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 It needs to have a lot of it repealed.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.
