Defeat of Cruz Nord Stream 2 Sanctions Further Weakens America
Biden's congressional enablers each deserve their own chapter in Profiles in Cowardice.
Washington, D.C. – Today, Power The Future released the following statement in after the Senate defeated a bill that would impose sanctions on businesses linked to Vladimir Putin's Nord Stream 2 pipeline, which will allow the Kremlin to further exert influence in the region and weaken America's standing in the world:
"The American left has spent the last five years complaining about Russian collusion, yet they supported a measure that would enrich and empower Vladimir Putin," said Daniel Turner, Founder and Executive Director of Power The Future. "As if that hypocrisy were not appalling enough, these same senators who were so quick to decry American-based pipelines that support jobs and energy independence had no problem greenlighting both for Russia. In less than a year, President Biden has presided over a precipitous decline in America's standing in the world, starting with the erosion of our energy independence. He has had help from these congressional enablers every step of the way, and each deserves his or her own chapter in Profiles in Cowardice."
