Washington, D.C. – On Friday, President Biden pledged to shut down America’s coal plants. Even Joe Manchin called him out, saying “Comments like these are the reason the American people are losing trust in President Biden,” calling for Biden to apologize to mine workers. “It seems his positions change daily depending on the audience and politics of the day.”
However, two notable Democrats – whose names are on the ballot tomorrow and also in coal states – were silent on the matter.
As reported by POLITICO:
[Senate hopeful John] Fetterman and Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio), who is running for Senate in Ohio, are vying to represent states with a lineage of coal production. Neither had an immediate comment on Saturday on Biden’s remarks.
“At least Joe Manchin has the balls to occasionally stand up to Joe Biden on energy. Can’t say the same about John Fetterman and Tim Ryan,” said Chris Hartline, a spokesperson for the National Republican Senatorial Committee.
Then last night, Joe Biden once again said the quiet part out loud. Speaking in New York, Biden responded to a climate protestors by saying there will be “no more drilling” under his watch.
Joe Biden and Senate Democrats’ anti-American energy agenda is costing American families at the pump and it will cost them at the ballot box tomorrow.
