In Case You Missed It – What Did He Think They Would Do?

Senator Joe Manchin’s support for the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) proved to be controversial, especially among his constituents in West Virginia. After months of debate with Democratic party members and promises from the president on the legislation, it was signed into law only after Manchin pledged to support it. President Biden and others assured Senator Manchin that supporting the law puts the U.S. “on track to energy independence.”

The senator is reportedly “livid” with how President Biden has begun implementing the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA). Politico reported Thursday that Manchin has been “raising hell” on Capitol Hill over how the Biden administration is rolling it out. 

In a blistering statement, Manchin torched Democrats who view the act as a vehicle to fight climate change rather than an “energy securing measure.” He said, “This is bulls***. So they’re gonna basically starve us out of energy that we have a tremendous, abundant supply of because of their aspirational thoughts?”

Why is he surprised? They needed his vote. They couldn’t care less about him now.
