For most of 2023, Democrats have crowed that Republicans were fear mongering in their claim that Democrats wanted to ban gas stoves.
However, last week that farce became clear to everyone when Joe Courtney and 180 House Democrats voted to ban gas stoves and a host of other everyday items. [Source]
219 House Republicans were joined by 29 House Democrats in protecting natural gas powered stoves, outdoor heaters, fireplaces, furnaces, stoves, grills and water heaters.
This legislation that Courtney and House Democrats opposed protects the 187 million Americans that use gas stoves and ignores the environmental benefits that natural gas provides. Homes that are not completely reliant on electricity emit 22% less CO2 and can save cash-strapped families approximately $1,000 per year.
“Rep. Joe Courtney and Democrats in Congress need to dispense with the gaslighting and extreme policies of the squad and get back to work for the American people,” said Navy veteran and Republican challenger Mike France. “Americans are facing enough problems without House Democrats creating another mandate that will cost families and businesses thousands of dollars.”
