Congresswoman Liz Cheney releases statement on President Biden’s Executive Orders

In a press release from her office Wyoming Congresswoman and House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney issued a statement after President Joe Biden signed Executive Orders blocking the Keystone XL pipeline, rejoining the Paris Climate Accord, halting border security funding measures, and more. 

The following is the full statement from Rep. Cheney:

“Today’s inauguration of President Biden and Vice President Harris marks an important moment for us to come together as Americans to combat the unprecedented crises we face.

“The Executive Orders President Biden signed today unfortunately don’t move us in that direction. Rejoining the deeply flawed Paris Climate Accord and blocking the Keystone XL Pipeline will eliminate jobs, increase the cost of energy, and embolden our adversaries. Meanwhile, blocking funding for important border security enhancements, including the continued construction of the wall, lays the foundation for increased illegal immigration. 

“We face significant challenges that require bipartisan responses. Today’s Executive Orders reverse important policies and impose significant economic cost that will imperil our recovery.”

According to the Associated Press, President Biden signed 10 orders aimed at jump starting his national COVID-19 strategy to increase vaccinations and testing, lay the groundwork for reopening schools and businesses, and immediately increase the use of masks — including a requirement that Americans mask up for travel. One directive calls for addressing health care inequities in minority communities hard hit by the virus.

In a press release from TC Energy, the pipeline’s developer, the company announced it is disappointed with the expected action to revoke the existing Presidential Permit for the Keystone XL pipeline. The decision would overturn an unprecedented, comprehensive regulatory process that lasted more than a decade and repeatedly concluded the pipeline would transport much needed energy in an environmentally responsible way while enhancing North American energy security.

The release stated the action would directly lead to the layoff of thousands of union workers and negatively impact ground-breaking industry commitments to use new renewable energy as well as historic equity partnerships with Indigenous communities.

It is called “covering your behind” I think she might be starting to feel the heat from her field offices on her blunder on the impeachment vote…. Note: Trump got over 70% of the votes Ms Cheney, and you are supposed to represent the people who sent you to where you are….. You are a self serving RINO, and it is right the state GOP censored you! Also please take note of the growing move to strip you on committees at the National level………. Your term can’t end soon enough.

Labeling someone a RINO because they don’t go along with the herd is being narcissistic.Going that route if you think she is the only RINO in Wyoming…I have a golf club on the dark side of the moon you can join.

Please support the base that believes it wrong to vote to impeach.
Listening to the speech President Trump made, there was nothing in the content that incited the bad actors. We all know our President is against violence. Maybe you could suggest Biden face his own words now as thousands of unruly and dangerous illegal immigrants are caravanning their way to our country. I wonder how many have been injured, how many police have been violated…all because Biden incited the mass.
And when will Biden have to answer for his lies regarding the corruption he and his son, Hunter, were involved in for years.
Please help lead and support our beloved President Trump away from the hate. He doesn’t deserve it.
Or maybe you should resign.

Really? YOU ALL LOST…get over it and move on.Is that not what y’all proclaimed when Clinton lost in 2016? As for Biden and his clan…they are not nearly as corrupt as the crowd they replaced.
