President Biden Threatens More Illegal Government Overreach and Even Higher Energy Prices to Respond to Climate Change “Emergency”

Alfredo Ortiz, president and CEO of Job Creators Network, released the following statement in response to President Biden’s remarks today on climate change:

“President Biden is ignoring the real emergency facing ordinary Americans and small businesses: skyrocketing gas prices and electric bills due to his administration’s war on traditional energy. Biden’s announcement today that he will implement new rules on energy production in the name of the climate change ’emergency’ will only exacerbate the financial pain everyday Americans are facing as a result of his radical green energy agenda. Rather than respond to America’s energy cost crisis, Biden is choosing to please liberal elites by sacrificing American living standards to the climate change altar. Fortunately, the Supreme Court recently ruled that such executive overreach and unaccountable administrative power is illegal, meaning Biden’s announcement today amounts to little more than political grandstanding. American consumers who can’t afford to fill up their cars, cool their homes, or feed their families this summer deserve better.”
