Ted Cruz: Biden and his political apparatchiks want to destroy domestic energy production

Ted Cruz torches Biden’s energy policies

Texas Republican gives his take on the president’s energy policies and Biden’s response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine on ‘Kudlow.’

Senator Ted Cruz slammed Biden's energy policies as Russian troops advance in Ukraine on "Kudlow."

TED CRUZ: You know, unfortunately, I don't. Biden and his political apparatchiks made clear their objectives were to embrace the Green New Deal and what they want to do is destroy domestic energy production. They want to shut down domestic oil production, shut down domestic natural gas, and sadly, they've had far too much success doing so. 

Literally the first week in office, Joe Biden shuts down the Keystone Pipeline. The first week in office, Joe Biden suspends new leases on federal lands, suspends new offshore leases and … we see gas prices skyrocketing. And you know, the Biden White House acts as if the laws of supply and demand don't operate, that when you reduce supply and demand goes up, one thing always happens, which is prices go up and up and up and up, 

And you know… if Jen Psaki is right, that their goal was to reduce reliance on foreign sources of oil… then they are a miserable failure because under Joe Biden, we are much more reliant today on foreign sources of oil than we were when he arrived and that sadly was by design. They are destroying American jobs and replacing them with Russian jobs and Middle Eastern jobs, and that's not good for America or for the world.
