BAKING CLIMATE CHANGE

What’s that smell from the oven?

politico.com via Daily Kos:

“[Manchin] has sabotaged the president’s agenda,” Sanders (I-Vt.) said on ABC’s “This Week.”

[…]Manchin’s reluctance to pass the [Democrats’ party-line spending] bill after months of negotiations has infuriated Democrats who contend the spending bill is desperately needed to fight climate change.

Sanders on Sunday did not hold back his frustration, claiming that “people like Manchin” are “intentionally sabotaging the president’s agendawhat the American people want, what a majority of us in the Democratic caucus want.”

“The problem was that we continued to talk to Manchin like he was serioushe was not,” Sanders said. “This is a guy who’s a major recipient of fossil fuel money, a guy who has received campaign contributions from 25 Republican billionaires.”

Why Does He Not VOTE WITH HIS PARTY?  I reckon one reason is that money talks loud.  His pockets are stuffed with  the most funding from  fossil fuel PACs,  From May 2020 to May 2021 he received the most funding from the oil and gas industry of any senator, including $1.6 million in donations from fossil fuel PACs…

NAN SEZ;  That’s in addition to others sabotaging our democratic way of life.  Will the people wake up in time?
