Over 10 million American jobs are supported by the oil and gas industry, a ban of fracking would eliminate 19 million jobs by 2025 and reduce U.S. GDP by $7.1T according to one study, and families’ energy bills would spike by as much as $3,900 per year if the practice was outlawed.
The Vice President and other Democrats are now attempting to mislead the American people about where they stand on this issue, but their past comments cannot be forgotten and there’s no question that they will pursue policies that would devastate the nation.
