While gas prices continue to rise, Maggie Hassan, Catherine Cortez Masto and Patty Murray have been waging war on American energy. They voted against the Keystone XL Pipeline, killing thousands of American energy jobs. They voted against prohibiting the Biden Administration from banning fracking. And they voted against protecting American consumers and promoting American energy. While Hassan, Cortez Masto, Murray … Continue reading These Senate Dems oppose US energy, but pocketed maximum cash donations from Russian government’s Nord Stream 2 lobbyist
U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, issued the following statement after the Biden administration made its announcement on Nord Stream 2: “This announcement typifies the mix of incoherence and weakness that has come to embody the foreign policy of President Biden and the Biden-Harris administration, at incalculable cost to … Continue reading Cruz: Nord Stream 2 announcement ‘typifies the mix of incoherence and weakness that has come to embody the foreign policy of President Biden’
