ermont Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders on Thursday promised to oppose the passage of energy permitting reform as part of a side deal between Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin.
“I rise this morning to express my strong opposition to the so-called side deal that the fossil fuel industry is pushing to make it easier for them to pollute the environment and destroy our planet,” Sanders said, according to The Hill. He further labelled the agreement as “a huge giveaway to the fossil fuel industry.”
“Really, at a time when climate change is threatening the very existence of our planet, why would anybody be talking about substantially increasing carbon emissions and expanding fossil fuel production in the United States?” he asked.
In exchange for his support in passing the $740 billion Inflation Reduction Act, Schumer agreed to support a separate measure to reform the permitting process for energy projects that would benefit Manchin’s home state.
Bernie Sanders: Nasty, old Federal Tit-Sucking Parasite with bad breath and BO who’s never done a lick of real work in his pathetic Commie life!
Manchin screwed up here. He should’ve made sure his bill with Schurmer passed both houses and was signed by Puddin Head “Da, What’s my name?” before the ALBATROSS that will send us into another 1929 era depression was passed.
Pogo nailed it. Manchin trusted the wrong folks (Hint: Democrats) and looks like a naive dummy.
Never trust a Democrat to keep their promise after you give them what they want.
Traitors trusting traitors. kind of funny, actually, or would be if he hadn’t betrayed us all and caused the death of millions in the coming global depression and subsequent war…
Manchin, Schumer, and Sanders are all part of the same party – believe me, they all know each other, each others’ corruptions, each others’ foibles, and each others’ treasons.
The Globaloney “Climate Change” is a vast, nefarious hoax and this accord is a way to fuck the American taxpayers and enrich Manchin, Schumer, and Sanders – Sanders “opposition” is simply a maneuver to get more swag – he’s a lying, thieving hypocrite and the entire Senate knows it.
See how they refer to Sanders as an “Independent?” Disingenuous at best, propagandic more likely, as he ran for Presidunce as a Demonrat, calls himself a socialist, and performs as a Nazi.
izlamo delenda est …
now there will be a side deal with Sanders that someone else will object to. Then there will be a side deal with THAT person, and so on, and so on, and so on and none of it will be known to John Q. Public.
THat’s why i hate them all.
give him another vacation home, he will come around.
Fuck ’em all…
“Fossil fuel” stop right there. Are there people still stupid enough to believe that oil came from dinosaurs?
Make no mistake these demons plan on eliminating a great portion of the population of the Earth, they know exactly what the plan is. They’re in a big club and we’re not in it.
Vermont “independent”….Yeah, right.
Only a damn dumb-ass, disingenuous democRAT (or self-proclaimed Communist in Bernie\\\’ case) would define \\\”energy reform\\\” as shutting down our own domestic production of oil in favor of buying oil from other nations, then using even more oil to ship it here!
Something went wrong in posting. Those backslashes are not mine!
Backslash test for TRF…
“Quote’s” backslash maybe with Apostrophe’s backslash?

Yeah, and you got three “\\\.” Some have only gotten two. But something tells me it’s an Apple browser thing somehow (probably server-side).
