A Democrat Senator who is not even up for reelection this year says he is ready to repeal Obamacare.
Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) told a group of his constituents in West Virginia last week, "I will vote tomorrow to repeal (Obamacare)." This is the first time that a Democrat Senator has uttered the words that he is willing to repeal Obamacare. You can find out more about Sen. Joe Manchin wanting to repeal Obamacare here.
If a Democrat who is not in danger this election season is willing to abandon the failed health care takeover, just imagine what the Democrats who are up for reelection are truly feeling.
Obamacare has caused millions of Americans to lose their health insurance already and millions more are expected to lose their insurance plans in the coming months.
Americans were promised that premiums would go down by $2,500 a year and they have instead skyrocketed. Obama also publicly promised dozens of times that you could keep the doctor of your choice and that was also a lie.
Democrats know that Obamacare is quickly unraveling and they are running scared. Manchin's admission to vote to repeal Obamacare proves this. McClatchy newspapers are reporting that dozens of liberal candidates are now "inching away" from Obamacare because many House and Senate Democrats know that they stand a very good chance of losing their jobs because of this awful law.
If Americans can convince a handful of vulnerable Senate Democrats to vote for repeal, we will be able to get rid of Obamacare before the election even happens and before it hurts any more Americans. You can help convince Democrat Senators to repeal Obamacare by clicking here.
Americans should not have to wait until after November to repeal Obamacare. An additional 20 million Americans are projected to lose their health insurance plans in the coming months and waiting until after the election will only ensure that more of our neighbors will be hurt.
With Senate Democrats beginning to abandon Obamacare, we have a real chance at repeal now. Most of the Republicans will vote to repeal Obamacare if it comes to the Senate floor. We just have to convince enough Democrats to join them and then we can send Obamacare directly to the scrap-heap where it belongs.
