Dem. Senator Manchin ‘Raisin Hell’ After Sticking His Neck For Biden

During President Biden’s two divisive and highly partisan years in the Oval Office, West Virginia US Senator Joe Manchin has cast a few controversial votes going against the wishes of his conservative constituents back home in the Mountain State.

In a new report, Joe Manchin is reportedly furious with how the Inflation Reduction Act is being implemented by the Biden administration.

Manchin said, “I just totally and absolutely am disagreeing with what they’re doing” and is “raising hell.”

Politico reported:

President Joe Biden and Joe Manchin met at the White House about a month ago on a topic that’s critically important to the West Virginia senator: implementing the sweeping tax, climate, and health care law that both men shaped.

And if you ask Manchin, things have not gone well since that huddle. That’s because the West Virginia Democrat is livid about how his party’s president and his administration are rolling out a party-line bill that served as a crowning achievement for both men — and he’s particularly peeved at a delay in new guidelines on who gets the law’s generous electric vehicle tax credits.

He’s even talked directly to Yellen several times about the matter. Summing up his approach of late, Manchin said: “I’ve been raising hell.”

A frustrated Manchin is nothing new for Democrats, but the current situation is plainly untenable for them. He’s still undecided on reelection next year in a state that’s critical to keep their Senate majority. And as Energy Committee chair, he has the power to wreak havoc by slowing down nominees, hauling in Biden officials for public testimony, and pushing legislation against the administration’s wishes.

Manchin is also frustrated with the administration’s increased push to eliminate fossil fuels. If successful, it would destroy the main driver of his state’s economy and slash employment opportunities.

Fox News reported:

Manchin’s Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) grievances go beyond the EV tax credits. He sees his party promoting the law as a “climate change-fighting one” rather than an “energy security measure” he believes it truly is.

Politico noted that of late, Manchin has been touting “the power of the bill he wrote in order to puncture Democratic hopes of ending U.S. reliance on fossil fuels.”

He saved some harsh words for Democrats who would promote the law to make this transition. The outlet quoted him saying, “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?”

He added, “I will continue to fight and I’ll do everything I can to make sure the public knows what they’re doing and what it will do to you and your economy and your lifestyle.”
