Here’s what he said.
According to Breitbart News, Sen. Joe Manchin slammed Democrats stating that his own party has left his state of West Virginia behind.
“We have many of our lawmakers in Washington and we have many people who believe just quit using fossil, that’s all, that’ll take care of the problem,” Manchin said. “It’s called global climate. It’s not called North American climate. It’s not called West Virginia climate. It’s global climate, and there’s more fossil being used in the world today than ever before, and it’s not, it’s not receding. They’re going to use whatever fuels they have in their backyard.”
“I said, I can tell you how West Virginia feels. We feel like the returning Vietnam veteran. We’ve done every dirty job you’ve asked us to do. We never questioned, we did it and performed well,” Manchin stated. “Now all of a sudden, we’re not good enough. We’re not clean enough. We’re not green enough. We’re not smart enough. You want to know why they quit voting for Democrats? That’s the reason.” You can read the full article here.
