RISING INFLATION SEES MAINE, NEW ENGLANDERS BLAST BIDEN ADMINISTRATION AND ‘RICH PEOPLE TRYING TO GET RICHER’
The Texas congressman joined “Fox & Friends First” on Thursday to discuss the president’s policy on domestic energy production as the White House claims it has no control over the spike in cost.
“The president has done everything in his power to stifle production,” Rep. Pfluger explained. “We’ve seen an all out war and assault starting with the cancellation of the Keystone Pipeline. Meanwhile, he has greenlighted the Nord Stream pipeline.”
Inflation has reached the highest rate in over three decades, and energy prices surged nearly 5% last month, prompting rampant concerns for many Americans as the holidays loom.
