Speaking to Breitbart, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) expressed his opinion of the Biden Administration is supporting higher gas prices so that Americans will be more in favor of his party’s green energy initiatives.
From his very first days in office, the Former Vice President has been actively taking steps that have an impact on our country’s energy supply. Biden had shut down large pipelines and restricted federal leases for drilling and energy production. With these actions made by the Biden administration, Cotton said, “it’s not unintended or some accident” that gas prices have been reaching extraordinary heights.
Cotton said, “Most notably, more and more people tell me that they’re not even able to fill their pickup truck tank up for the entire week. They’ve got to fill up half a tank and hope that the price comes down by the end of the week. That, in particular, is the intended effect of Joe Biden’s energy policy. It’s not unintended or some accident. They want gas to cost $4 a gallon because they want all of us to get out of pickup trucks and SUVs and get into small electric compacts or bicycles or scooters or whatever else Pete Buttigieg takes to work.”
Cotton went on to say, “At this rate, people are losing a penny on every dollar of their savings every month. So in three months, if you had $100 in your savings account, it’ll be worth only $97 in just three months. That is going to continue to worsen as long as the Democrats pursue their reckless inflationary policies. I heard it today; I hear it all across Arkansas. People can’t find the turkeys and the fixings for Thanksgiving. If they can, they can barely afford it. They can’t find Christmas gifts for the kids. If they can, they have to cut back the number of presents they buy.”
