Biden's dishonesty is so apparent

Manchin Busts Biden's Energy Lie and Lays out What Can Be Done

Joe Biden has said that he’s doing everything he can to work on the issue of rising gas prices. At the same time, he’s also said there wasn’t much he can do, and has blamed it on Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine. Biden tried to blame it on oil companies, too, claiming they have permits but aren’t drilling enough. Talk about completely not taking the blame or the responsibility for anything.

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) – the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee chair – busted those lies, saying there’s a lot that can be done — starting with getting stalled pipeline permits approved.

Manchin claimed that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) is holding up permits for some projects that could help if they were moved forward.

The senator said FERC is intentionally withholding guidance from permit seekers, saying that when he was governor of West Virginia, he told regulators working under his direction, “If you go out with a cease and desist order before you try to help someone do something right and tell them what they’re doing wrong, shame on ya. Shame on all of you.”

Manchin said that the federal government, through agencies such as the Department of the Interior and FERC, could be providing more guidance, but “they’re throwing so many more obstacles.” [….]

And the senator bristled when asked about Glick’s concerns on projects being pushed through too quickly.

“I’m not saying push them through quickly,” Manchin said, “just do your damn job, that’s all I told him.”
