Say It Ain’t So, Joe!
Today, the Politico reminds us that Senator-elect Joe Manchin (D-WV) told a local paper last week that he “agree[s] with health reform.” Manchin went on to say, “Do I agree with everything in this package? No. I’ve always tried to fix things.”
That is very different from his October declaration on Fox News:
The president’s plan — ‘Obamacare,’ as it’s been called — is far too reaching. It’s overreaching. It needs to have a lot of it repealed.
Manchin even left the door open to “repeal[ing] the whole thing.”
What changed? That’s a good question. And one that his constituents will want answered.
