Democrat Senator In Full Retreat: 'I Will Vote Tomorrow To Repeal' ObamaCare (If It Will Save My Job)
You know Democrats are getting desperate when they throw ObamaCare completely under the bus. Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) said this week that he now supports getting rid of the troubled healthcare law entirely.
“I will vote tomorrow to repeal [the Affordable Care Act], but I want to fix the problems in it,” Manchin told an audience in his home state.
To his credit, the senator said in July — before ObamaCare's disastrous rollout — that he thought it needed more than just minor tweaks. “This is not a trim job,” he said of what he called needed changes to the bill. “This is a pretty good haircut that has to be looked upon.” Then, in November, he added this:
"[ObamaCare] is “more than a rollout problem — there is a product problem.”
Still, watching Democrats come around to the stark realization that, as was the case in the 2010 midterms, they may very well face a comeuppance in November is fascinating.
