Dems Double-Cross Manchin On ‘Side Deal’ With Schumer

At a glance

  • In order to secure his support for the so-called “Inflation Reduction Act,” West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin made a “side deal” with Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer to relax energy permitting in a subsequent government funding bill.
  • Dozens of Democrats renounced that deal in a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer.
  • Their letter said that “attempts to short-circuit or undermine the law (on energy permitting) in the name of ‘reform’ must be opposed.”
