Washington, D.C. – Joe Biden and Senate Democrats’ radical tax and spending spree is causing energy prices to skyrocket. From heating homes to fueling cars, this assault on American energy affects every hardworking American’s bottom line. Small businesses must pay more to ship products, daily commutes to work cost more, and home heating bills are more expensive.
Rising energy costs aren’t the only byproduct of Democrats’ radical energy agenda. American energy workers are suffering while the Biden Administration creates energy jobs in foreign countries.
Joe Biden and Senate Democrats’ radical energy agenda is killing good-paying American energy jobs while creating energy jobs in countries like Russia. Joe Biden killed 11,000 American energy jobs on his first day in office when he cancelled the Keystone XL Pipeline. Meanwhile, he allowed Russia to continue construction on the Nordstream 2 pipeline, creating thousands of Russian energy jobs.
Statement from NRSC Spokesman Jonathan Turcotte: “Democrats’ radical energy agenda is killing American jobs and sending energy prices through the roof, but Democrats aren’t done. They are doubling down on their radical tax and spending spree in their latest $5 trillion liberal boondoggle. This multibillion-dollar spending spree – along with the largest tax hike in decades – will no doubt cause energy prices to skyrocket even further. Joe Biden and Senate Democrats say they only want to raise taxes on the wealthy. But, make no mistake, their anti-American energy agenda is a tax hike on ALL Americans.”
