This Is a Troublesome Number for Biden

Eleven Senate Dems Call On Biden To Take Action On Soaring Gas Prices | The Daily Wire

Eleven plus fifty Republicans would be a filibuster proof majority. The Republicans could actually force Biden’s hand on this issue.

In the letter, released by Senator Jack Reed (D-RI), the Democrats urge Biden to explore all available options, including banning crude oil exports and opening the National Strategic Petroleum Reserve, to help lower the cost to consumers at the pump. It was also signed by Senators Bob Casey (D-PA), Patrick Leahy (D-VT), Maggie Hassan (D-NH), Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Ed Markey (D-MA), Tina Smith (D-MN), Chris Van Hollen (D-MD), Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), and Sherrod Brown (D-OH).

“According to AAA, the national average price for a gallon of gasoline is the highest it has been since 2014, with an increase of more than $1 per gallon since this time last year,” the letter reads. “In our home states, high gasoline prices have placed an undue burden on families and small businesses trying to make ends meet, and have proven especially burdensome as our constituents continue to recover from the economic fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Is this the end? Will they do more then just write a letter?

Stay tuned.
