In recent years we enjoyed a much-appreciated dip in the price of gas; let’s not forget who gave us that or how he did it. Joe Biden has terminated all of it with the stroke of a pen. Not only are thousands out of work but we will all be paying the price soon. If you got used to fuel costing just over $2 a gallon you need to prepare yourself for paying more — a lot more.

The benefits of energy independence shouldn’t rest in an ink pen. They are something that should be negotiated in both houses so possible options can be discussed. It’s called legislation and we vote for people to represent us in such matters.

I’m no attorney, but filing a class-action suit on behalf of thousands who are losing their livelihood sounds appropriate. Sheer incompetence allowed this to happen and the action deserves consequences.

This is what’s expected when the administration is led by an impaired president with blinders on. It’s getting ugly and it’s on the fast track.
