Texas Rep. Roger Williams offers one estimate of household costs from Biden energy policies
As President Joe Biden attended the United Nations conference on climate change and promised to cut U.S. greenhouse gas emissions “while making it more affordable for consumers to save on their own energy bills,” a Republican congressman from Texas claimed the opposite.
