Albuquerque – Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham remains silent as President Biden's Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) plans to raid New Mexico's energy industry. The EPA has announced it may soon deem parts of the Permian Basin, the biggest U.S. shale oil basin, in "non-attainment" with ozone standards. In response, Texas Governor Greg Abbott is fighting back to protect his state, noting the action would further raise gas prices and impact workers in the energy industry. Meanwhile, Lujan Grisham is nowhere to be found.
"Governor Lujan Grisham's silence in this critical issue can only mean one thing: her priority is politics and not people," said Larry Behrens, Communications Director for Power The Future. "With New Mexico already facing record gas prices and the highest unemployment in the nation, you would think Governor Lujan Grisham could put partisanship aside to fight for our families. You would be wrong."
Washington, D.C. - Power The Future Executive Director and Founder Daniel Turner issued the following the statement in response to the ruling of the Supreme Court in the case of West Virginia vs. EPA:
"This ruling is a huge victory for anyone who supports American energy independence. If the environmental left really wants to shut down these critical energy products, they need to do it via the legislative process, which currently can't get past their own party, let alone the American public. If the last 18 months have taught us anything, it's that critical energy decisions shouldn't be in the hands of political ideologues in Washington."
Power The Future is a 501c4 non-profit dedicated to fighting for American energy workers.
Washington, D.C. - As President Biden is set to propose a 3-month suspension of the federal tax on gasoline, Power The Future is calling on Congress to fix Biden's political gimmick. Instead of a simple 3-month gimmick, Congress should deliver a law that suspends Joe Biden's failed energy agenda.
"With his poll numbers in free fall and the midterms looming, this is nothing more than a transparent election year gimmick," said Daniel Turner, Executive Director and Founder of Power The Future. "Amid its litany of failures, the Biden Administration has succeeded at creating record inflation, and they have done so by strangling American energy production to appease the eco-extremists. Rather than a temporary gas tax suspension, Joe Biden should permanently suspend pursuit of the green policies that have upended our way of life and sent our economy spiraling."
Power The Future Responds To Biden's Letter To Energy Producers: Real Solutions Needed, Not Political Gimmicks
Washington, D.C. – Power The Future responded to President Biden's letter to the nation's leading energy producers by issuing a letter to the White House on Wednesday demanding real solutions. Power The Future Executive Director and Founder Daniel Turner pointed out the Biden Administration's actions don't match their words when it comes to helping struggling families with record energy prices.
From the letter:
"Your response to the current crisis is clear: your Administration will not reverse its current policy trajectory. The only "solutions" for which your administration feigns support are quickly reversed, presumably after the upcoming midterm elections, when you are less politically vulnerable.
Your letter to American energy leaders follows a pattern of deflection and half-hearted measures will deliver the same failed results and continue to hurt American families. If only you would work with the American energy industry with the same level of cooperation and good will as you will bring on your trip to the Saudi Kingdom imploring them for more oil production.This crisis requires real solutions, not political gimmicks. The American people know the difference."
