Support for President Joe Biden’s energy policy is wearing thin on Capitol Hill.

Even reliable partisan Democratic senators are starting to raise questions about energy…

“I don’t know that there’s a coherent strategy, and if there is, I think the messages are mixed,” Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine said in a hearing of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Thursday.

“I don’t really believe that the U.S. is full-throated leaning into helping our European allies deal with their energy needs.”

“Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has spiked energy prices internationally, with European governments ending the purchase of Russian energy in the continent.”

“If we’re the largest energy producer in the world and we know that, at least transitionally, our European allies need energy from sources other than Russia, that us going to Saudi Arabia and say, ‘Please produce more energy when we’re not willing to do it ourselves’ — I just don’t get it,” Kaine said, questioning a State Department representative.
