Rep. Rosendale Reveals That People In Montana Are ‘Not Pleased’ With Biden
Rep. Matt Rosendale has revealed that while President Joe Biden might be clapping himself on the back for his performance during his first year in the Oval Office, the people of Montana “certainly see things drastically different.”
“We see empty schools because of the mandates that keep our children out. We see rising gasoline prices and energy prices at a time when it’s hitting those who can least afford it. We see chaos overseas…pick a subject matter, and we’re having problems,” he continued.
Many folks living in Montana are also against vaccines and mandates, according to Rosendale, so “no, they’re not pleased with this administration.”
Rosendale also addressed Biden’s comments about breaking the Build Back Better bill down into components, telling Newsmax that the climate change portion of the bill is “particularly troubling.”
“When he says energy, he’s not talking about oil,” said the Montana congressman. “He’s talking about renewables. He’s talking about the Green New Deal … we have rising energy costs. Oil is about $85-$86 a barrel and again, gasoline prices are nearly double what they were when he took office.”
But the “most sorrowful” part of the issue is that the prices do not need to be so high, as ‘we have the resources right here,” said the congressman.
“When Biden took the presidency, we were energy dominant, not just energy independent, and that is where our nation should be,” stated Rosendale.
“It’s good for our economy. It’s good for the jobs, and it certainly is good and safe for national security. And when you start closing down the production of oil and gas resources by eliminating the Keystone XL pipeline and the Michigan pipeline that’s in the process right now being utilized and stopping the leasing of oil and gas resources on federal lands, this is very problematic,” he said.
Meanwhile, Rosendale said he has put forward legislation to address healthcare needs and to expand access and increase quality while driving down costs.
“I brought forward legislation to address the immigration issue,” Rosendale remarked. “We’ve had two million encounters on the southern border. That is nearly twice the population of the entire state of Montana. We’ve got a refugee problem that has not been addressed. We brought 82,000 Afghan refugees into our country, of which only 700 had been vetted.”
Rosendale, who serves as a member of the House Veterans’ Committee, also chatted about the mandate for military members that requires them to be vaccinated against the coronavirus, saying that folks with years of service are now being denied the ability to remain on duty.
“How in the world can you be discharging all of these experienced service members and say that it’s helping the readiness of our military?” Rosendale concluded. “This is a purging of our military is what it is. Call it for what it is. It’s very problematic and I’m pursuing every avenue possible to make sure that we can eliminate these vaccination mandates.”
