Democrat Senator Joe Manchin wears the purple tie today as he answers questions from the DC legislative narrative engineers. There are two videos below. The first is a general presser with multiple members of the DC media (print journos) about the Green New Deal energy bill he negotiated with Senator Chuck Schumer. The second video is an interview between Manchin and Fox News host Harris Faulkner.
Unfortunately, in both the presser and the direct interview no one pins Manchin down on where “expanded energy production” of the bill is located. Manchin claims there is legislative language in the deal that supports the fast domestic production of oil, coal and natural gas to meet the immediate issue of skyrocketing energy prices. However, Manchin is a smooth operator, and he states confidence that rapid and expanded development of oil, coal and gas is part of the deal. WATCH:
Here’s the segment with Harris Faulkner trying to pin him down on tax increases, energy production, inflation and the 2024 election.
