Scalise: Lawmakers Who Call Fossil Fuels ‘Immoral’ Should ‘Stop Using Them Today’

‘I think fossil fuels help save lives, help lower costs, help create jobs and help people have a higher standard of living in America’

BALLASY: “Mr. Scalise, you’ve probably heard some Democrats calling for a ban on gas or diesel vehicles by a certain period?”
SCALISE: “On what?”
BALLASY: “On gas and diesel engines and vehicles by a certain period of time. Would you get behind something like that, banning the sale of those vehicles at some point in the future?”
SCALISE: “No. And, in fact, I would suggest, you know, for those people that say fossil fuels are immoral, I disagree with them, first of all, I think fossil fuels help save lives, help lower costs, help create jobs, help people have a higher standard of living in America. But if they truly think that fossil fuels are immoral, they should stop using them today. They should live by their words and actually practice what they preach. You know, it’s really ironic that the people that are telling you not to fly around on airplanes in ten years are flying around on their own airplanes all around the country, telling you to change your lifestyle but they won’t change theirs. So I think that’s the question that they should be asking.”
