Cavanaugh: Biden’s handling of the economy – incompetent, criminal, maybe both

Updated: May 16, 2023


The ripple effect of record inflation and high gas prices has put the nation’s economy in a dangerous place, according to Twinkle Cavanaugh.

Cavanaugh, president of the Alabama Public Service Commission, spoke to Yellowhammer News recently about how President Joe Biden’s decisions on energy policy have dramatically affected the health of the economy.

“Joe Biden knew or should have known that killing America’s energy production would be lethal to our economy,” she said. “Biden’s handling of the economy is either incompetent or criminal, maybe both.”

She said each decision the first-term president has made has weakened the economy.

“From day one in office, Biden has been a puppet for climate socialists,” Cavanaugh said. “He should fulfill the duties of his office or he should be removed if he refuses.”

Biden recently reiterated his commitment to end oil drilling within America’s borders.

“No more drilling,” he said at a campaign rally for New York Gov. Kathy Hochul. “There is no more drilling. I haven’t formed any new drilling.”

This public proclamation did not sit well with Cavanaugh.

“He obviously hates America,” Cavanaugh said. “God gave America bountiful resources which contribute to the greatness of our country, and Biden refuses to use them.”

Cavanaugh called into question the relationship between Biden and the environmental interest groups who have supported him.

“He has been bought and paid for by climate socialists who want to see the American economy crippled and forced into the dark ages just so they are not the only ones riding bicycles to work every day,” she said. “These climate socialists are a dangerous combination of liberal elites and people so selfish and deluded they have no sense of reality.”

And their attacks on fossil fuels have caused chaos for the nation’s economy, said Cavanaugh.

“When Biden shut down the Keystone Pipeline on his first day in office, that started our fall,” she said. “It immediately became more expensive to transport oil. Then when he instituted his ban on drilling, we were thrown into a full-on energy crisis.

“As soon as the price of oil went up, the price of everything went up. We need fuel to transport every good within our economy. We also use fuel throughout so many of our manufacturing processes. When Biden decided to make oil more expensive, he made everything more expensive. Couple that with his unhinged government spending, and we’ve gotten historically awful levels of inflation.”

Cavanaugh said Biden and the Democratic leadership in Congress have created countless obstacles for the American economy, but she sees one change which could have an immediate effect.

“We need to pull as much oil and natural gas and coal out of American soil as is humanly possible,” she said. “If we want to see our economy roaring again, we need to maximize the potential of America’s natural resources. Our foreign adversaries sure don’t want to see us doing that. Biden is our enemies’ best friend, right now. That has to change.”
