Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) laid into President Biden during an appearance on ‘Fox and Friends’ on Tuesday over what he claims is Biden’s inability to stand up to his own party over crucial energy issues.
As Fox News reports:
REP. JIM JORDAN: I sat in a hearing a few months ago where Ro Khanna, a Democrat member from California — the state that’s now got a $7 gas. He had the oil and gas executives there in front of them, and he badgered every one of them, asking them one simple question: Will you pledge to decrease production this year? I mean, the Democrats want $7 gas. So that is the biggest problem.
What that means to middle class families, how that hurts our economy, how that drives up the price of everything because you got – it takes fuel to move goods around the country. So it’s complete craziness, but that’s where the left is today. And unfortunately, they have complete control of the Democrat Party and Joe Biden, I think, is afraid to stand up to them. That’s why he’s talking to Saudi Arabia and Venezuela and Iran, for goodness sake.
-Gas prices are skyrocketing
-Inflation is out of control
-The world is in chaos
And what are Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee doing today?
Holding a hearing on defunding the police!
