Skip to comments.Democrat Joe Manchin: ‘I Will Vote Tomorrow to Repeal’ Obamacare
Posted on 02/21/2014 7:41:32 AM PST by SeekAndFind
A first Democratic senator has indicated he thinks it might be time to scrap Obamacare. While legislators should work to fix the law in the meantime, Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia told Beckleys Register Herald that he would support getting rid of the 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.
He described the law as a product that the government has failed to sell. Manchin made similar comments in November when he said Obamacare was more than a rollout problem there is a product problem.
In July, before the laws troubled rollout, Manchin said that he thought it needed more than just minor tweaks. This is not a trim job, he said of the needed changes to the bill. This is a pretty good haircut that has to be looked upon.
More BS from the left - democrats lie, America dies.
West Virginians should boot this clown for being such a two faced liar. How often does this asshole vote with Harry Reid and Obama? I could’nt care less what this liar says. He will SAY ANYTHING to stay in DC.
Talk is cheap.
Must have noticed his pants were on fire...
“More BS from the left - democrats lie, America dies.”
Exactly. The devious Joe Manchin has been lying to the people of West Virginia for a long time now.
I thought he promised this already and turned after he won?
Apparently Joe Manchin is as well......
Buy a clue, Manchin! Haircuts do not grow into malignant tumors and kill the host.
Given what Manchin feels about Obamacare and what the Obama administration is doing to the coal industry, I can’t figure out why he remains a Democrat.
"Democrat Joe Manchin: I Will Vote Tomorrow to Repeal Obamacare"
A day late and a dollar short. I hope this guy just goes away, I wonder how much more pain and suffering West Virginia will have because of him?
I hope the West Virginians do them selves and the rest of us a favor and vote this lieing bum out.
Well, he's playing WV voters for fools. He voted for it, not having read past the title to see what it entailed. He voted against the effort to stop its funding. He wants to have it both ways. And he still doesn't understand the real problem.
In his mind, it's not that ObamaCare is an abomination as a concept. It's not that it is unworkable because all central planning is unworkable. It's not that people didn't want it in the first place. It's that it wasn't "sold" well. And now the heat's too great for him and he'd repeal it. Sure.
And apparently his lying works - because he continually gets re-elected. Unlikely that he will change his 'winning' formula. Keep cranking out the lies - his voters will buy it.
An empty promise he can make because he knows that Reid will never bring it up for a vote.
Since Harry Reid will never let it come for a vote, he is free to say anything.
His vote put ObamaCare over the top, making Pelosi very happy. That this weasel should get one vote from the citizens of WV after the way Obama has decimated their coal industry is an outrage.
Will he change from D to R? I doubt it.
Manchin is a pathological liar ... the only thing you can really count on is his voting pattern in the Senate: 100% Marxist.
However, the WV Republican Party must take its share of the blame, here. I have NEVER seen them run an effective campaign for ANYTHING.

Are you sure that Manchin is a Democrat?
He sounds EXACTLY like a Boehner RINO !
It sure is cheap, especially when he knows there won’t be any vote on it anytime soon.
In this case “bold talk for a one-eyed fat man” holds true; Manchin talks bold with nothing to back it up or make it true.
Huh-—The Manchinurian one speaketh with forked tongue. Yeh he will vote to repeal OBoozlesCare until weaselly, corrupt Harry (the booty) Reid twists his arm the other way. The 3 R’s in DC that are despicable— Rats, RINO’s and Reprobates.
“Will he change from D to R? I doubt it.”
If the man had ANY integrity, he would do so. The fact that he is staying a member of a party dominated by statists and anti-Americans clearly indicate that much of what he says is a lie. The man is absolutely despicable.
Munchkin was first elected to the US Senate in 2010, to replace the late Bobby "Kleagle" Byrd. He spent two years doing more or less nothing, then got re-elected in 2012. Prior to the US Senate, he was Governor of WV, an office he held with bland indistinction. As to whom he has fooled: among others, the National Rifle Association twice gave him an "A" rating and a glowing endorsement. Following the shootings in Sandy Hook, he stabbed the NRA in the back.
His voting record has been pure 0bammunist.
If you're planning to point fingers, be sure to point some at national organizations like the NRA, which endorsed him and at the WV Republican Party, which twice ran the very nice, very conservative, very lethargic John Raese against him. WV GOP is utterly ineffective.
Perhaps he is aware of the possibility of it changing from D to U (Unemployed).
How many time will Manchin get away with his ongoing double talk? I consider him one of the sleaziest politicians out there, and that says a lot.
Munchkin is up for reelection in 2018.
Manchin is a realist. He knows he’s on a short leash after his gun control escapade. Voting to end Obamacare is his attempt to get back in the good graces of West Virginians.
Same problem as at the national level. Old guard.
More pablum for the low-information voter. Must be election time back in the home state, so its time to dupe the rubes and the sheep. After the duping and lying is done, and re-election is secured, then its back off the DC to do the bidding of the leftists and the bankers.
Oh how long will people continue to fall for this political crap, spewed by both the left and the right (see McCain).
Manchin ought to be hung from a lamppost.
I can only assume he is running for re-election
Not to defend the execrable toad Manchin, but he was NOT in the US Senate when it passed 0bamacare. You can correctly blame his predecessor Bobby “Kleagle” Byrd, and his comrade-in-corruption Jay Rockefeller, for that vote.
I'm not singling West Virginia out. America elected an obvious con-man, Obama, twice. Politicians spew their lies - they are backed by the Media and/or other lobbyist Groups - and We the People, return them to office. Until that changes we will continue to fall deeper, and deeper into the quicksand. It is too late for States like California - the lies have been ingrained as truth, and the dependency on Government largess or handouts has grown beyond the critical mass point that it is doubtful it will be turned back until the system collapses upon itself.
I'm just hoping that the other States can stop swallowing the lies and help right the National Ship of State.
A tacit admission that he screwed up on his original vote.
I would give him more credit if he were actively trying to convince other democrats to vote for repeal.
Correct. The WV GOP seems to have already anointed Rep. Shelley Moore Capito to run for the Senate seat to be vacated by the retiring reprobate Jay Rockefeller. I am not thrilled with this. She's somewhat more reliable than John Boehner ... which isn't saying much. I was supporting Patrick McGeehan for that office; sadly he has dropped out.
He’s the only Democrat I have a smidgen of respect for. He seems more reasonable that the rest of the c**k su**ing Dems in DC.
I bet $10 if the GOP regain control he’ll switch. Think Shelby in Alabama did after ‘94
I am misinformed. Thank you for correcting me. I retract my statement regarding Manchin originally voting to pass Obamacare.
Now, about his NRA votes...
Ummm... Joe, if you repeal it, what is there to “fix”?
You’re lying, as usual.
I didn’t know the Senate had a vote scheduled for tomorrow. It’s Saturday.
The proverbial “Canary in the Coal Mine” just fell off his perch.
Good point ... Our situation in WV in many ways mirrors problems nationally. Part of my point was simply that Manchin hasn't been in the Senate for very long. I can understand how creatures like Bobby Byrd build a powerful reelection machine, and I'm sure Manchin has dreams of building one himself. BUT ... the WV GOP really muffed the opportunity to put a good conservative in the Senate when Byrd croaked. Sort of like how the national GOP completely muffed the opportunity to put a good conservative in the White House when Bam-Bam proved himself to be a complete buffoon.
The Senate website indicates no votes until Monday, February 24th. This story has BS somewhere....
Of course he’s lying. If he votes tomorrow to repeal, he’ll be the only one there. I can’t find a vote scheduled, they won’t be in session.
Yeah ... Chris Cox sure screwed up that endorsement.
Sponsoring gun control legislation is simply beyond the pale ... for that, Manchin deserves an "F" rating ... and NRA should have publicly repudiated its prior endorsement of him.
TOO LITTLE;TOO LATE,A$$H*LE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
lol Is he up for re-election?
And replace it with what? Because you know that a Democrat is not going to allow the health care matter just die.
