FreedomWorks Statement in Response to Biden Remarks on Energy Security and Gas Prices

WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to President Biden’s remarks today on reduced American energy security and high gas prices, Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks President, commented:

“President Biden began his remarks today with the lie that he has done nothing to stop domestic oil production. This is false. Even members of his own party openly admit it in their foolhardy quest for 100 percent renewable energy.”

“But what’s truly malevolent is Biden’s eagerness to exhaust the strategic petroleum reserve as a means to save Democratic seats in the Midterms. By releasing more oil from the strategic reserve, Biden puts American national security at risk. Some might even say this is an impeachable offense.”

“What’s rich is that Biden is talking out of both sides of his mouth. On the one hand, he pushes the green political agenda to ‘strengthen’ national security, while at the same time undermining military readiness by exhausting the strategic petroleum reserve. Biden must be held accountable.”
