Appleton, Wis. – Today, Outagamie County Executive and pro-labor populist U.S. Senate campaign Tom Nelson thanked President Biden for moving to ban the importation of Russian oil. This comes on the heels of news reports that Speaker Pelosi is moving up the timeline on considering legislation banning Russian oil. Nelson released the statement below:
“After calling on the Biden Administration to ban the importation of Russian oil over the weekend, I am delighted to hear that they will be doing just that this morning. As I stated previously, this is a matter of national and global security, and the President and Democratic leaders are leading and showing Russia there are consequences for their actions.
“I also fully support this administration’s efforts to investigate Big Oil’s price gouging of Americans that is causing us real pain at the pump and are a direct result of the illegal Russian invasion and the greed of Big Oil now making record profits.”
