In response to a tweet published by Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Oregon), radio host Hugh Hewitt illustrates the difference between Senate Democratsâ words and actions regarding climate-related measures.
If this was true Senate Ds would have stripped everything out of #BBB except climate-related measures and added in a huge subsidy for nuclear power plants and research. Voters are not stupid Senator. They donât agree w/ you, and the actions of the @SenateDems belie your urgency. https://t.co/icmk1ggtjH

Merkley declares that the so-called Build Back Better agenda not passing would amount to a âclimate disaster.â
That we still donât have 50 votes tells you how far weâve fallen. Losing Build Back Better would be a climate disaster. We must power everything with renewable energy. I wonât stop fighting for this vision.

Democrats have shown a willingness to use intimidating rhetoric containing the buzzword âclimateâ in an attempt to pass a socialist agenda.
Editorâs note:Â Phrasing in the second sentence of this post has been changed from âamountsâ to âwould amount.â
