Washington(CNN)Sen. Joe Manchin on Saturday slammed President Joe Biden after he called for coal plants across the US to be shuttered, saying Biden's remarks are "outrageous and divorced from reality" and suggesting it's "time he learn a lesson."
Biden, while speaking at a stop in Carlsbad, California, on Friday about the CHIPS and Science Act, said, "We're going to be shutting these plants down all across America and having wind and solar also providing tax credit to help families buy energy-efficient appliances."
"Comments like these are the reason the American people are losing trust in President Biden and instead believes he does not understand the need to have an all in energy policy that would keep our nation totally energy independent and secure. It seems his positions change depending on the audience and the politics of the day. Politicizing our nation's energy policies would only bring higher prices and more pain for the American people," Manchin continued.
Manchin, a senator from a deep-red state who is up for reelection in 2024,...
Being cavalier about the loss of coal jobs for men and women in West Virginia and across the country who literally put their lives on the line to help build and power this country is offensive and disgusting. The President owes these incredible workers an immediate and public apology and it is time he learn a lesson that his words matter and have consequences," Manchin concluded.
Let's just universally face it. "That feckless dementia-ridden piece of crap" is an absolute political genius!
Thanks for the foist, there Blue MAGA Swampcultists.
