Wisconsin’s Affordability Crisis

Rebecca Kleefisch

Wisconsin Right Now

March 17, 2022


Gas prices, energy bills, and propane heating costs are ridiculous. When Joe Biden entered the White House, gas prices in Wisconsin were hovering at just about $2 a gallon. Now? We’re at the $4 mark with no relief in sight. Democrats can’t explain this away because of the Russian invasion of Ukraine; gas prices had increased by a dollar even before then.


For years, Liberals have prioritized woke environmentalism and Green New Deal policies that cripple American energy independence. When the price of gas goes up, those who live on fixed incomes feel the pain the most. The Left couldn’t care less; they keep pushing their radical agendas regardless of who gets hurt. 


Recent conversations uncovered between Gov. Tony Evers and Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer reveal attempts to shut down the Line 5 Pipeline that travels through northern Wisconsin and delivers petroleum to the Midwest.



Evers is a poster child for the Left’s radicalism. Wisconsin’s energy infrastructure is an example. A report published by his climate change task force openly advocates for “avoiding all new fossil fuel infrastructure” including the replacement of pipelines so many Wisconsinites rely on for affordable energy.


Tony Evers caved to left-wing environmental radicals, and he wants your family to bear the costs. 


Evers’ agenda would have been tragic had it not been for conservatives in the Legislature. He tried to raise the gas tax in his first budget by 36%. Then, he tried to pass a $100 million per year tax increase on electricity costs that would have burdened Wisconsinites in every corner of the state. 


Now, Tony Evers wants you to think he cares about your family because he supports suspending the federal gas tax. If he were a Republican, the mainstream media would cry foul and highlight the contradictions. 


Enough is enough. This is being done to you on purpose by weak liberal leaders who oppose cheap energy. Don’t let them get away with it. 


The best way to ensure that Wisconsin and America become energy independent again is to throw liberals out of office this Fall… starting with our weak, ineffective governor, who cares more about press release policies than he does about Wisconsin families. Tony Evers would rather embrace the left’s radical energy ideas than prioritize affordability for Wisconsinites.



When liberal leaders prioritize woke environmentalism over the security that comes with American energy independence, they make your family pay the price. These elitists can’t fathom why working people can’t afford electric cars – while in real America we’re all struggling just with affording gas and groceries.


We need energy independence in America. We need it now. When I’m governor, I’ll put an end to the Left’s games and see that Wisconsin is doing our part to keep your energy costs low.
