Hidden on Page 653 of $433B Climate Bill, Dems Throw Loads of Money Toward Electric School Buses

The Democrats’ agenda for America seems to have two primary objectives: wreck the economy and endanger children.

Now, thanks to Democratic Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Democrats may be able to fulfill those two priorities in one bill.

If a new proposed bill passes, green energy will be prioritized over fossil fuels, undermining industries like coal mining. Details buried in the bill show Manchin’s betrayal of his West Virginia constituents may also enable wasteful spending on “green” school buses for our kids. The problem there is, these electric buses have been unpredictably bursting into flames so hot, fire departments struggle to extinguish them.

The switch to zero emission public transit vehicles is part of a deal worked out between Manchin and New York Senator Chuck Schumer.
