Georgia Results Mirror the Nation: Still Deeply Divided

Democrats poised to take functional control of Washington,
but still no mandate for fundamental transformation or Green New Deal

WASHINGTON DC (January 6, 2020) – The American Energy Alliance (AEA) is the country’s premier pro-consumer, pro-taxpayer, and free-market energy organization. Thomas Pyle, AEA’s president, released the following statement in response to the U.S. Senate elections in Georgia:

“Congratulations to the apparent winners of the U.S. Senate elections in Georgia, Ralph Warnock and Jon Ossoff. We look forward to working with them and all members of the 117th congress to ensure that Americans always have an abundant supply of affordable, reliable energy and the 6.8 million Americans who deliver that energy continue to have access to the high-paying, dependable jobs that have enabled them to provide a comfortable life for their families.

“We look forward to working with Rev. Warnock and Mr. Ossoff to ensure that energy is not made more expensive for everyone simply to provide emotional satisfaction for a select few. After all, when energy prices increase, it is the poor, the elderly, those on fixed incomes, and the marginalized who suffer the most. Surely the incoming Congress is not interested in further harming those important constituencies, especially in these difficult times.

“With their apparent victories in Georgia, the Democrats are poised to take functional control of Congress along with the White House. Let us all hope they don’t lose sight of the fact that they will be governing a deeply divide nation with the narrowest of margins in both legislative chambers. That is hardly a license for a fundamental transformation of our economy or the energy system in this country.”
