Senator Joe Manchin (DWV) recently called out President Joe Biden in an oped, claiming that his reckless spending policies are afiscal betrayal and are leading to an evergrowing national debt. But Manchins criticism of the Biden administration is too little too late.

Manchins oped, written for the Wall Street Journal and headlinedBidens Inflation Reduction Act Betrayal, lambasted the Biden administration for theirideological agenda and for ignoring theclear and present danger of the nations debt. Manchin complained that he and Biden had initially agreed that the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) was designed to pay down the national debt, but now, according to Manchin,unelected ideologues, bureaucrats, and appointees seem determined to violate and subvert the law to advance a partisan agenda that ignores both energy and fiscal security.

MRC Business and conservative voices have been warning of the dangers of Bidens outofcontrol spending policies for months, including how the $739 billion IRA can lead to inflation and higher electricity and car prices. In response to Manchins oped, MRC Business Vice President Dan Schneider called out Manchin for ignoring monthsold warnings about the IRA and for greenlighting the bill in the first place.

Heritage Foundation economist Diana FurchtgottRoth echoed Schneiders sentiments, adding that the IRA wasnever about reducing inflation, but ratherabout increasing spending on renewables and electric vehicles, which in turnincreases the deficit and raises Americans electricity and car prices.

Manchin argued in his oped that President Biden is the only one whocan rein in this extremism, and his oped was likely a lastminute effort to distance himself from Bidens policies. But its too little too late. Bidens reckless spending policies are already in motion.
