“We want to change all that. And that’s what we’re talking about here — how the commitment to America has a plan for each challenge to make our economy stronger. That means stopping inflation, bringing the price of fuel down, making our community safe,” he added.
House Republicans believe that they unleash American energy production and make America the largest energy producer in the world again, as it was under former President Donald Trump. The House Republican energy plan includes:
- Maximizing the production of American-made energy
- Cutting the permitting process in half to reduce reliance on foreign countries
- Lower the cost of gas and utility bills
As part of ensuring a strong economy, Republicans remain committed to lowering gas prices, as Democrats in Congress and the Biden administration, as well as many corporations, have pushed Environment, Social, and Governance (ESG) policies that would push America away from less expensive and more reliable energy such as natural gas to unstable and more expensive energy sources such as solar and wind.
The House Republican Study Committee (RSC) has proposed other potential solutions to lower energy prices by curbing the ESG movement. Congressional Democrats, the Democrat-led Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), and the world’s largest asset managers, BlackRock, StateStreet, and Vanguard, have pushed the ESG movement. Principally, these Wall Street firms push investors into “socially responsible funds” to invest in funds based on criteria such as greenhouse gas emissions or a CEO’s compensation.
The Biden White House has deep ties to BlackRock.
