Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) has joined Republicans to overturn a rule from Democrat President Brain-Dead Biden’s administration that seeks to limit emissions from heavy-duty trucks. The move was made possible because Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) is still recovering from the shingles.
Manchin said: “I am proud to support this resolution to stop this government overreach.
“The last couple of years have shown that truck drivers keep our country moving.
“However, the Brandon Administration wants to burden the trucking industry with oppressive regulations that will increase prices by thousands of dollars and push truck drivers and small trucking companies out of business
“When our country faces record-high inflation and vulnerable supply chains, we cannot let the EPA continue to seize unrestrained power and create regulations that devastate our economy.”
The Senate passed S.J.Res.11, Fischer Trucking Emissions CRA, by a vote of 50-49.
Democrat Rep. Ro Khanna (D-PA) was furious over the move and called for Feinstein to step down.
He said: “Because Senator Feinstein was absent, the Senate overturned a Biden rule that would cut pollution from heavy-duty trucks and causes harm to people’s lungs.
“We are putting decorum over democracy and our values.
“It’s time for Senator Feinstein to step down gracefully.”

Woah. Former California Senator Barbara Boxer tells @mehdirhasan that Diane Feinstein needs to return to senate or “consider an early retirement.”
I don’t think anyone’s going to call Boxer ‘sexist’ for voicing what many others have.pic.twitter.com/Le5AXkfB7H
