Indiana Republican Rep. Jim Banks joined “The Ingraham Angle” Tuesday with a fistful of outrage at Biden’s sneaky new energy bill.
The lawmaker didn’t mense words and warned that if things go wrong in Ukraine, we all know who to thank. “Joe Biden’s the best thing that ever happened to Putin and Russia”, Banks snapped.
He continued, “we’re seeing that play out in real time, and if Russia ends up winning in Ukraine, there are two people that Putin should thank: Greta Thunberg and Joe Biden because of the disastrous energy policies that they’ve enacted in the United States in the name of climate change and the Green New Deal.”
Biden tried to squeeze his green new deal into his failed infrastructure deal but finally managed to pass the insanely expensive package under the guise that it would ‘fix inflation’. A problem that HE caused.
Banks reminded Laura Ingraham about Biden’s foreign policies, “remember that Joe Biden is selling out America’s foreign policy to China in the interest of climate change. Remember that Donald Trump was buying oil at $25 a barrel for the energy preserves, and now you have Biden — it’s going to be $80 a barrel that he’s going to spend to replenish it and the taxpayers are the ones who are on the hook for it.”
“Meanwhile,” he noted, “at the White House Biden falsely celebrated “zero” inflation when it’s just as high as ever. CNN actually cut Joe Biden’s bogus victory speech to cover Tuesday’s major stock market drop. Inflation has jumped by more than 13% since Biden’s inauguration in January 2021, according to calculations by Peter C. Earle, an economist at the American Institute for Economic Research. Core inflation, which excludes volatile food and energy prices, increased by approximately 10% over the same period.”
Folks, those numbers don’t even reflect what Biden’s new spending bill will do to inflation. Sadly it will be months before we have a glimpse at those numbers. I am almost willing to bet the White House will fight the release of those numbers just like they did with immigration last year.
