Laffey on Radio! Why do Elected Officials Want to Hurt the Middle Class? I want to Strengthen the Middle Class.
We need cheap energy to run our electric grid, to run capitalism. Yet, many cities are trying to ban natural gas. Why do they want to hurt the middle class?
6:25 Regarding elected officials who are pressing for puberty blockers for teenagers, “They would be forced into resignation if it was 1954, or 1963, or whatever, but now they are heroes to their party, their laughter and joking [about it] is what brings me to such sadness about how they live their life.”
7:30 On cities trying to ban natural gas.
8:43 “Natural gas, when you combine it with nuclear is 60% of the grid. That’s as clean as it gets folks. that’s dependable, that can be turned on can be turned off, 24 hours a day…this is what we need, cheap energy and this is relatively clean.”
