State Democrats scrambling away from President Biden’s disastrous energy policies

Ordinary Americans are being forced to pay more at the pump because of President Joe Biden. However, some in his own party are striking out against the president.

State-level Democrats are making moves to distance themselves from Biden’s policies that have significantly increased the price per gallon of gasoline, Breitbart reported. With midterm elections just around the corner, some see the opportunity to abolish gas taxes and make other overtures toward lowering prices.

Biden has hamstrung America’s energy independence while other factors cause the price of oil to continue to climb significantly. In order to take the heat off the end users —  regular voting Americans — many state lawmakers have proposed measures to provide relief.

For instance, California state Democrats have proposed forking over $400 rebates to relieve drivers who are paying higher prices. Other Democrats in other states are considering suspending gasoline taxes even as they previously voted against such measures.

Maryland and Minnesota have both suspended scheduled gas tax hikes, while New York is still considering the measure. In Virginia, a proposal to stop tax hikes was blocked by state Senate Democrats though they are now singing a different tune.

Virginia Republican Gov. Glenn Youngkin had inherited a policy that would raise gas taxes based on inflation and proposed legislation to suspend those hikes until 2023. The State Democrats opposed the bill just a month ago, but now state House Minority Leader Eileen Filler-Corn (D-Fairfax) called for a state of emergency stopping the increase based on a rule that “prohibits price-gouging in times of disaster.”

Republican-led states like Florida are having an easier time taking the heat off constituents with the tax breaks. Such measures have already worked in Georgia and Mississippi, and even in a swing state like Wisconsin.

Biden has made things difficult for fellow Democrats, so now they’re trying to patch together what strategy they can to keep from losing their power in the 2022 midterm elections. However, Americans will not soon forget which party has done this to them regardless of what they do to make it better.
