Schumer Getting Blasted After Broken Promise

"Nobody is taking away your gas stove," is what Senator Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) told people on February 3.

Well, guess what? New York has just banned gas stoves.

Now everyone is calling out Schumer for making that statement when gas stoves are no longer permitted in New York, reports Fox News.

Another Lie

When Republicans got their hands on some regulations that the Biden administration was considering, they immediately made it known that Democrats wanted to ban gas stoves.

They were doing this on the premise that gas stoves are a health risk.

When the GOP made it a prominent talking point, Schumer responded on Twitter, stating, "Nobody is taking away your gas stove. Shameless and desperate MAGA Republicans are showing us they will cook up any distraction to divert from real issues the American people want solved, like the debt ceiling."

On Wednesday, the New York legislature passed its annual budget, which included a clause that would ban gas stove hookups in some residential buildings by 2026, and in larger buildings by 2029, reports CNN.

That would make New York the first state to ban gas stoves. (There are some cities that have already banned them outright or have restrictions in place regarding gas stoves.)

Rep. Bill Huizenga (R-MI) responded, "How many things can [Schumer] get wrong in one tweet?

"NY has moved to ban gas stoves in new builds. Meanwhile the [House GOP] has passed the Limit, Save, Grow Act to raise the debt ceiling, rein in spending, protect Social Security, and preserve VA funding. What a #SchumerSpecial."

Rep. Max Miller (R-OH) also responded…

Daniel Turner, the executive director of Power the Future, also fired of an attack, tweeting, "New York Senator Chuck Schumer in February: 'Nobody is coming after your gas stove.'

"New York State in May: Becomes the first state to ban gas stoves."

Republicans do have legislation on the floor that would federally protect gas stoves, but they would need that to pass the Senate. With Senator Manchin (D-W.V.) still feuding with the White House, we would only need one more Democrat to cross over, so it may have a chance.

Even if that law passes, however, this would probably end up in court for a challenge as to what the federal government can restrict in local jurisdictions. Something tells me that the federal attempt would fail against state and local laws.
