BIDEN’S AGENDA, IMPEACHMENT & CABINET NOMINEES

Biden’s Agenda, Impeachment & Cabinet Nominees

Joe Biden’s Energy Agenda is Killing Jobs

  • President Joe Biden’s war on American energy has already destroyed thousands of American jobs.
  • Biden stopped construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline.
    • By halting the Keystone Pipeline, Joe Biden has crushed over 11,000 American jobs – including 8 million union jobs – and $1.6 billion in U.S. wages. 
  • President Biden directed federal agencies to determine how expansive a ban on new oil and gas leasing on federal land should be, the first step in implementing his proposed ban.
  • We have rejoined the disastrous Paris Climate Agreement.
  • Biden officials are dismissing the job losses due to the radical energy agenda.
  • Joe Biden’s calls for unity are disingenuous. His 40+ executive orders, actions, and memorandums show he has no interest in working across the aisle.
  • Republicans will keep fighting for American workers while Biden kills American jobs.

Impeachment

  • Impeaching former President Donald Trump is nothing more than a politically motivated overreach that will only divide our country further.
  • The process has already been tainted by House Democrats who rushed impeachment through the House (with zero due process for President Trump), only for Nancy Pelosi to delay sending the articles to the Senate for 28 days.
    • Even the New York Times Editorial Board disapproved of Pelosi’s delay.
  • Many Democrats called for President Trump to be impeached even before he took office.
  • The Founders designed the impeachment process as a way to remove officeholders from public office—not as a tool to punish private citizens.
    • Several prominent law professors, jurists, and nearly every Senate Republican have made clear they agree that this process is unconstitutional.
  • Democrats like Bernie Sanders already admitted to delaying action on important legislation like COVID relief for political gain. This is yet another distraction from the priorities our country must address like combatting COVID, opening our schools, distributing vaccines, and getting Americans back to work.
  • Republicans will keep fighting for American workers while Democrats sow division and put politics first.

Joe Biden Fills the Swamp

  • This week, the Senate will continue holding hearings on Joe Biden’s cabinet nominees.
  • Biden’s cabinet picks continue to raise eyebrows for a history of self-dealing and corruption.
  • Fmr. Obama Administration official Thomas Vilsack has been nominated to serve as the Secretary of Agriculture.
    • By selecting Vilsack, Biden disappointed farm groups who had rallied their support around former Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND).
    • Democrat activists have also been sharply critical of the pick, with Mitch Jones, policy director for Food and Water Watch, an environmental advocacy group, saying that “Vilsack has made a career of catering to the whims of corporate agriculture giants, some of whom he has gone to work for.”
  • Boston Mayor Marty Walsh has been nominated to serve as the Secretary of Labor.
