Nancy Pelosi’s time running the House could be winding down.
Pelosi is hellbent on doing as much damage as she can with the time she has left.
And Nancy Pelosi just crushed consumers with this infuriating move that puts America last.
America is in the grips of its biggest energy crisis since the Jimmy Carter era.
Joe Biden ran on imprisoning oil company executives and ending fossil fuels.
On his first day in office, Biden shut down the Keystone XL Pipeline and froze drilling permits for oil on federal land.
Oil companies have been threatened with crippling regulations from Green New Deal policies that Democrats have been desperately trying to ram through Congress.
With Russian oil imports being banned as a result of the Russia-Ukraine conflict, gas prices have hit all-time highs.
Russian oil imports doubled under Biden’s war on American energy.
With the loss of Russian oil, the Biden regime is scrambling to find a replacement.
Texas congressman Dan Crenshaw came up with a common-sense solution to high gas prices, introducing a bill to unleash the power of American energy.
The American Energy Independence from Russia Act would undo Biden’s crippling moves against American energy.
The bill would reapprove the Keystone XL Pipeline, remove regulations on the export of American natural gas, undo Biden’s ban on oil and gas leases on federal land, and “protect energy and mineral development from attacks by the Biden administration.”
This would set in motion America returning to the energy independence enjoyed under President Trump.
But since Nancy Pelosi and Democrats are green energy extremists, they voted down the bill in the House.
Despite the record high gas prices, only 3 Democrats voted in favor of the bill.
Democrats confirmed that they’re the Party of the Green New Deal with this attack on American energy.
In a floor speech, Dan Crenshaw unloaded on Democrats.
He said, “This week our President – our American President – asked Venezuela and Saudi Arabia to increase oil production. Asked them to boost their output so that American consumers wouldn’t see a spike in gas prices.”
“Surely, President Biden knows we can also boost domestic production right here at home. Surely he knows that domestic production supports American jobs. And surely he knows that domestic production is cleaner, by far, than foreign production,” Crenshaw continued.
This is one of Pelosi and House Democrats’ biggest America Last moves yet.
Instead of opening up American energy, they’d rather let Biden funnel millions of dollars into the hands of our enemies like Iran and Venezuela.
Democrats are hellbent on destroying domestic fossil fuel production without any regard to Americans’ pain at the pumps.
Instead, Democrats are promoting green schemes like electric cars and windmills, using the crisis to push their radical Green New Deal agenda.
No matter what happens with gas prices, it’s clear that Pelosi wants to keep them as high as possible.
