If it weren’t for Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin, Biden would have little resistance to his radical plans. Biden wanted to spend over $5 trillion on new socialist programs.
Manchin was only one of a few Democrats willing to freeze Joe in his tracks. Although Manchin has caved in other areas, he seems dead set on halting Biden’s spending spree.
Now, he is blasting Joe for trying to spend even more, as inflation skyrockets.
From Fox Business:
Sen. Joe Manchin said Tuesday government leaders need to stop “searching for where to lay the blame” as inflation reaches record highs, and instead cut spending and expand U.S. energy…
“When will this end? It is a disservice to the American people to act as if inflation is a new phenomenon…
“It demands the administration and Congress, Democrats and Republicans alike, support an all-the-above energy policy because that is the only way to bring down the high price of gas and energy while attacking climate change.”
Sen. Joe Manchin was brutal in his criticism of Joe Biden and the Federal Reserve over record inflation. He blamed the administration for not acting fast enough to confront the issue.
And he was particularly salty over Joe and other Democrats’ desire to spend even more money. As he’s explained before, Machin is against new spending while inflation rises.
He called on Biden, Democrats, and Republicans to prioritize a plan that reduces spending while improving American energy.
Biden’s policies have crippled American energy. His heavy regulations and outright bans have shut down American oil and gas, after years of booming growth.
Manchin’s support for “all-the-above energy” suggests he is in favor of increasing America’s fossil fuel production. That would help us, during this tough time. Increased energy will lower costs and bring in more wealth.
America will be able to supply more energy to the world, just as Russia causes problems in Europe. It’s pretty ridiculous Biden didn’t think of this himself, especially since he’s so keen on blaming Putin for the crisis.
