Senator Bill Cassidy (R-LA), senior United States Senator for Louisiana joined the Guy Benson Show to call for a new effort to lower energy costs.

Senator Cassidy called for an ‘operation warp speed’ type effort for energy production by saying,

“Think about what happened for Operation Warp Speed for a vaccine. We were told it would take 2 to 10 years. You’re thinking, wait, we’re going to be locked down for 2 to 10 years. And instead, the administration got everybody in a room. But, you know, metaphorically, they said, listen, do you have a problem with this? If you do, work it out with that agency. Okay. Agency number two. Have you solved it? If not, keep working at it. And they’re able to come in. Congress had given them the tools, but they use these tools to do things, you know, in parallel instead of one time after the other. And they actually sped it up. So the vaccine was being given to people ten months after the epidemic began, at least hit the shores of of the United States. We should do the same thing in energy. Right now, we’ve got bureaucrats tying people who are developing renewable energy in knots not just fossil fuel, which is essential to our economy, but all the other projects as well.”
