Hillary Clinton said she was going to take coal miners jobs away. Bill Clinton talked down to the people of West Virginia. Democrats threatening to shut down in order to fight for benefits for coal miners…irony?

Democrats along with Sen. [score]Joe Manchin[/score] want to extend health care for retired coal miners and their spouses after they tried to bankrupt the industry.

Whoa, dang. Time to break out the popcorn and wait to watch the media line up to excoriate the Dems for shutting down the government.

From Washington Examiner:

The Senate is poised to remain for a weekend session to resolve a dispute over how long to extend health care for retired coal miners and their widows.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., moved Thursday afternoon to advance a short-term spending bill to keep the government up and running. The dispute could keep the Senate in until next week and threatens a government shutdown.

A stop-gap measure funding the government expires midnight Friday.

Democrats from coal-mining states, including Sens. Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Sherrod Brown of Ohio, have vowed to block the spending bill from coming for a full vote on the Senate floor unless the Senate Republicans agree to a one-year extension of the miners’ health care instead of a four-month extension.

Manchin and Brown have said they don’t want to shut down the government to extract the concessions for miners and would try to use delaying tactics instead with hope that Republicans could provide a temporary funding extension into next week to allow for the final negotiations.

Go ahead you only hurting yourself. Then if you leave for Christmas without a budget, the voting public will remember, the American people are sick of you destruction

Anything that has Sen. Joe Manchin’s name on it is bad. I don’t like him at all. Bad mistake after the EpiPen information came out and he, and his daughter were shown to be so crooked and corrupt! Shame on both of them! Getting rich from people suffering from illness.
