SCALISE: Hardworking Families Are Paying the Price for Biden’s Socialist Agenda

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.26.21

Congressman Steve Scalise ripped his Democratic Colleagues from Capitol Hill Tuesday, saying hardworking Americans are the ones paying the price for Joe Biden’s socialist agenda.

“Hardworking families are paying the price for all of these crises that have been created by President Biden and his big-government socialist agenda. Whether it’s inflation, renovating their houses, they’re waiting longer for things, they’re paying more at the pump,” said Scalise.

“The border crisis continues… They won’t even be transparent about the numbers,” he added.

Americans continued to sour on Joe Biden’s presidency over the weekend, with a new poll from Gallup showing his approval rating falling faster than any other Commander-in-Chief since the Second World War.

His 14-point plunge from 56% approval to 42% in just nine months is the biggest since Harry Trump assumed office following the death of Franklin Roosevelt in 1945.

“President Joe Biden’s job approval rating is holding steady at 42% after a sharp decline in September. His public support has fallen 14 percentage points since June, including a six-point drop last month,” writes Gallup.

 

 

“Biden began his term with relatively solid approval ratings, ranging between 54% and 57% from January through June. His approval dropped to 50% in July and 49% in August as coronavirus infections surged in the U.S. The chaotic U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan in late August, which included the deaths of more than a dozen U.S. military personnel in a terrorist attack at the Kabul airport, was likely the reason Biden’s September job approval rating fell further to 43%,” adds the polling outfit.

CARTER 2.0: Southeast Gas Stations Ration Fuel, Cars Line-Up, Drivers Wait for Hours

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.12.21

Americans in the southeastern section of the country had flashbacks of the 1979 Oil Crisis this week when gas stations began rationing fuel in the aftermath of a major cyberattack against a pivotal pipeline.

“The closure of the 5,500-mile Colonial Pipeline, which carries more than 100 million gallons of fuel from Texas to New Jersey each day, has stretched into its fifth day,” reports the New York Post.

“It sparked wild scenes of panic buying across Georgia, Florida, Virginia and South Carolina — with North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper and Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp even declaring states of emergency in their areas. Kemp also issued an executive order suspending Georgia’s gas tax through Saturday to help offset the costs of higher fuel prices,” adds the newspaper.

“I DON’T HAVE ANY GAS AND THE STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA DOESN’T HAVE GAS!! WHAT IN THE 2021 IS GOING ON !!” one panicked driver tweeted.

“I’ve seen all these cars waiting and I was like, ‘OMG. I have to fill my tank up!’” said another.

A cyberattack against a major energy pipeline along the East Coast caused fuel shortages in states like Florida, Virginia, and South Carolina Tuesday as security experts scrambled to get the key piece of infrastructure back online.

“Drivers along parts of the East Coast are feeling the immediate effects of the shutdown of the Colonial Pipeline following a ransomware attack, reports CBS News’ Laura Podesta. Some waited an hour or more on lines at gas stations before filling up or learning the pumps had run dry,” reports CBS News.

“It was unbelievable. When I was driving today, I thought it was a catastrophe coming! I’ve seen all these cars waiting and I was like, ‘OMG. I have to fill my tank up!’” said one local in South Carolina.

Gas prices jumped six cents within 24 hours, raising the national average to nearly $3 per gallon.

“If this outrage goes past the end of the week … prices could spike pretty dramatically,” said Kevin Book of Clearview Energy Partners.
