Wyoming Senator Barrasso Lashes Out at Biden Energy Policies
Wyoming Sen. John Barrasso (R), said on a Fox News Sunday talk show that President Joe Biden embarrassed Americans at the recent climate conference in Glasgow, accusing the president of pledging “allegiance to the flag of the United Nations,” not the United States.
“Joe Biden and a large entourage of Democrats from the House and the Senate and his cabinet all jetting off to Europe to a climate conference and for what purpose?” Barrasso asked on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures.” “What did he do there? He pledged allegiance to the flag of the United Nations instead of to the flag of the United States.”
“He basically apologized for America. He begged OPEC and [Valadmir] Putin to create more energy, to make more energy. And he promised to raise energy prices in America,” Barrasso continued.
Senator Barrasso then went on to talk about the now-closed Keystone XL pipeline.
An Alaskan drilling project may be shut down soon by the Biden administration.
The Biden administration is reportedly weighing the potential market consequences of shutting down an oil pipeline in Michigan, drawing criticism from opponents. Former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm, Biden's energy secretary, predicted Sunday that heating prices will rise this winter regardless of the Biden administration's decision on the pipeline. "Yeah, this is going to happen. It will be more expensive this year than last year," Granholm told CNN.
Barrasso then spoke about buying Russian oil rather than American oil.
He said to add insult to injury the Biden administration is composed of “climate hypocrites,” creating a carbon footprint at the conference that was “so much larger than Vladimir Putin’s or President Xi’s of China — because they stayed home.” (Fox News).
“The American people deserve accountability of how much taxpayer dollars we as taxpayers paid for this effort of all of these liberal Democrats to head to Europe on the taxpayer dime," said Senator Barasso.
