Joe Manchin‘s inaptly named “Inflation Reduction” bill doubles the tax on coal. He’s supporting changes that double the tax on coal from 50 cents to $1.10. What do his constituents from West Virginia think of that? These are his own people.
In Section 13901, the bill increases the tax per ton on underground mines from 50 cents to $1.10 and on surface mines from 25 cents to 55 cents.
He comes from a coal state! Additionally, it will raise everyone’s electricity.
We are destroying mining, oil drilling, manufacturing. Then we’ll buy all our solar parts from China. This is insane.
Manchin, a senator from WEST VIRGINIA, has included a COAL TAX HIKE in his bill.

Fossil fuels was WV’s biggest industry but the Dems had already begun to destroy it (thanks goes to the reign of Barry!); medicine was one of the top employers in the state, but WV’s healthcare system is nearing a breaking point, partly because of the left’s COVID-19 mandates; cattle and dairy products are important in the state, but the left’s global-warming fanatics want to get rid of farting cow gases that contribute to Earth’s so-called global warming; and WV has a drug epidemic because of low-paying jobs, a high rate of unemployment, and the easy access to Mexican drugs, coming through the open southern borders of the US.
Senator Manchin has done nothing to solve any of the problems in his state. With the tax increase on coal, he will finish destroying his already poor state of West Virginia.
This is very curious on Manchin’s part; I wonder what he was promised or how he was intimidated.
Guy needs a good slap and then some.
My hunch is that he has decided to not run again in 4 years. He lives on a $2 million yacht, I doubt there are oceans in West Virginia.
Manchin Bill Double-Dealing.
