West Virginian Democrat Lies Thru His Teeth

Senator Manchin (D-WV) hit the crazy pipe hard today as he defended his state's high-polluting coal industry by stating that they don't use a red cent of government subsidies:

Also... Unicorns!  They're totally real.  Promise.

"What I don’t understand is the subsidies. The subsidies of energy, whether it be to oil, gas, wind, solar, biofuels, ethanol. The only energy source — which is the greatest source that we have so far as we’re dependent on — is coal.  It doesn’t get a penny of subsidies. But it’s been villainized by this administration and so many people and it’s the one we depend on the most. It gives back more than it takes. I can’t figure it out."

Of course, what he's forgetting to mention is that coal not only kills thousands of Americans a year but also receives billions in government subsidies.  I mean, it's a bald-faced lie-- who is he kidding when this shit is a matter of public record?
