Joe Biden‘s vow to phase out the oil industry at Thursday’s debate creates a problem for Democratic candidates in red-leaning states and swing House districts as it gives Republicans an opening to tie them to their party’s left wing.
The Socialist wing of the 2020 Democratic Party has a plan to make America energy efficient, it’s called the Green New Deal, and it is everything you would expect from people who desire to see American become Venezuela. It is massively expensive, it is completely impractical, and most of all, it will decimate the American economy which is actually the whole reason behind it. Joe Biden is a proud supporter of the Green New Deal, it says so right on his own web site. 2020 is the year America voted on Socialism, because that’s what is really on the ballot.
Over in La La Land, Gavin Newsom has decreed that all vehicles that operate on petroleum products will be illegal by the year 2035, and everyone running on electric vehicles. A pretty good trick when you consider that in 2020 alone, California had rolling blackouts affecting millions of people as thier power grid repeatedly was unable to keep up with demand. Now, add to that scenario what it will be like when nearly 20 million vehicles will need electric power to operate. Lights out.
If Joe Biden was to keep his campaign promise to “phase out the oil industry”, it would cause economic bedlam the likes of which it would be hard to imagine, and it would bring back the around the block gas lines of the Jimmy Carter era. The Green New Deal is nothing more than a desperate attempt to rid America of the robust economy that has provide the world’s best standard of living since WWII. I am against Socialism, against the Green New Deal, and against Joe Biden destroying the American economy. How about you, want to live like Venezuela?
Biden’s oil stance jars Democrats in tough races
FROM THE HILL: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said in April of last year that he wanted to make the 2020 election “a referendum on socialism.” That strategy ran into a big problem when Democrats nominated Biden, a candidate who developed a reputation as a moderate during his decades in Washington, for president.
Now Biden’s blunt affirmation that “yes” he “would transition” when asked by President Trump on Thursday whether he would “close down the oil industry,” gives Republican candidates ammo.
“BIDEN HAS ROLLED OUT NOTHING SHORT OF AN ENTIRELY LEFT-WING ECONOMIC AGENDA AND HAS NEVER BEEN FORCED TO DEFEND IT ON A PUBLIC STAGE UNTIL THURSDAY,” SAID JOSH HOLMES, A REPUBLICAN STRATEGIST AND MCCONNELL’S FORMER CHIEF OF STAFF.
Holmes said Biden’s comments on oil could have “profound effect” in states such as Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Texas and others were there is what he called “a culture of energy production.”
“I’VE ALWAYS THOUGHT THAT REMINDING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WHAT ECONOMIC POLICY CAME OUT OF THE OBAMA-BIDEN ADMINISTRATION IS A POWERFUL REELECTION MESSAGE FOR DONALD TRUMP,” HE ADDED.
Biden’s remarks will give Republicans a chance to put the economy and regulation in the spotlight for the final 10 days of the campaign, something they’ve wanted to do for months. The National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) released a new television ad in Maine attempting to tie Democratic candidate Sara Gideon to “liberal out-of-staters” who “want a green new deal raising taxes on home heating oil.”
Biden walked right into the Republican talking points by pledging to end federal subsidies for the oil industry. One such subsidy, the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program is especially popular in Maine. Steve Jarding, a Democratic strategist, characterized Biden’s comments as a “small fumble.”
