Manchin is owned by coal. Heart and soal.
Joey doesn’t care!! As long as his bank account is in the green, he’s OK with it!!
West Virginia, the fishbowl of power, greed and the dole.
Why do you think he lives on a yacht?…..
As John Denver sang a half century ago: West Virginia, mountain mama, take me home. flooded roads…
Thanks to our tax code, the rich, their children and grandchildren, and great-grandchildren will be safe from suffering the consequences of their forefather’s greed.
Tell me again the advantage to having a Congress that only the wealthy — or those sponsored by the wealthy — can afford to run for office.
Is that the “Blue Wave” we are expecting doing the election in November ? Hope so.
Almost Hades, . . . West Virginia…mowed off mountains, ..toxic water rivers…..life is hell there. .
Under Trump total coal mining employment started at 51,000 in 2017 and was 44,000 at the end of 2020.
Going 180̊ against his constituents’ wishes, he’ll be voted out in the next election.
And gawd help WV if they elect another treasonous, lickspittle Republican.
And again with MT Bill’s obsession with “free stuff”…
Yeah, this toon says it all about the hypocrisy of Manchin and his support for the coal burning industry. West Virginia is very susceptible to flooding and with the CO2 levels rising from coal burning and the resulting climate change seriously affecting rainfall numbers, Sen.Manchin can ill afford to make matters worse. But, he likes having the coal companies donations to keep him in power, so he looks the other way while his people suffer.
The use of coal was declining even before Trump was president and continued ever since. We should be helping coal miners with early pensions for the older ones and retraining for the younger.
Holding back an infrastructure bill that will save his state. Too bad there aren’t two Republicans that want some attention for voting for the infrastructure bill and steal the spot light from Manchin and Sinema.
Then again, until it goes to vote we just don’t know. Wouldn’t that be a kicker.
It will be a while before West Virginia has ocean front property, but half the state will be washed away in violent flash floods long before then.
As long as his coal money checks keep clearing the bank, I’m sure he’ll continue to not care.
Of course he is happy. He is rich white man who has maximized his investment portfolio. He is probably having an orgasm.
He won’t be happy until that’s the whole world. And his beloved republicans are back in power.
