Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., weighed in on Congress’s return to work this week in a video posted to her Twitter account.
“Hi everyone, Congress is back in session this week, and this is why it’s always a problem for the American people,” she said. “It’s bad enough that Joe Biden is leading the effort to drain our strategic petroleum reserves, making it a true national emergency for America. This is why gas prices are down.”
The congresswoman continued, “I know they’re trying to give you other reasons, but the real reason is because November is coming, and Joe Biden and the Democrats know they have big problems.”
Greene is known for her firebrand personality and has been unafraid to take swings at the Biden administration and its radical left legislation. She recently introduced the “Protect Children’s Innocence Act,” which would criminalize “gender-affirming care” for minors, and is currently seeking Republican support for the bill.
“This is why gas prices are down because they’re draining our emergency reserves of millions of barrels of oil,” Greene continued in her video.
In fact, an article from Townhall recently reported that the Strategic Petroleum Reserves (SPR) are generally only used during a time of natural disaster or in times of war. However, Biden ordered the draining of the SPR in November 2021 to bring down the cost of energy and transportation. His administration has yet to announce a plan to replenish the preserves, the outlet noted.
“What else is happening?” Greene continued. “Chuck Schumer in the Senate is leading an effort of $50 billion of your hard-earned tax dollars to pay for what? No, not a border wall, not funding the police to reduce crime, not anything to lower inflation. It’s all to send more money to another country’s borders – that’s Ukraine – and also spend money for monkeypox, the one thing that no one is concerned about.”
To date, the United States has sent billions of dollars to Ukraine to aid their war effort while American citizens have been crushed beneath the burden of inflationary pressures.
“Just wanted to give you a heads up on what’s coming,” Greene concluded, “and this is why it’s always a problem when Congress is in session.”
