You know it’s bad when Dems are openly saying they are in favor of repealing Obamacare.

Via NRO:

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 Beckley’s 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.

Zitat
“I will vote tomorrow to repeal [the Affordable Care Act], but I want to fix the problems in it,”



Who cares. Just in this statement alone he is taking both sides of the issue. He wants to repeal. He wants to fix. This is babble from a shady politician to insulate himself from criticism.

Here's what he is really saying....

“I have never supported repealing the Affordable Care Act because I came to Washington to find solutions to our country’s problems. We cannot go back to the days when millions of Americans were uninsured and nearly twenty percent of our GDP was spent on healthcare, while only being ranked 43rd in the world in health and wellness outcomes. The Affordable Care Act does some things well, like expanding access to preventative care, providing access to those with pre-existing conditions, and closing the Medicare Part D prescription drug donut hole, but the law has many flaws. That is why I have supported legislation to delay the individual mandate penalty for a year,..."

Update: On Second Thought, Maybe I Don’t…

I’m guessing Manchin got a not-so-friendly call from Harry Reid and/or the White House.
