Show-Me Sen. Hawley Arguing 'Radical Climate Agenda' & American Jobs

A debate that will consume a great many denizens of the discourse who are constantly checking phones and probably not contributing much to the gross domestic product . . . Take a peek:

Missouri Senator Josh Hawley questioned Interior Secretary Deb Haaland Haaland on the Biden administration green energy plan, which he called a 'radical climate agenda,' specifically asking why the U.S. does not mine for resources like zinc, lithium nickel graphite and cobalt.

He said all of these resources could be mined in the U.S., but are instead being outsourced to China.

'Jobs for blue collar workers in this nation are valuable resources. The livelihood and wellbeing of American families are valuable resources. The ability of America to have our own industry and not be dependent on China is a valuable resource,' Hawley said.

'Why should those things for millions of Americans be sacrificed in favor of your agenda for radical climate agenda?'

'I know that there's like 1.9 jobs for every American in the country right now. So I know there's a lot of jobs –' Haaland responded, but was cut off by the Missouri Republican senator.

'Wait a minute, wait a minute. You're telling me we've got too many jobs in the country?' Hawley scoffed with a sarcastic chuckle.
