Joe Biden’s War on Fracking Will Kill 609,000 Pennsylvania Jobs


As Joe Biden stumbles out of his basement for a short visit to Pennsylvania, will his handlers again keep him safely away from reporters? If allowed to speak to the the candidate for president, media might ask a simple question: what does he have to say to the 609,000 Pennsylvanians who will lose their jobs under his radical Green New Deal? Biden proudly pledged to “sacrifice” blue-collar energy jobs and promised “no new fracking” in a Biden Administration. He also guaranteed an environmental activist that he will “end fossil fuel.”

One recent study found a fracking ban would suck $261 billion out of the Pennsylvania economy, cripple household income by $114 billion, hike over $4,000 in costs on Pennsylvania families, and kill 609,000 jobs.

Biden recently appointed socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to draft the battle plans for his War on American Energy, signaling to the far left that the Green New Deal is a go. Just yesterday, Biden touted the endorsement of a far-left environmentalist group led by former EPA chief Gina McCarthy, the architect of the Obama-Biden Administration’s war against American energy workers. And last week, Biden huddled with another radical anti-energy group and referred to energy jobs in the past tense.

There’s a reason why Biden oversaw the worst economic “recovery” since the Great Depression – he just doesn’t get it. Biden cannot both embrace the radical left’s crusade to ban fossil fuels while simultaneously promising Pennsylvania’s fracking workers that their jobs are safe. That contradiction explains in part why Joe Biden hasn’t held a press conference in 84 days: he has no good answer.

President Trump, on the other hand, is very clear: American-made energy will help drive the Great American Comeback, and he will always fight to protect Pennsylvania energy jobs.
