Our campaign released a new video message today highlighting the crippling effects of Joe Biden and Sharice Davids’ energy policies, namely the high gas prices negatively affecting Kansas families and businesses. The video will run as a digital ad across the Third District and can be viewed by clicking below:
While offering solutions to help Kansans in the video, Amanda criticizes the Biden Administration’s American energy restrictions that Davids supports. Unfortunately, their policies are costing the average Kansan more than $600 this year. “Sharice Davids and Joe Biden have made us more dependent on foreign sources of oil, including countries like Russia and Iran. America needs stronger economic growth and strategic partnerships,” Amanda states on camera.
We hope our video message will be a refreshing contrast to Davids’ federal gas tax holiday ‘solution.’ As of March 8, the day Davids voted against American energy independence, the national gas price average was up $0.55 from the prior week. The federal gas tax is currently $0.18/gallon, and the holiday would barely dent inflated gas prices. As she continues voting against permanent solutions to make energy more affordable for her constituents, it is becoming increasingly clear that this holiday is a political gimmick that leaves Kansans paying an additional $0.37/gallon while mistakenly thinking Davids is attempting to solve the crisis.
Davids’ 'plan' has been disparaged by transportation groups and provides little, temporary relief to her constituents. Amanda instead addresses the root of the problem and presents solutions that will bring gas prices down $2/gallon, not save Kansans just $2/week.
We will keep asking Kansans the same question Amanda asked at the beginning of the video: “Are you better off?” We know that Kansans will realize that when it comes to gas prices, they are not better off with Sharice Davids representing them in DC.
