ICYMI: Power The Future Releases Roadmap For New Congress To Achieve Energy Independence

Washington, D.C. - As the 118th Congress gets ready to take power and the Biden Administration makes a deal with a dictator in Venezuela for more oil, Power The Future is delivering a new roadmap to put America back on the road to energy independence. The plan is already garnering attention and support nationwide, including an endorsement from the Las Vegas Review-Journal saying, "House Republicans should pay heed. The quicker they act, the quicker they can offer voters a clear alternative to Mr. Biden's destructive, expensive and self-defeating energy agenda."

Titled an "Energy Policy Roadmap for 2023," Power The Future lays out ten policies that will provide Americans with immediate energy relief, including:

Lujan Grisham Must Respond to Biden "No More Drilling" Comments

Albuquerque – Less than a week after visiting New Mexico to campaign for Governor Lujan Grisham, President Joe Biden now says he supports "no more drilling" for oil. Biden's latest comments also came less than a day after he called for American energy workers to produce more oil. So far, Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham has not responded to Biden's comments.

"Joe Biden is saying he wants to further dismantle the biggest industry funding the state and Michelle Lujan Grisham is pathetically silent," said Larry Behrens, Communications Director for Power The Future. "Just last week, Biden and Lujan Grisham were all smiles for a photo-op but now when he promises to end our most critical industry, Michelle Lujan Grisham expects she'll just get a pass. It's time for our Governor to choose: Does she stand with New Mexico, or does she stand with Joe Biden?"

Biden Vows to Shut Down Coal Plants "All Across America"

Washington, D.C. - With just days before Americans head to the ballot box, President Biden has vowed to shut down coal plants "all across America." Biden's latest threat against American energy strikes the same tone as his promise to get rid of the oil industry prior to the 2020 election. Power The Future Founder and Executive Director Daniel Turner issued the following statement in response to President Biden's comments:

"For all his failures, Joe Biden has fulfilled his promise to attack the American oil industry and voters should take him seriously with his latest threat against coal. For too long, the proud men and women of the coal industry have taken it on the chin from coastal elitists who would never dream of setting foot anywhere near America's proud rural communities. Enough is enough: it's time to end the Biden Administration's war on energy by sending a loud and unmistakable message that their policies don't work and his priorities are all wrong for our country."

Biden and Lujan Grisham Visit Highlight Similar Failures

Albuquerque – With gas prices once again on the rise and the cost of inflation continuing to hurt New Mexico's working families, President Joe Biden is visiting Albuquerque for an event with Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham. Power the Future Communications Director Larry Behrens gave the following statement in response to Biden's visit:

"Energy is on the ballot this election and New Mexicans are paying thousands more because Joe Biden along with Michelle Lujan Grisham have worked every day to impose an 'America Last' energy policy. President Biden and Michelle Lujan Grisham have a lot in common: they both pledged to end traditional energy sources, both wanted to raise the cost of gas even more within the last year, and both are now trying to paper over their extreme record with moderate rhetoric. New Mexicans expect their leaders to be accountable for their failures, yet all we hear from Joe Biden and Michelle Lujan Grisham is out-of-touch deflection while our families are left holding the bag."

Biden's Latest Energy Deflection: Raise Taxes

Washington, D.C. - According to reports, President Biden will announce a plan to raise taxes on oil companies less than two days after taking creditfor the price at the pump. In response, Daniel Turner, Founder and Executive Director for Power The Future issued the following statement:

"Out of time and answers, the Biden Administration is trotting out another policy straight out of the 1970s in a transparent attempt to shift attention from their colossal failures. Only in Joe Biden's mind does it make sense to lower prices by raising taxes. America was energy independent three short years ago, and for all of President Biden's many shortcomings, his policies on energy stand alone. Raising taxes will do nothing to address our current supply imbalance or lower prices for consumers who are already suffering under Biden's inflation tax. If he was truly interested in improving the current situation, President Biden would sit down with America's energy producers instead of his continued vilification and demonization."

PTF Statement on Fetterman's Fracking Fiasco

Washington, D.C. - Power The Future released the following statement following John Fetterman's flip flop on the subject of fracking during tonight's debate:

"For someone who holds radical anti-fracking views to now pretend he's a moderate is a page right out of Joe Biden's failed playbook," said Daniel Turner, Founder and Executive Director for Power The Future. "When he was running as a proud Bernie Sanders acolyte, John Fetterman was all in on a fracking ban, even calling it a 'stain' on Pennsylvania. There are 500,000 men and women who work in oil and gas in the Keystone State and tonight each one of them saw a Senate candidate lie about his record. They all deserve better than Fetterman's false fracking flip-flop."

New Governor's Poll Proves As Prices Rise Support from New Mexicans Falls

Albuquerque – With two weeks until Election Day, a stunning new poll of likely voters shows New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham trailing challenger Mark Ronchetti. Conducted late last week, the poll shows support for Ronchetti at 46.6% ahead of incumbent Lujan Grisham at 45.5% and made national news with the words "upset alert." The poll was also conducted as news broke that New Mexicans will spend 73 percent more to heat their homes with natural gas this winter compared to when Governor Lujan Grisham first took office.

"New Mexico's families are paying more for everything thanks to Joe Biden's man-made energy crisis and it looks like they're not happy with a Governor who supports it," said Larry Behrens, Communications Director for Power The Future. "Energy is on the ballot this election and it looks like New Mexicans are sick of the failures delivered by the eco-left status quo."
