2018 found that “red flag laws had no significant effect on murder, suicide, the number of people killed in mass public shootings, robbery, aggravated assault, or burglary.” Furthermore, states have shown that many extreme risk protection orders have been overturned when the respondent finally has an opportunity to be heard.

OPPOSE: H.R. 7910, “PROTECTING OUR KIDS ACT” (Courtesy of Judiciary Republicans):

Sponsor: Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY)

  • H.R. 7910 contains unconstitutional restrictions on Americans’ rights. The Second Amendment protects the right of Americans to keep and bear arms, which includes the right to purchase them. However, H.R. 7910 would prohibit 18 to 20 year-olds from buying nearly all semiautomatic rifles and shotguns. The liberal 9th Circuit Court of Appeals recently struck down a similar California law as unconstitutional. The court found that using the heinous acts of a small number of individuals in a demographic class as a pretext for taking away the constitutional rights of all 18 to 20 year-olds would create “a malleable and meaningless limit on the government’s power to restrict constitutional rights.”

  • H.R. 7910 would fail to prevent gun violence or ensure the safety of all Americans. During Judiciary Committee consideration of this bill, Chairman Nadler conceded that the strict gun laws in liberal jurisdictions don’t work because criminals are able to obtain guns elsewhere. Rep. Steve Cohen admitted that the Democrats’ bill will make it harder for law-abiding Americans to exercise their Second Amendment rights. Committee Democrats even rejected a Republican amendment that would have ensured that victims of domestic violence can receive a firearm from a friend or neighbor to protect themselves.

  • H.R. 7910 is not a serious attempt to find solutions. This bill is focused only on the firearms used in a small number of crimes and not the broader problem of gun violence or what drives some individuals to commit these terrible acts. H.R. 7910 does nothing to address mental health or prevent the dozens of shootings that occur weekly in Democrat-run cities across America. If Democrats were serious about addressing gun violence they would engage in serious conversation about public safety instead of political theater.

Biden’s Energy Crisis is Only Getting Worse as He Doubles Down on His War on American Energy

Gas prices have officially DOUBLED since Joe Biden took office. The national average for a gallon of gas has risen every single day for over two weeks—up 25 cents in just the last week, and up a shocking 59 cents in the last month. Ten states now have average prices at or above $5 a gallon.

Americans are suffering this historic pain at the pump as President Biden continues to beg Saudi Arabia to boost the global supply of oil, stifles America’s domestic energy production by halting new lease sales, and depletes our Strategic Petroleum Reserve.

Sadly, this is Joe Biden’s America.

BIDEN’S ENERGY CRISIS BY THE NUMBERS:

  • Gas prices under Joe Biden have been historic.
  • The national average for a gallon of gas is $4.91 as of Tuesday.
    • This is another all-time high.
    • Diesel prices have skyrocketed 75% in just one year.
    • Economists are projecting that the average national retail price for a gallon of regular gasoline will surpass $6 a gallon by August.
  • A new report shows Americans will spend $5,000 this year on gas, a 78% increase from the $2,800 Americans spent a year ago.
  • President Biden has continued to recklessly deplete the Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR), which is meant for war or major weather events, for his political benefit. Now, the SPR is at its lowest point since 1987.
  • Americans are smart. They know this is Biden’s Price Hike – no one-else’s.

BIDEN’S ANTI-ENERGY AGENDA:

  • As this energy crisis surges, the Biden administration has continually passed the buck by blaming domestic energy producers:
    • Biden’s regulatory assault destroys ANY incentive for domestic energy producers to invest, and it worsens energy market volatility.
    • Most recently, Biden announced that his administration would no longer hold court-ordered offshore oil and gas lease sales in the Gulf of Mexico and Alaska.
  • On day one of Joe Biden’s presidency, he launched his war on American energy when he killed the Keystone XL pipeline, which could be supplying 830,000 thousand barrels of oil from Canada to U.S. refineries.
  • Recently, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) proposedextensive new rules that would require companies to disclose “climate-related risks” in an attempt to push Democrats’ environmental agenda through the inappropriate vehicle of securities law. This is a blatant move to starve American energy companies of capital and to publicly shame businesses not politically favored by Democrats.
  • In March 2020, President Trump directed the Department of Energy (DOE) to purchase 30 million barrels to begin filling the SPR.
  • Biden has now started the largest ever loan from our Strategic Petroleum Reserve of 180 million barrels of oil over six months.
    •  The SPR is meant for weather or national security emergencies, not political expediency.
    • This sale will deplete our Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) by 40% once the release is complete.
  • Biden has continued to beg dictators and other foreign adversaries for help easing prices.
    • Recently, Biden officials once again begged Saudi Arabia to help boost oil supply, doubling down on Biden’s anti-American energy agenda.

WHAT BIDEN SHOULD BE DOING: 

  1. End the federal freeze on oil and gas leases.
  2. Fast-track pending LNG export permits
  3. Expedite approval of all pipeline and energy development
  4. Stop the regulatory assault on U.S. energy development and financing

MAKE NO MISTAKE: Joe Biden and House Democrats’ war on American energy is responsible for the pain at the pump. Americans deserve efficient, affordable, and American-made energy, but this administration has chosen its Far-Left Green New Deal agenda instead. It’s time to unleash American energy dominance.

Pelosi’s Sham Jan 6th Committee Secretly Hired News Producer Who Covered Up for Jeffrey Epstein & Enabled His Disgusting Conduct

Nancy Pelosi’s illegitimate sham January 6th Committee secretly hired the former president of ABC News, James Goldston to be the secret producer for their shameless primetime hearings. This is the same producer who prevented the network from airing an interview with one of Jeffrey Epstein’s victims.

Axios reported this morning:

“James Goldston — former president of ABC News, and a master documentary storyteller who ran “Good Morning America” and “Nightline” — has joined the committee as an unannounced adviser…” 

In 2019, “Good Morning America” reporter Amy Robach was caught on a hot mic claiming network brass scrapped her interview with a Jeffrey Epstein accuser to appease the Royal Family.

Leader Kevin McCarthy sent a letter to Goldston following this revelation, demanding answers for why the interview was scrapped and alleging that the network and Goldston “enabled” Epstein to continue his illegal conduct by not airing the interview and blowing the whistle on his sex trafficking ring.

“I am deeply concerned that this victim, in search of justice, went to ABC News, provided information and an interview, and then ABC News chose to bury the truth. This was a decision that Ms. Robach alluded was due to protecting powerful people or financial interests,” McCarthy wrote.

The appointment of Goldston to Pelosi’s witch-hunt is just further proof that this is nothing more than a disgusting sham aimed at distracting the American people.

Pelosi and Democrats Try to Pass the Buck for Historic Gas Prices Caused by Their Own Far-Left Agenda

Today, the price for a gallon of gas hit an all-time high for the tenth consecutive day. Instead of offering real solutions to address this crisis, Speaker Pelosi and House Democrats are passing the buck and blaming oil and gas companies for America’s energy crisis, which their war on American energy created.

​​MAKE NO MISTAKE: House Democrats’ bill to punish oil and gas companies for skyrocketing gas prices by accusing them of price gouging does nothing to address the pain at the pump Americans are feeling daily. This bill will only make America’s energy crisis WORSE by price-fixing. Instead of helping to unleash American energy dominance, House Democrats continue to block House Republicans’ American Independence From Russia Act, showing they have NO intention of easing this pain at the pump for Americans.

THE FACTS ABOUT HOUSE DEMOCRATS’ SOCIALIST ENERGY PRICE FIXING ACT (Courtesy of House Energy and Commerce Republicans):

  • Gives President Biden power to declare an energy emergency, arming the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) with tools to impose de-facto, arbitrary caps on “Mom and Pop” gas stations for the price of fuels, such as gasoline, diesel, and propane.
  • Will lead to even less domestic oil and gas production at a time when we desperately need to increase both.
  • Attacks small businesses and retailers who have no control over rising energy prices and the Administration’s failures to fix supply chains.
  • Like in the 1970s, this will lead to fuel shortages and massive lines at the pump, affecting Americans’ ability to go to school, go to work, and live their lives. They are already suffering enough under the inflation, energy, and supply chain crises created by President Biden’s failed agenda for more government command and control.

BIDEN’S ENERGY CRISIS BY THE NUMBERS:

  • Americans are smart. They know this is Biden’s Price Hike – no one-else’s.
  • The national average for a gallon of gas is $4.58 as of Thursday.
    • This is the tenth record high for gas in a row – an all-time record.
  • Earlier this month, U.S. natural gas prices rose to the highest point in 13 years.
    • Crude oil is currently at $107.39.
    • Crude oil has remained above $90 a barrel, a 2014 record, for over three straight months.
    • Skyrocketing gas prices will now cost the average American household an extra $2,000 per year.

WHAT BIDEN SHOULD BE DOING: 

  1. End the federal freeze on new oil and gas leases.
  2. Fast-track pending LNG export permits
  3. Expedite approval of all pipeline and energy development
  4. Stop the regulatory assault on U.S. energy development and financing

Democrats’ Radical Abortion Agenda is Out of Step With the American People and an Outlier on the World Stage

As America awaits the final Supreme Court opinion for the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case, House Democrats held a hearing yesterday pushing their radical abortion until birth agenda. One witness, Dr. Yashica Robinson, could not even give an answer as to whether abortion up to the moment of birth should be legal or whether an unborn baby is a human being, even moments before birth. Another witness, Aimee Arrambide, answered affirmatively that men can have abortions.

THE FACTS ABOUT LIFE: 

  • An unborn child is a human life.
  • Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization is a case involving a Mississippi law that limits abortion after 15 weeks.
  • AT 6 WEEKS:
  • BY 10 WEEKS:
    • The unborn baby has arms and legs, fingers and toes.
    • The unborn baby is sucking his or her thumb.
    • The unborn baby can now sigh, stretch, move his or her head, mouth, and tongue.
    • The baby can kick and will jump if startled.
    • The unborn baby’s pain receptors have been developing for weeks (week 7).
  • BY 15 WEEKS:
    • All of the unborn baby’s major organs have formed.
    • The unborn baby has a fully developed heart that pumps 26 quarts of blood per day.
    • The unborn baby can feel pain.
    • Surgeries have been successfully performed on unborn babies at this age.

THE NUMBERS:

  • The U.S. is one of a small handful of nations, including China and North Korea, that allow late-term abortion on demand up to the moment of birth.
  • The American people overwhelmingly believe babies born alive should be protected.
  • According to a recent poll, 80% of Americans think abortion should be illegal in the third trimester.
  • According to a new Marist/Knights of Columbus poll, 61% of Americans say abortion should either be:
    • Illegal – 17%;
    • Left be up to the states – 44%.
  • The majority of Americans hold strong opposition to Congressional Democrats and the Biden administration’s support of taxpayer-funded abortions:
    • 58% oppose taxpayer dollars funding abortions in the U.S.
    • 77% oppose taxpayer dollars funding abortion in other countries.
    • 63% of Americans, including 42% of Democrats, oppose new federal rules that allow abortion pills to be sent through the mail without an in-person visit to a medical professional.
  • On the government forcing their radical agenda on Americans:
    • Three-quarters say healthcare professionals who have religious objections to abortion should not be forced to perform them.
    • 54% say organizations who have religious objections to abortion should not be legally required to provide insurance coverage for abortion.

MAKE NO MISTAKE: Far-Left Democrats will stop at nothing, including intimidating Supreme Court justices, to push an agenda that is wildly radical, out of step with the American people, and an outlier on the world stage.

Biden and Democrats Own America’s Crime Crisis

Following National Police Week, communities across this country are less safe, and our nation’s law enforcement are under attack from violent criminals due to the failed one-party rule of Democrats in Washington.

Now, ambush-style attacks on our police and homicides are up compared to this time in 2020.

DEMOCRATS’ CRIME CRISIS:

  • So far in 2022, homicide rates have increased 48% compared to this time in 2020, according to the Major Cities Chiefs Association.
  • Shootings of police officers have increased 38% compared to this time in 2020, according to the National Fraternal Order of Police.
    • 123 officers have been shot so far in 2022.
      • 19 of whom were killed, up 6% compared to 2020.
    • 39 officers have been shot in ambush-style attacks.
      • These attacks are up 56% compared to 2020.
  • According to a new ABC News/Washington Post poll of voters, Republicans beat Democrats by 12 points on handling crime, the highest in this poll’s 32-year history.
    • A Politico/Morning Consult poll shows 2 in 3 voters, 69% of Americans, think more police funding would decrease crime.
    • A new Ipsos poll also found that 64% of Americans disapprove of Biden’s handling of crime.
    • According to a new ABC/Washington Post poll, Americans trust Republicans more to handle crime.
  • Under President Biden, more police officers were killed in the line of duty in 2021 than in any year since 1995, excluding the September 11th terrorist attacks.
    • In 2021, 73 police officers were killed – a 59% increase from 2020.
  • In 2021, over a dozen U.S. cities set new homicide records.
  • In 2021, there were 346 officers shot, 63 of whom were killed by gunfire.
  • In 2021, there were 103 ambush-style attacks on law enforcement officers, a 115% increase from 2020.
  • Progressive prosecutors are in cities that represent over 20% of the nation’s population.

MAKE NO MISTAKE: President Biden and Congressional Democrats’ efforts to demonize and defund our law enforcement along with Democrats’ soft on crime policies are to blame for this crime crisis. House Republicans will always stand with and invest in our nation’s law enforcement. Americans deserve law and order.

Biden’s Border Crisis is the Worst in CBP History

Joe Biden and House Democrats’ open borders, mass releases, and zero enforcement policies have created the worst border crisis on CBP record. According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data, there were 234,088 illegal crossings of our southern border in April alone, the worst month in CBP history. This is a 30% increase from 2021 and OVER a 1,200% increase from 2020.

BIDEN’S BORDER CRISIS BY THE NUMBERS:

  • Since Biden took office, OVER 2.6 MILLION illegal immigrants have been apprehended at our southern border.
  • According to new CBP data, there were 234,088 migrant encounters at our southern border in April.
    • That’s the highest in U.S. history for one month.
    • That is up 30% from April 2021
    • That is a 1,268% increase from 2020.
    • 117,989 migrants were released into the U.S. in April.
    • 113,248 were expelled, the majority of which were under Title 42.
    • April was the 14th straight month of encounters OVER 150,000.
  • These staggering numbers come as the Biden administration plans to lift Title 42 in just one week, a decision that will only worsen the historic border crisis.
    • A federal judge temporarily blocked President Biden’s repeal of Title 42 last month and is expected to rule on the repeal any day.
    • According to a Morning Consults poll, the majority of Americans disapprove of Biden’s upcoming repeal of Title 42.
  • The Biden administration is putting America LAST by shipping pallets of baby formula to the southern border even as American families struggle with empty shelves.
  • 42 people on the Terrorist Screening Database have been apprehended attempting to illegally enter the U.S. since Joe Biden was sworn in.
  • A new report shows drug overdoses, mostly from opioids, hit an all-time high in 2021 of OVER 100,000.
    • To date, CBP has seized 340,000 pounds of drugs in FY22. This includes 5,300 pounds of fentanyl, enough to kill 2.4 billion people.
  • Border Patrol and Secretary Mayorkas have confirmed that over 700,000 known “got aways” have evaded CBP apprehension at the southern border since Biden took office.

BOTTOM LINE: This is an invasion. A country without secure borders is not a country. Border security IS national security.

The Biden Admin Refuses to Take Accountability for the Baby Formula Shortage

After months of delay, Joe Biden’s Federal Drug Administration has finally reached a deal to allow Abbott Nutrition to resume production of baby formula at its Sturgis, Michigan plant. According to the Associated Press, “it will be well over a month before any new products ship from the site to help alleviate the national shortage facing parents,” and still the White House doesn’t have a “timeline” for when baby formula will be back on shelves.

MAKE NO MISTAKE: Biden’s failure to address this crisis significantly contributed to the worsening baby formula shortage. House Republicans, however, have been urging this administration for months to address the crisis facing American families and babies. Now, it is too little, too late.

BIDEN’S BABY FORMULA CRISIS BY THE NUMBERS:

  • As of today, roughly 43% of the nation’s baby formula is out of stock.
  • As American babies and families suffer, the Biden administration isshipping pallets of baby formula to the southern border.
  • From November 2021 to May 2022, the percentage of out-of-stock baby formula jumped roughly 29 percentage points.
    • It jumped nine percentage points in just three weeks in April.
  • Iowa, South Dakota, North Dakota, Missouri, Texas and Tennessee had over half of their baby formula sold out for the week of April 24th.
  • Now, many popular stores are rationing formula for customers.
  • According to the FDA, roughly 67% of babies are fed at least partially through formula by three months old.
    • For many parents, these “elemental” formulas (e.g. similac) are a matter of survival of children. Those kids can’t process milk or soy proteins and need a broken-down formula.
  • The office of the U.S. Surgeon General states that families typically spend $1,200 to $1,500 on infant formula in the first year.
  • The baby formula shortage was worsened when the Federal Drug Administration shut down a critical facility in the infant formula supply chain in Sturgis, Michigan. As supplies dwindled in February, the Biden administration stood by and did nothing to avoid this crisis and prepare a plan to replace the missing supply.

Biden Ships Baby Formula to the Southern Border As American Mothers and Babies Suffer

As the historic Biden border crisis continues to worsen, a new report shows the Biden administration is putting America LAST by shipping pallets of baby formula to illegal immigrants at the southern border as American families struggle with empty shelves.

According to a Townhall report:

“Border Patrol agents have been instructed not to take baby formula home for their own children.”

Yesterday, when asked about this baby formula shortage, incoming White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre could not say who in the administration is running point on the crisis.

On the other hand, House Republicans gathered to once again urge the Biden administration to address the worsening baby formula shortage and hold them accountable for putting American families last.
BIDEN’S BORDER CRISIS BY THE NUMBERS:

  • According to new CBP data, there were 221,303 migrant encounters at our southern border in March.
    • That’s a new Biden-era high.
    • That is up 33% from February.
    • That is a 542% increase from 2020.
    • More than 7,000 migrants crossed the border per day, on average, in March.
    • March was the 13th straight month of encounters OVER 150,000.
    • Since Biden took office, OVER 2.4 MILLION illegal immigrants have been apprehended at our southern border.
  • These staggering numbers come as we learn that 42 people on the Terrorist Screening Database have been apprehended attempting to illegally enter the U.S. since Joe Biden was sworn in.
  • President Biden halted border wall construction, which Sec. Mayorkas has now confirmed, accumulated $72 million in shut-down costs.
  • The Biden administration plans to lift Title 42, a decision that will only worsen Biden’s Border Crisis.
    • A federal judge temporarily blocked President Biden’s repeal of Title 42 next month in yet another judicial rebuke of the president’s radical Far-Left agenda.
  • In 2021, the Biden administration dropped deportations by roughly 68%.

BIDEN’S BABY FORMULA CRISIS BY THE NUMBERS

  • President Biden and the FDA need to work directly with the manufacturers and hospitals to make sure we have an adequate supply of baby formula.
  • As of today, roughly 40% of the nation’s baby formula is out of stock.
  • From November 2021 to May 2022, the percentage of out-of-stock baby formula jumped roughly 29 percentage points.
    • It jumped nine percentage points in just three weeks in April.
  • Iowa, South Dakota, North Dakota, Missouri, Texas and Tennessee had over half of their baby formula sold out for the week of April 24th.
  • Now, many popular stores are rationing formula for customers.
  • According to the FDA, roughly 67% of babies are fed at least partially through formula by three months old.
    • For many parents, these “elemental” formulas (e.g. similac) are a matter of survival of children. Those kids can’t process milk or soy proteins and need a broken-down formula.
  • The office of the U.S. Surgeon General states that families typically spend $1,200 to $1,500 on infant formula in the first year.
  • This problem was worsened by a recall by Abbott Nutrition, which came after at least four babies were hospitalized with bacterial infections and two died after consuming powdered infant formula produced in its Sturgis, Michigan facility.

IT’S SIMPLE: President Biden would rather double down on his open-border policies than secure the border and ensure adequate resources for American families.

Biden’s War On American Made Energy Continues As Gas Prices Hit a New Record

On Wednesday, the U.S. Department of the Interior announced it would no longer hold court-ordered offshore oil and gas lease sales in the Gulf of Mexico and Alaska, totaling over 1 million acres. This move is the latest example of Biden’s Far-Left “Green New Deal” agenda.

Rather than unleash American energy, the White House has chosen to maintain our dependence on OPEC+ countries to meet our energy needs. The actions of the Biden administration have ensured that our sky-high gas prices are here to stay. Just today, the price for a gallon of gas hit yet another new record high of $4.41 a gallon, according to AAA.

BIDEN’S ENERGY CRISIS BY THE NUMBERS:

  • The national average for a gallon of gas is $4.41 as of Thursday.
  • This week, U.S. natural gas prices rose to the highest point in 13 years
    • Crude oil is currently at $115.48.
    • Gas prices under Biden’s failed leadership have been historic.
    • Crude oil has remained above $90 a barrel, a 2014 record, for over three straight months.
    • Skyrocketing gas prices will now cost the average American household an extra $2,000 per year.
  • Americans are smart. They know this is Biden’s Price Hike – no one-else’s.

BIDEN’S ANTI-ENERGY AGENDA:

  • As this energy crisis surges, the Biden administration has continually passed the buck by blaming domestic energy producers:
    • The White House’s favorite lie has centered on a claim that “9,000” approved federal leases for production are going “unused.”
    • This false framing ignores the continued regulatory assault the administration has placed on domestic energy production along with the needed time to find oil on permitted land and the proper infrastructure to transport the oil.
    • Biden’s regulatory assault also destroys ANY incentive for domestic energy producers to invest, and it worsens energy market volatility.
  • On day one of Joe Biden’s presidency, he launched his war on American energy when he killed the Keystone XL pipeline, which could be supplying 830,000 thousand barrels of oil from Canada to U.S. refineries.
  • Recently, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) proposedextensive new rules that would require companies to disclose “climate-related risks” in an attempt to push Democrats’ environmental agenda through the inappropriate vehicle of securities law. This is a blatant move to starve American energy companies of capital and to publicly shame businesses not politically favored by Democrats.
  • Biden has now announced the largest ever loan from our Strategic Petroleum Reserve of 180 million barrels of oil over six months. The SPR is meant for weather or national security emergencies, not political expediency.
    • Biden’s anti-energy is now jeopardizing our national security as he has now depleted our Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) by 40%—a level not seen since 1984.
  • Biden has continued to beg dictators and other foreign adversaries for help easing prices.

WHAT BIDEN SHOULD BE DOING: 

  1. End the federal freeze on new oil and gas leases.
  2. Fast-track pending LNG export permits
  3. Expedite approval of all pipeline and energy development
  4. Stop the regulatory assault on U.S. energy development and financing

BOTTOM LINE: This move is the latest example of Biden’s Far-Left “Green New Deal” agenda. Americans deserve efficient, affordable, and American-made energy.
