WASHINGTON, D.C. —
In Senate floor speech Wednesday, Manchin reiterated that it’s time to rebuild
America, not Afghanistan. Manchin highlighted a newly announced $94 million project to make Afghanistan’s grid more reliable while Americans suffer at home.
Manchin (D-W.Va.) blasted a new project to provide reliable electricity to Afghanistan while tens of thousands of his constituents are still without power and water nearly two weeks after a major storm.
