Liberals In Congress Push Biden For More Restrictions On Fossil Fuels As Americans Struggle With Gas Prices

The American people are struggling like never before with inflation and rising gas prices.

And what are progressives in Congress doing? They want Biden to place more restrictions on fossil fuels and to charge ahead with their climate change focused agenda.

This will make things worse for most Americans.

Democrats clearly don’t care.

Liberals in Congress are pressing President Joe Biden to invoke emergency powers to push ahead with Democrats’ climate change agenda and to put new restrictions on fossil fuels, even while gasoline remains at its highest per-gallon price on record.

With legislation stalled in Congress, the nearly 100-member Congressional Progressive Caucus released a slate of policy recommendations Thursday for Biden to pursue, calling on him to use executive action to deal with a list of topics his “Build Back Better” agenda sought to address, including the development of more green energy technologies and placement of restrictions on new fossil fuel production.

The executive action agenda calls for Biden to declare a national climate emergency, as well as to employ the Defense Production Act, which both Biden and former President Donald Trump have done under the aegis of COVID-19 to increase ventilator and vaccine supplies, in order to build more renewable energy technologies, such as solar panels and wind turbines.

It also calls for Biden to target the fossil fuel industry directly through a reinstitution of a ban on crude oil exports in response to high oil and gasoline prices, something Democrats began urging Biden to do in earnest back in November, and encourages the administration to ban new fossil fuel leases on federal lands and waters.

These people know they’re not going to be in control for much longer.

They’re placing their agenda over the needs of the American people.
