    House Democrats on Wednesday blocked consideration of a Republican bill
    aiming for U.S. energy independence from Russia amid the Ukraine war. A
    former environmental engineer now running for Congress in New Mexico
    condemned the move as "unconscionable" in comments to Fox News Digital.

    "House Dems just voted against a measure by [House Republicans] to
    consider the American Energy Independence from Russia Act -- a critical
    bill that would unleash American energy production," Rep. Stephanie
    Bice, R-Okla., tweeted Wednesday. "Clearly, Dems don't care about
    solving our crushing energy crisis. Unbelievable!"


    Maybe Josh can explain why Democrats are against energy independence.
