Fitzgerald, Armstrong Lead House Colleagues in Calling Out Biden Administration’s Attempted Distraction from its Disastrous Energy Policies
WASHINGTON, DC – Last week, Congressman Scott Fitzgerald (WI-05) and Congressman Kelly Armstrong (R-ND) led 18 of their House Republican colleagues in a letter to President Joe Biden expressing concern over his recent actions encouraging the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Chair Lina Khan to investigate oil and gas companies based on inaccurate allegations concerning rising gasoline prices.
The cause for the dramatic gasoline price increase is largely due to your Administration’s energy policies that have stifled our domestic energy industry, not unsubstantiated allegations of anti-consumer behavior,” the members wrote to President Biden.
Pressure is mounting on the Biden administration to share information they have that prompted the investigation request. Recently, FTC Commissioners Noah Phillips and Christine Wilson wrote to National Economic Council Director Brian Deese asking him to provide evidence in the White House’s possession of potentially illegal conduct behind high gas prices.
Members joining Fitzgerald and Armstrong on the letter are Greg Pence (R-IN), Scott Perry (R-PA), David McKinley (R-WV), Stephanie Bice (R-OK), Greg Steube (R-FL), Bob Latta (R-OH), Ken Calvert (R-CA), Tom Tiffany (R-WI), Ralph Norman (R-SC), Michael Guest (R-MS), Kat Cammack (R-FL), Lauren Boebert (R-CO), Troy Balderson (R-OH), David Valadao (R-CA), Liz Cheney (R-WY), Buddy Carter (R-GA), Ben Cline (R-VA), and Michael Burgess (R-TX).
