Sen. Manchin bucks Dems to back
ObamaCare delay -- then walks
back remark

Fox News, by Staff

Democrats may have just lost one of their own in the high-stakes fight over ObamaCare -- or maybe not. Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., a moderate Democrat known at times to buck his party, said Thursday that he´d be willing to support a spending bill that also delays the law´s requirement on individuals to buy health insurance. "There´s no way I could not vote for it," Manchin said. "It´s very reasonable and sensible." Manchin made the comment at a Bloomberg Government breakfast. The comment, first reported by Bloomberg, was later confirmed by Fox News. But hours later, the senator put out a statement

Hey Joe, "...very reasonable and sensible" is not found in the Alinsky playbook.

You´re in over your head, and probably too nice a guy to be hanging around these DC types.

manchin is not a moderate. He is a liberal democrat. manchin´s fake advocacy for the coal industry makes him a contender for the most intellectually dishonest critter in the senate.

He was Booker´ed quickly and sternly, no doubt about it. Sorry West Virginia, your Sen Manchin is owned by the White House, utterly and completely. Keep on votin´ for Dems who carry guns and shoot at trees to be melodramatic, and TALK a good game and see where it gets you. Ultimately, he´s a Donk, like any other Donk. So, how dumb are ya? And BTW, extremely lucky for you all that coal is a viable export product, or you´d be completely sunk now by this environmentally ill regime.

Th only reason this slug gets elected in WV is the because so many still believe the in old days when it was said that D´s are for the poor and the R´s are for the rich. Old ignorance dies hard and back woods slicks like Manchin know it and ride it to bank.

Moderate Democrat = one who makes a Freudian slip, but quickly recovers while scurrying quickly back to the Left with his tail between his legs.

"Moderate Democrat" is a contradiction in terms. An oxymoron. With emphasis on the moron.

If it is true that someone got to Manchin and that Manchin wimped out, that is exactly what epitomizes Washington pols -- spinelessness. Threaten them when they vote or speak their consciences and they fold like a cheap suit.

Cruz was trying to tell Americans and Washington that Congresspeople are supposed to do the will of the people, not the Party.

I wonder if Manchin was surprised when he first landed in Washington and was told that he and his West Virginia constituents opinions were irrelevant and he was there to be neutered into the Party Machine. This could explain some of the obvious substance abuse issues in Congress.

It´s uncommon for progressives to say something and then walk it back.

Yesterday, I heard Rush call ObamaCare a bait and switch plan, and today I read someone use the same expression. All kinds of things were promised that have been walked back: keep your plan - you can´t afford your plan; your kids can stay on until age 26 - your company is cancelling their family plan; keep your doctor - your doctor can´t afford to keep practicing. Anyway, poorly written, but everyone should be told it´s a bait and switch plan when Reid or others tell us it is the law of the land.

#22--I know someone who was invited to one of those pre-election get-togethers trying to drum up contributions for Obama. The campaign worker candidly said that Obama´s health care plan was just a first step towards single-payer. They know it is going to wreck the insurance industry and force employers to stop offering coverage. The government will then step in to "fix" the problem.

Manchin is not a moderate democrat. This is no such thing as a moderated democrat he might be a democrat but didn´t become a communist yet. That´s about all and this WV turkey Joe Manchin had an attack of mental integrity for a second then caught himself.
What´s a ´walk back´? Is that some liberal speak for "I lied and didn´t mean it"? I´m sick of these leftist communist liars.

Interesting that there is a lot of similarity between a moderate Palestinian, a moderate Muslim and a moderate democrat.
For one thing they don´t exist.fo another they all lie and then correct or walk-back the next day.
and recall that legislator that would not vote for ObamNoCare if it contained funding for abortion. Finally he walked-it-back when Obama wrote out some letter and then later ignored the entire thing. But obama got the vote on crap-care.

Manchin is an admiral of sorts since someone provided him with a yacht upon which to host gun control parties for fellow legislators, such as Pat Toomey.
And Sestak, the retired Admiral, Friend of Bill, and once and future candidate for office in PA, makes Manchin look like Barry Goldwater.

#30 -- It´s not that you´re paid so little. It´s that medical services cost so much.

Case in point, from some recent research by members of the L clan: What the local regional hospital pays the manufacturer for an Oxford patellar prosthesis (replacement knee): $5,000. What the local regional hospital charges the patient -- and mind you, this is for the chunk of titanium ALONE, nothing else: $60,000. That´s a 6 followed by FOUR zeroes, or a 1200% mark-up.

Also thank the New Non-Citizens who´ve turned damned near every ER in the country into their free private sniffles-and-scuffs clinic, and the ambulance-chasing shysters for the crushing med-mal insurance rates that have helped make them rich (and ensured their unflagging support of the U.S. Communist Party).

Joe Manchin is a snake. What happened was to be expected. WV is so convoluted. They will vote for a Republican for President, but lose their minds over Democrats for other offices. So strange.

Manchin was elected because of gun control. He was against it in the election, then all of a sudden, after the election miraculously he was for it.

It’s Good Friday. Time for the leftwing president to do something bad. Barack Obama just punted on the Keystone Pipeline, again, and some Democrats say they are angry at him. The Obama administration once again has punted on a final decision for the Keystone XL pipeline, announcing ahead of the holiday weekend it is extending a key review period indefinitely — a move that could push off a determination until after the midterm elections. Republicans, as well as red-state Democrats who want the proposed Canada-to-Texas pipeline approved, slammed the administration for the delay. Democrats even threatened to find ways to

Fellowship Church is led by Pastor Ed Young, who started the evangelical Christian church in 1990 with about 150 people in Irving. They now have 10 church campuses worldwide. His father is Dr. Ed Young, the head of Second Baptist here in Houston.

The Obama administration is extending the agency review period for the Keystone XL oil sands pipeline, potentially delaying the decision until after the November elections -- sparing President Obama a tough political decision in the process. A senior State Department official said agencies have stopped crafting comments because a Nebraska Supreme Court decision could change the pipeline route and, ultimately, the environmental, socioeconomic and cultural factors that went into the environmental review. The official did not directly answer a question whether an altered pipeline route would require a new environmental review.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E.
