The House voted Thursday to reverse the Biden administration’s energy policies that Republicans say are eroding U.S. energy security and raising prices for consumers – and picked up support from a small number of Democrats even though President Biden has said he would veto the bill.

Stoves are only the beginning...
Only 4 Dems?
The Democrats don't even pretend anymore.
Stolen elections have consequences.
You veto this, we veto your debt ceiling increase
Allow me to be the first. Bi-partisan! legislation.
Vlad sends his thanks.
Went fr $160/billion in oil/gas revenue to $320 billion/yr
thx to the Dems war on oil.
US policy is paying for one side, US tax dollars are paying for the other side-
all hail the military industrial complex.
The day a GOP takes over and returns US output to pre pandemic levels is the day withdraws.
It really is that simple.
The GOP can enforce this but only if they have the spine for a budget showdown.
“...only if they have the spine...”
Well, we all know where that’ll go.
"The GOP can enforce this but only if they have the spine for a budget showdown."
Even when GOPe was minority, GOPe didn't effectively exercise majority power by publicly defending clarifications by Supreme Court justices of Congress's constitutionally limited power to appropriate taxes.
"Congress is not empowered to tax for those purposes which are within the exclusive province of the States." —Justice John Marshall, Gibbons v. Ogden, 1824.
“If the tax be not proposed for the common defence, or general welfare, but for other objects, wholly extraneous, (as for instance, for propagating Mahometanism among the Turks, or giving aids and subsidies to a foreign nation, to build palaces for its kings, or erect monuments to its heroes,) it would be wholly indefensible upon constitutional principles [emphases added].” — Justice Joseph Story, Commentaries on the Constitution 2 (1833).
”Simply this, that the care of the property, the liberty, and the life of the citizen, under the solemn sanction of an oath imposed by your Constitution, is in the States and not in the federal government [emphases added]. I have sought to effect no change in that respect in the Constitution of the country.” —John Bingham, Congressional. Globe. 1866, page 1292 (see top half of third column)
Pelosi: "We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it." (non-FR; 6 sec.)
“Cherish, therefore, the spirit of our people, and keep alive their attention. If once they become inattentive to the public affairs, you and I, and Congress and Assemblies, judges and governors, shall all become wolves [emphasis added]. It seems to be the law of our general nature.” - Thomas Jefferson (Letter to Edward Carrington January 16, 1787)
Democrats Are Terrified Of An Educated And Informed Public (3.12.23)
Patriots, the bottom line is this imo. What is your threshold of “pain” for peacefully stopping unconstitutionally big state and federal governments controlled by bully, constitutionally undefined political parties, from oppressing the people under their boots?
The inevitable remedy for ongoing, post-17A ratification, corrupt political party treason (imo)...
All MAGA patriots need to wake up their RINO federal and state lawmakers by making the following clear to them.
If they don’t publicly support either a resolution, or a Constitutional Convention, to effectively "secede" ALL the states from the unconstitutionally big federal government by amending the Constitution to repeal the 16th (direct taxes) and 17th (popular voting for federal senators) Amendments (16&17A), doing so before the primary elections in 2024, that YOU will primary them.
If the proposed amendment was limited strictly to repealing 16&17A, relatively little or ideally no discussion would be needed before ratification of the amendment imo.
With 16&17A out of the way, my hope is that Trump 47 becomes the FIRST president of a truly constitutionally limited power federal government.
In the meanwhile, I'm not holding my breath for significant MAGA legislation to appear in the first 100 days of new term for what may still prove to be another RINO-controlled House.
In other words, primarying RINOs in 2022 was just for practice. Trump will hopefully do another round of primarying for 2024 elections.
“Republicans vote to end Biden’s ‘war on energy,’ only 4 Dems agree.
Only 4 Dems?”
Sounds bi-partisan to me.
Who were the 4 Dems who agree...bet they are in purple districts.
Yes. So good to see a few Democrats rejecting the narrow partisan concerns that these extremists cling to, and vote in the interests of the country.
We’re still exporting record amounts of energy...
Sounds like bipartisan support to end Biden’s war on energy.
I hope so, but I’ll not be surprised if it isn’t.
Let’s have a list!
Cut it in half; we need it here.
