Do we support it or not?

Brett Tubbs - February 8, 2018

Yesterday, Two-Faced Joe blamed his NO vote for the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act on the fact the bill included a repeal of the Obamacare individual mandate, but that just doesn't make sense. His position on the individual mandate has been all over the place.  Take a look below for how he used to be strongly supportive of repealing the individual mandate. 

So now he claims he voted against the tax cuts because the bill repealed the mandate? This makes no sense.

In 2010, Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) Claimed That He Wanted To “Repeal The [Individual] Mandate Or The Entire Healthcare Law If The [Individual] Mandate Could Not Be Eliminated.”“Manchin said during his 2010 campaign that he wanted to repeal the mandate, or the entire healthcare law if the mandate could not be eliminated.” (Alexander Bolton and Jason Millman, “Dems Up For Reelection Under Pressure To Nix Healthcare Mandate,” The Hill, 1/6/11)

In 2013, Senator Manchin Stated He Had “Always Opposed The Individual Mandate” And That He Had “Concerns With The Implementation Of The Affordable Care Act.” “I have always opposed the individual mandate, and I continue to have concerns with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act and the cost and choices West Virginians will have in the health care exchanges.” (Press Release, “Manchin Statement On Avoiding Government Shutdown,” Sen. Joe Manchin, 9/26/13)

"Manchin continues to contradict himself on issues while attempting to make excuses for his actions. He is making an excuse while he directly contradicts himself and his position on an issue when trying to talk his way out of a bad vote." - RNC Spokesperson Brett Tubbs​
