California’s Crazy Car Ban Demonstrates the Dangers of Biden’s Bureaucrats

September 1, 2022

California’s massive electric vehicle mandate clearly demonstrates how far unrestrained government regulators can go. By unilaterally enforcing a regulation that no gas-powered car can be sold in the state by 2035, California’s Air Resources Board is making clear why we need to be wary of Biden’s army of unelected bureaucrats.

A slew of states have already followed California in this madness but now one Governor is fighting back. Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin told Fox News that he would fight the insanity coming from the West Coast.

“That’s why I was elected governor, to stop a government that was very comfortable telling people what to do all the time…freedom in fact matters in Virginia…,” Youngkin said according to Real Clear Politics. “And I’m gonna go to work to make sure people can decide what kind of car they want to buy.”

He went on to say: “Here we have this Virginia legislature under Democrat rule last year forget that they work for Virginians and tie them to California. So this is a chance to reestablish Virginians making decisions for Virginians based on leaders they elect.”

That same problem exists at the federal level too. The American people didn’t elect Biden’s activist bureaucrats who are out to kill American fossil energy – like Richard Glick, the chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).  Earlier this year, he led efforts to kill natural gas pipeline projects by forcing a punishing regulation through approvals.

Fortunately, his efforts failed when Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV), John Barrasso (R-WY) and others blasted Glick for his power grab attempts. But California shows just how emboldened and dangerous unelected regulators have become.
