"Joe Manchin is lying to us about climate change to protect his annual profits and the wealth of his family"


That is not me saying this, it is legitimate investigative journalism saying it.





This is why Joe Manchin will destroy our deal and kill our environment

Surely someone could offer him $25 million or more for his company so he could do the right thing and save the human race?





Manchin earns hundreds of thousands of dollars each year through coal sales to power plants that supply Edison Electric Institute member companies. His family company, Enersystems, is a contractor of American Bituminous Power Partners (AmBit), a coal power plant located near Grant Town, W.V. that provides energy to Monogahela Power Company, according to documents from the West Virginia Public Services Commission (PSC). Also known as Mon Power, the electric company is a subsidiary of energy giant FirstEnergy and an EEI member.

Manchin founded the coal brokerage Enersystems in 1988 and helped run the company, handing control to his son Joseph upon being elected West Virginia secretary of state in 2000 and reportedly moving his holdings into a blind trust between 2005 and 2010. In Manchin's most recent financial disclosure, covering the fiscal year 2020, he reports that his non-public shares of Enersystems, a "contract services and material provider for utility plants," are worth between $1 million and $5 million, and sent him an income of $492,000. His total income from the company since joining the Senate is more than $4.5 million.



If you think my proposal is silly, think about it like this: if he could be bought out of that industry, there is NO reason for him to oppose the bill and NO reason for him to insist on continuing to harm the environment. This is LIFE and DEATH shit folks...find someone to do it please!

I created two threads on this because it is IMPORTANT and I am fucking serious, can we find someone to do it?



ps We would NOT need Joe and Sinema if any republicans would do the right thing and NOT be traitorous scum, but they ALL ARE!

Who here understands the DRASTIC effect refusing to raise the debt ceiling will have on the market?

I think if more people understood what is about to happen ON PURPOSE by the GOP they would pull 401K, IRA everything out of the market for a short term.


What is about to happen is unprecedented, isn't it? Has the debt ceiling ever not been raised?
