Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) is calling for another Operation Warp Speed —this time, for American energy independence. The Senator shared her call to action on Twitter Tuesday morning.
“Operation Warp Speed certainly worked for getting a vaccine to market quickly when President Trump challenged both our federal agencies and the private sector to solve the problem ‘how do you get a vaccine to market quickly,” Blackburn says in the video.
“So let’s do this, President Biden. It’s time for Operation Warp Speed to address American energy independence. Let’s challenge our federal agencies and the private sector to say ‘how do we get more oil, more gas, more electricity into the pipeline so that America truly is energy independent.”
