    Sen. Joe Manchin Saturday demanded President Biden apologize for saying
    coal plants "all across America" will be shut down, in a scathing
    statement just days before crucial midterm elections.

    "President Biden’s comments are not only outrageous and divorced from reality, they ignore the severe economic pain the American people are
    feeling because of rising energy costs," Manchin, D-W.Va., said.
    "Comments like these are the reason the American people are losing
    trust in President Biden and instead believes he does not understand
    the need to have an all in energy policy that would keep our nation
    totally energy independent and secure."


    Biden Friday called coal plants too expensive to operate, and said
    renewable forms of energy will replace them.

    "No one is building new coal plants because they can’t rely on it. Even
    if they have all the coal guaranteed for the rest of the existence of
    the plant," Biden said.

    "So it's going to become a wind generation," Biden continued. "And all
    they're doing is it’s going to save them a hell of a lot of money and
    using the same transmission line that they transmitted the coal-fired
    electric on, we're going to be shutting these plants down all across


    That statement will cost Biden's party a lot of votes.

    Coal fired generating plants employ workers from all the trade unions,
    and are in a constant state of upgrading, and maintenance.
