Manchin's Mountain Message Fighting for Permanent Solution for our Miners This week, I joined my colleagues in sending a letter to congressional leaders urging them to include a permanent solution for miners' benefits in the government funding bill Congress will consider next week. The Miners Protection Act is a bipartisan bill that honors the promise of health care and retirement benefits to retired miners and their families who are facing uncertainty as a result of the financial crisis and corporate bankruptcies. As we explained, 22,600 of our nation's retired coal miners are set to lose their benefits if we don't come to a resolution. Last month, these miners received letters notifying them of this impending termination. In West Virginia alone, nearly 8,500 men and women will suffer the anguish and fear that comes with the loss of these life-saving benefits � which our coal miners earned and were promised through their decades of hard work. Also this week, I met with a group of miners in West Virginia to discuss this issue and ensure them that I won't stop fighting until we reach a permanent solution. I won't settle for a temporary fix. Our retired miners and their families deserve certainty, and that's what we must give them.
