Sen. Steve Daines, R-Mont., accused President Biden and Democrats of using the Russian oil ban as a “fig leaf” to cover for their “radical” Green New Deal policy proposals.
Daines made the comments during an interview with FOX Business and said that this isn’t just about banning Russian oil: Democrats want to ban all oil.
The article goes on to state the following:
“I think the Democrats are using this ban as a fig leaf to cover up their radical Green New Deal priorities because it’s not just about banning Russian oil. They want to ban all oil,” Daines said.
Daines said that while the Democrats have banned Russian oil imports, they are not willing to increase domestic oil production.
“Banning Russian oil is great but it’s not enough. Instead of turning to dictators and adversaries we should ramp up production here in the United States,” Daines explained. “We have an abundance of energy and we should use that as a tool, not only for our own energy security but also to support our overseas allies and partners.”
Biden announced a ban on Russian oil imports into the US on Tuesday and warned Americans will feel the pain of that decision at the gas pump.
“Putin’s war is already hurting American families at the gas pump since Putin began his military buildup on Ukrainian borders,” Biden said. “And with this action, it’s going to go up further.”
“I’m going to do everything I can to minimize Putin’s price hike here at home and coordination with our partners,” Biden added, but did not confirm any plans to increase American oil production.
“President Biden and the Democrats need to abandon their radical, woke Green New Deal priorities and support Made in America energy for the sake of American families and our national security,” Daines said.
