Committee Would Be Better Served Calling on Biden Administration Officials to Testify
Washington, D.C. – Today’s hearing of the subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations is just the latest chapter in blame deflection brought on by House leaders. Less than a month after one poll found 70 percent of Americans blame President Biden for high gasoline prices, these House leaders are not calling anyone within the Biden Administration to testify and be held accountable. In fact, just yesterday, Rep. Ro Khanna (D-CA) could not defend his position to raise taxes on oil companies or even name a single instance of proof for price gouging allegations.
"This sham hearing is nothing more than political theater designed to turn around abysmal poll numbers and will do nothing to help consumers struggling under Biden’s record gas prices," said Daniel Turner, Founder and Executive Director of Power The Future. "This committee would be better served to call John Kerry, Deb Haaland and Richard Glick to testify and answer for their policy decisions that squandered America’s energy independence and security."
