Manchin Massacres Biden Over “Outrageous” Coal Plant Closure Comments, “Divorced From Reality”

Senator Joe Manchin is pissed after President Biden said his administration would ‘shut down’ all of America’s coal plants and replace them with ‘wind and solar’ – comments that couldn’t come at a worse time for Democratic candidates in battleground states that are home to blue-collar Americans and the coal plants they work in, given next week’s midterm elections.

Folks, it’s also now cheaper to generate electricity from wind and solar than it is from coal and oil. Literally cheaper. Not a joke. I was just — and so we can accommodate that transition,” Biden said last week during a speech at communications company ViaSat in San Diego County.

“I was in Massachusetts about a month ago on the site of the largest old coal plant in America. Guess what? It cost them too much money.  They can’t count. No one is building new coal plants because they can’t rely on it, even if they have all the coal guaranteed for the rest of their existence of the plant. So it’s going to become a wind generation. And all they’re doing is — it’s going to save them a hell of a lot of money, and they’re using the same transmission line that transmitted the coal-fired electric on.  We’re going to be shutting these plants down all across America and having wind and solar,” Biden continued.
