“America’s energy independence has never been more important to our economy, national security, and the safety of our allies throughout the world. How often will Democrats fail to recognize that the instability of the world’s affairs and economic shocks come at the hands of dictators who fuel their terror on the world stage with dollars we and our allies are forced to spend on thier oil and gas exports.”
“It’s time to be smarter than the dictators. I call on this administration and my colleagues in the United States Congress to immediately unleash our full energy production capabilities. We must regain our energy independence and also take immediate steps to export far more of our clean liquid natural gas to our European allies.”
“Taking these steps will help tame inflation, contain our enemies’ ability to fund their military ambitions and strengthen democracies throughout the world.
“We must act now. We must put America first.”
