Washington Dc, when Democrat policies are a total failure and drive up oil prices , democrat politicians line up and play the blame game. First you denie it, then then you blame a foreign boogie man and claim any one that disagrees is promoting propaganda and then when all else fails you blame oil companies . Be it shutting down the Keystone Pipeline or curtailing oil exploration on Federal land it is democrat policies that have pushed oil prices higher.
Worse yet while our NJ Representatives were voting to shut down the Keystone Pipeline, they were accepting campaign contributions from a lobby firm promoting the Russian to Europe pipeline called Nord Stream 2 thereby giving away leverage to Vladimir Putin in his invasion of the Ukraine .
Democratic Representatives Tom Malinowski, Mikie Sherrill, Andy Kim and our own Josh Gottheimer along with U.S. Senator Bob Menendez all accepted donations from a Nord Stream 2 lobbyist.
