Sue gets up at 6 a.m. and fills her coffeepot with water to prepare her morning coffee.

Joe Manchin requirements?

1. Sue cleans all the leftover coal out of her coal-fired stove.
2. Then she has to go out to the coal pile and get the fuel to make the fire.
3. After bringing in the coal, she has to prepare the stove to start AND maintain a fire.
4. Twenty minutes later, the fire is started and the stove is beginning to heat the water to make coffee.
5. However, Sue has to next start the fires to heat the house.
6. An hour later, the home-heating heating coal is beginning to send heat the house. However, the fires will go out if she does not keep the fires going--which could happen if she forgets to add coal to the cooking stove.
7. Just in time for her to make lunch.
8. She would like to go to the store, but her coal-fired car is not very good for what she needs to do.

Meantime, businesses throughout the US have closed due to be required to use to coal for heat, auto fuel, and a variety of other nonsensical requirements where better fuel alternatives already exist.

Manchin was sent to WV to work in the mines. He WANTED the coal, so he has to dig it himself--for everyone else.

Think how fast he is paying off the US National Debt....
