Job Creators Network Calls Out Biden’s Executive Order on Environmental Justice as Trojan Horse for Socialist Policies

Alfredo Ortiz, president and CEO of Job Creators Network, released the following statement on President Biden’s executive order on environmental justice:

“Under the guise of ‘environmental justice,’ the Biden administration is pushing socialist policies that will raise energy costs on small businesses and ordinary Americans. While we all want a clean environment, the Biden administration’s environmental executive order is nothing more than a Trojan Horse for radical policies that drive up the cost of traditional energy, which is a major input cost for small businesses. During this period of historic inflation, high gas prices, and burdensome energy costs, it is time to recommit to unleashing American domestic energy reserves, not imply that traditional energy is racist. Cheap, reliable energy is needed most by ordinary Americans, and Biden’s executive order threatens to put this necessity further out of reach for those who need it most.”
