Texas Dems Defy Biden, Champion LNG Exports!

It’s time for a good old-fashioned showdown in the Lone Star State as the battle over liquified natural gas (LNG) exports heats up. President Joe Biden has set his sights on slapping a ban on these energy gems, but don’t y’all fret just yet, because the Texas delegation in Congress ain’t having none of that nonsense.

As President Biden and his posse claim that these exports will drive up energy costs and lead to more methane emissions, our Texas Democrats are taking a stand to set the record straight. They’re pointing to federal data that debunks these wild claims faster than a roadrunner on roller skates.

Nine of Texas’ own Democratic U.S. representatives have hitched their wagons to the cause, urging President Biden to reconsider this harebrained plan. They understand that Texas ain’t just any ol’ state – it’s the energy capital of the good ol’ U.S. of A. Yessiree, Texas leads the charge in oil and natural gas production, shattering records left and right like a bull in a china shop. And in 2017, the U.S. became a net exporter of natural gas for the first time in donkey’s years, all thanks to Texas leading the way.

These Texas Dems even penned a letter to the President, urging him to keep his priorities straight when it comes to LNG exports. They’re preaching the gospel of affordable, accessible, and sustainable energy resources, and they ain’t just blowing smoke, folks. They believe that these exports are the key to unlocking a future filled with economic growth, energy security, and strong international alliances. If that don’t light your fire, then what will?

But hold on to your ten-gallon hats, ’cause the Lone Star State ain’t just about bluebonnets and armadillos – we’ve got some bona fide Texas Republicans in the mix too. Rep. August Pfluger, hailing from west Texas, is taking the fight straight to the ring with his “Unlocking Domestic LNG Potential Act.” This here bill aims to cut the red tape and give the green light to natural gas imports and exports, putting the power solely in the hands of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).

Pfluger ain’t just whistlin’ Dixie when he says there’s a clear presumption that these LNG exports are in the public’s best interest. He’s waving the flag for the Department of Energy, which has already rung the bell with five studies showcasing the benefits of these exports to our economy and domestic natural gas prices. And let’s not forget about the cherry on top – those studies also sang the praises of the environmental benefits. It’s like a good ol’ Texas two-step of good news for our energy future.

But wait, there’s more! Pfluger ain’t mincing words when it comes to President Biden’s LNG export ban. He’s calling it like he sees it – a strike against American energy production. And with his bill getting the thumbs-up from the House with bipartisan support, it’s clear that the Lone Star State ain’t backing down from this showdown.

Now, just when y’all thought the dust had settled, a bipartisan congressional energy export caucus, with Texas’ own Rep. Henry Cuellar at the helm, is saddling up for the fight too. They’re sounding the alarm, warning that President Biden’s ban is letting Russia and our enemies run amok with our LNG exports. Why, they’re waving the red, white, and blue flag and shouting from the rooftops that these exports are critical for keeping our friends close and our enemies at arm’s length.

So, there you have it, folks – the showdown in Texas ain’t just for the history books, it’s a battle cry for the heart and soul of American energy. With Texas Democrats and Republicans joining forces to defend our energy exports, it’s clear that the Lone Star State ain’t backing down from a fight. So, saddle up and grab your Stetson, ’cause this here rodeo ain’t over yet.
