Manchin Reacts To Biden's Budget Proposal

Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia recently reacted to President Joe Biden's budget proposal, and it was brutal.

Manchin reacted to Biden's budget request by stating that trying to pick winners and losers on energy won’t work.

Manchin said it’s impossible to have energy security "unless you’re producing the oil, gas, and coal that you need cleaner and better than anywhere in the world."

Manchin Drops Hammer On Biden's Budget Proposal

"Fox Business Network D.C. Correspondent Grady Trimble discussed provisions in the budget proposal, including the elimination of oil and gas subsidies," reported Breitbart News.

Trimble played a clip that included Manchin saying, "You start picking and choosing and trying to penalize. It’s just not going to work. That’s not going to fly."

"You cannot run this country if you’re not energy secure," Manchin added.

"You can’t be energy secure unless you’re producing the oil, gas, and coal that you need cleaner and better than anywhere in the world," Manchin added.

Additionally, Manchin discussed tax rates, "We have to be fair across the board. Before you start raising taxes, find out what it will do to the economy, okay? But, on the other hand, make sure everyone’s paying their fair share."
