Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, argued on Sunday that Democrats “hate the Democratic process itself” based on their reaction to the Supreme Court’s Environmental Protection Agency decision.
Lee made the comment on “Sunday Morning Futures” three days after the high court dealt a significant blow to the Biden administration’s climate change agenda, ruling Thursday that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) cannot pass sweeping regulations that could overhaul entire industries without additional congressional approval.
The article goes on to state the following:
Democrats and environmental groups quickly condemned the Supreme Court decision for curbing federal regulatory powers related to climate issues.
“Catastrophic. A filibuster carveout is not enough,” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “We need to reform or do away with the whole thing, for the sake of the planet.”
Rep. Ilhan Omar said that the decision “flies in the face” of the law and “basic morality.”
“The decades-long fight to protect citizens from corporate polluters is being wiped out by these MAGA extremist justices,” Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer tweeted. “Every Republican who helped seat these justices is complicit.”
Sen. Lee, a member of the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources, said Sunday, “This begs the question, why do they [Democrats] hate democracy.”
“Why do they hate allowing people to elect their own representatives to make laws? That’s really what we’re dealing with here,” Lee declared.
“All they’re saying is Congress has the power if it wants to do things like this to authorize them,” he continued. “Congress hasn’t done that. Congress must do that if it wants the government to act in this way.”
“What is so offensive to them about the idea of having laws enacted by lawmakers who are elected by the people?” Lee asked.
