Mike Pence lauds Permian Basin oil and gas growth at Artesia visit amid pollution concerns
“I thought there was nowhere better to come than literally the heart of an energy renaissance," said former-Vice President Mike Pence.
The Biden administration is waging war on American energy, causing massive inflation that is pummeling family budgets and our economy. But we can heal this self-inflicted wound—all the President has to do is Unleash American Energy! 🇺🇸
Joe Biden has depleted half of our Strategic Petroleum Reserve. Instead of unleashing domestic producers, he asked OPEC to increase production & this week OPEC cut production by 2 million barrels per day!
Honored to be with leaders of New Mexico’s energy industry today to hear their thoughts on what we can do to once again Unleash American Energy and defeat the inflation that is wrecking our economy! 🇺🇸
As Governor, @MarkRonchettiNM will end the pro-crime policies of the current administration, stand with our heroic police officers, cut taxes in half for low and middle income families, and increase incentives for businesses that relocate to or expand in New Mexico!
I’m supporting @MarkRonchettiNM because he is a proven Conservative who will end the crime wave plaguing New Mexico, get this state’s economy running at full speed, and bring down the inflation that Joe Biden has unleashed on our country! 🇺🇸
Extreme MAGA Republican Senator Ron Johnson wants to put Social Security and Medicare on the chopping block every year.
This guy never gives up.
But we never give up either.
Sending people to prison for possessing marijuana has upended too many lives and incarcerated people for conduct that many states no longer prohibit. That's before you address the clear racial disparities around prosecution and conviction.
Today, we start to right these wrongs.
The CHIPs and Science Act makes historic investments in companies to build advanced manufacturing facilities here in America.
Now IBM is investing $20 billion to design and manufacture semiconductors, mainframe technology, and quantum computers.
Too many lives have been upended because of our failed approach to marijuana.
Today I announced a pardon of all prior federal offenses of simple possession of marijuana, urged governors to do the same, and asked HHS and DOJ to review how marijuana is scheduled under federal law.
Republican leaders are trying to get a national ban on abortion, which includes criminalizing doctors, and nurses with up to five years in prison.
Are you kidding me?

I applaud this move and I beg you to completely End the War on Drugs.
Easy next steps - expunge the arrests you are pardoning. Move cannabis to schedule 0 immediately. End the banking prohibition on cannabis related transactions.
As I’ve said before, no one should be in jail just for using or possessing marijuana.
Today, I’m taking steps to end our failed approach. Allow me to lay them out.
The world is changing. We can either shape it, or we can be shaped by it. I believe we have an enormous opportunity to build back a country that is even better than before.
Can I count on you to join us? http://JoeBiden.com

Congressional Republicans are doubling down on their extreme position with a proposal for a national abortion ban. That means even if you live in a state where extremist Republican officials are not running the show, your right to choose will still be at risk.
If you believe in the promise of America, then vote for Democrats.
Under the Trump-Pence Administration, America was an energy superpower.
After just two years of Biden and Democrat control of Congress, we’re getting kicked around by foreign adversaries in OPEC+ and groveling before the Venezuelan dictatorship for oil.
RELEASE: The Green Party gubernatorial ticket of Howie Hawkins and Gloria Mattera criticized state and federal Democratic leaders today for climate inaction and pandering to the fossil fuel industry.

I wish I could say Republicans supported our progress in reducing health care costs and strengthening Medicare. That would be good for all of America.
But when it actually came time to do something about inflation around the kitchen table, every one of them voted no.
President @JoeBiden and I believe that a woman should have the freedom to make decisions about her own body without government interference.
Congress should codify the protections of Roe v. Wade and do it once and for all.
But right now, we're short a handful of votes, so the only way it's going to happen is if the American people vote in November.

Under Republican leaders’ proposed national ban on abortion, they would criminalize doctors and nurses with up to five years in prison.
I signed the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act into law, the first major gun safety legislation in nearly 30 years. I’m not going to stop until I again get an assault weapons ban passed.

MAGA Republicans don’t have a clue about the power of women. They are about to find out.
We're not going to sit by and let Republicans throughout the country enact extreme policies to threaten access to basic health care.
That's why we have taken a number of actions to protect access to reproductive health care, including emergency medical care.
Four Years Ago Today…
America “must not relent until our relationship with China is grounded in fairness, reciprocity and respect for our sovereignty”. 🇺🇸
Today, America is reaching out our hand to China. We hope that soon Beijing will reach back – with deeds, not words, & with renewed respect for America. But we will not relent until our relationship with China is grounded in fairness, reciprocity, & respect for our sovereignty.
For years, there has been no check on how high or how fast Big Pharma can raise drug prices. But thanks to the Inflation Reduction Act, that ends now.
If Big Pharma tries to raise drug prices faster than inflation, they'll be penalized and have to rebate the money to Medicare.
Ending slavery is on the ballot in Alabama this year and 4 other states. Alabama currently has 46,000 slaves in the prison system making products for pennies to fund the prison industrial complex.
It's time for prison reform.
While some of us have been distracted with other recent news, Alabama locks up a higher % of its people than any democracy on earth.
For the past week, 15 of Alabama's largest prison systems have been on strike due to the conditions they face on a daily basis.
Great leaders started a movement which culminated about 50 years ago in the Roe v. Wade decision.
We are now responsible for picking up that movement—and we will.

"If the Green Party is going to become a major party, it will have to enlist voters who are among the working class, youth, and people of color who don’t vote now because they are alienated from the political process."

Dream with ambition.
Economic development funds in NY are little more than corporate welfare, rich companies grabbing tax dollars. It is extremely unlikely that a company with $100 billion to build is dependent on a $5 billion handout. How much equity do taxpayers get for this handout?

In 2022, we have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to build a majority that could last for generations and this is the team that is going to take back the House and begin the Great American Comeback! 🇺🇸
Honored to be in Kentucky to support an amazing group of Conservative Republican leaders! In 35 days we’re going to send @barrforcongress, @GarbarinoforNY, @JuanCiscomani, @BrucePoliquin & @KeanForCongress to Washington, take back the House & retire Nancy Pelosi once and for all!
Senator Ron Johnson said if Republicans get control of Washington, they’re coming after the Affordable Care Act again, denying protections for anyone with a preexisting condition.
These guys never stop.
Get in, folks. We're building a better America: http://JoeBiden.com

In addition, nearly $700 million in infrastructure investments in Puerto Rico have been announced since I signed the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.

A quick reminder on the EPA since they're on deck for this Supreme Court session. The EPA and politicians sell polluting privileges to large corporations in return for favors.
They license polluting. That's all.
Pay-to-play Gov. Hochul (D-NY) gives billions to her fat cat donors in tax breaks and contracts, but doesn't support the Polluters Pay bill to fund climate action.
For Hochul, it's welfare for the rich, austerity for climate action.
