Rep. Alex Mooney calls out Sen. Joe Manchin on support of ‘Inflation Reduction Act’

Read Rep. Alex Mooney’s commentary here

WHEELING – U.S. Rep. Alex Mooney, in an exclusive guest commentary provided to The Intelligencer and Wheeling News-Register, called out Sen. Joe Manchin’s support of the “Inflation Reduction Act of 2022” ahead of Manchin’s scheduled appearances on the Sunday morning news shows.

Mooney, R-W.Va., said Manchin’s support of the act would harm West Virginia’s coal industry through new taxes. He also said subsidies for electric vehicles included in the act would prioritize “handouts to rich California elites to buy expensive battery-powered vehicles on the backs of hard-working West Virginians.”

“Make no mistake, Sen. Manchin is betraying West Virginia and destroying our economy,” Mooney wrote in what may be one of the opening salvos in a potential 2024 U.S. Senate race between the two candidates.

Manchin, D-W.Va., is scheduled to appear today on all the Sunday shows today — ABC’s “This Week;” NBC’s “Meet the Press;” CBS’ “Face the Nation;” CNN’s “State of the Union;” and “Fox News Sunday” — to discuss his support for the “Inflation Reduction Act of 2022.”
