Due to the outcome of the 2020 presidential election and the 2021 Senate runoffs, Democrats are currently enjoying a monopoly on power in the U.S. federal government. While Joe Biden and Kamala Harris control the White House, the Democrat Party controls both congressional chambers.

Democrats aren’t hesitating to make the most of their power. After ramming through a second failed impeachment trial, Democrats in Congress are now looking at new gun control measures. This comes after Biden himself urged Democrats in the House and Senate to push through an assault weapons ban, fresh penalties against gun manufacturers, and more.

However, the decisions that Biden is making as president could very well cost Democrats their current power in Congress. This week, sources confirmed that Republicans will target Democrats in the 2022 midterms elections for jobs lost since Biden nixed Keystone Pipeline.

The Keystone Pipeline factor

National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) chairman Rep. Tom Emmer warned recently that Democrats will suffer the consequences of lost pipeline jobs.
