(TargetLiberty.org) – Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) tore into John Kerry on Wednesday, accusing the rich Democrat of arrogantly throwing aside the losses of blue-collar jobs destroyed by President Joe Biden’s energy policies.
Talking to reporters on January 27, climate envoy Kerry claimed energy workers had been fed “a false narrative” about why jobs in the coal, oil and gas industries stand to be wiped out in huge numbers. Kerry said it was market forces shutting down those industries, not Biden’s eye-watering expensive green agenda. He went on to say that work in solar power would have been a better choice.
Don’t be fooled by President Biden's claim that climate day at the WH = jobs day. Just because he says it’s “jobs day” doesn’t mean it’s true. Today’s climate EO would result in the loss of over 80,000 blue-collar jobs in Texas — the most of any state.

Senator Cruz, appearing on Fox News that night, blasted Kerry as arrogant and out of touch. Saying “It is not a unifying message,” he told America’s climate policy chief – who owns a private jet – he needed to be fighting for working Americans. Kerry is worth an estimated $320 million.
