You know what might be more useful and very telling reporting? Digging into why most DC Democrats don’t support that.
You say this like it's a bad thing?

“Republicans pounce on common sense” is what this has come to.
If America produced more oil domestically, we'd be less dependent on unstable foreign sources, drive prices down, and in a position to help allies in times of shortage.

I'd rather have lower fuel prices and be energy independent instead of handing Putin any more $$ for his crappy oil https://t.co/KgpcibUR8U

Remember: if you give $20 to the Canadian truck convoy, you are a terrorist. But if your government buys fossil fuels from a guy like Putin, it’s totally OK. https://t.co/O2TL3vCRPU

And Twitter still allows Putin to have an account.
