Joe Manchin shames federal government’s wasteful spending: ‘We have not been fiscally responsible’
Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.V., speaks with Maria Bartiromo about government spending and Biden’s dependence on China to implement a green energy agenda.
Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.V., said he is in the process of setting up a meeting with House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., to rein in the federal government's wasteful spending and to focus on possible permitting rules that could potentially open West Virginia's Mountain Valley Pipeline.
"I think what we have to do is realize that we have a debt problem," he told "Sunday Morning Futures" anchor Maria Bartiromo at the Davos 2023 summit.
"All we're saying is, should we not make sure we all recognize how we got there? How we prevent from going further?"
Bartiromo noted that Republican lawmakers' wishes to revert to 2022 spending levels could signal a $75 billion cut for defense funding, but Manchin remains "committed" to making sure Ukraine had the tools needed to wade through its war with Russia.
