    Whatever, if you break him just keep the receipt because he is payed for by the banks through 2016 and we might get our money back.

    “There’s no way I could not vote for it,” Manchin said at a Bloomberg Government breakfast today. “It’s very reasonable and sensible.”



    Manchin, 66, said he’d be willing to delay the individual mandate as part of the budget negotiations because the Obama administration in July gave businesses an extra year to provide their workers with health insurance.

    “Don’t put the mandate on the American public right now,” he said. “If you know you couldn’t bring the corporate sector, you gave them a year, don’t you think it’d be fair?”

    Manchin also said he’d be willing to negotiate in a debate over raising the nation’s $16.7 trillion debt limit. He said he’d support “efficiencies” in Medicare and Social Security and using most of the savings for debt reduction.....snip~

    Democrat Manchin Breaks Ranks to Back Mandate Delay - Bloomberg

    Uh oh.....it has begun. Democrats are coming out and wanting the Mandate delayed for the Middle Class and the Poor. Not just for the Corporate boys and Unions. Obamacare is facing all sorts of problems and now listen to the Democrats shift.

    Well lets work together to take out whats bad and make it better. Are they getting ready to make more excuses for the American people or what?
    A single man is not a sign of a trend.

    Also delaying the individual mandate would be the dumbest thing that could be done with this law, worse than repealing it, since the individual mandate is a big part of what pays for the law in the first place. Its unpopular sure, but keeping your child on your insurance till he's 26, not being denied for pre-existing conditions, etc is not free.

    What kind of ugly haters would be opposed to their fellow Americans finally having affordable health care?

    Nazis or teabaggers or are they one in the same thing?

    Guess you weren't up on those House Members speaking out. Like the Democrat Nolan leading the charge.....huh?

    So what do you have to say about Obama delaying it for 6 weeks now?

    I wasn't aware but 6 weeks is a lot less than a year, its also understandable given the healthcare.gov problems. I think in general this pill isn't going to get any easier to swallow with time, so no more delays.

    This is comical. The Republicans were demanding the mandate be delayed during the shutdown and all the libs kept sqwaking "settled law! settled law!" to everyone within earshot. Now two weeks later the Democrats begin mumbling about delaying the mandate. FORGET IT! If it's "settled law" it should be enacted as was stated when the bill when through Congress. Since when does the President have the power to just alter large aspects of major government bills as his whim!?

    Two weeks ago the left demanded the law be enacted AS IS! The GOP should now demand the same thing: AS IS.

    yep, someone has to pay for it. Someone out there will be certainly paying for it. True also is a single senator is not a trend. A question to the republicans now gloating. The website will be fixed, then what?
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    7 Senate Democrats support delay. So officially now the majority of Senators support delaying the mandate.

    Heya JM. Yeah that's why I mentioned the House Democrats too.

    Calls to Delay Obamacare Mandate Divide Democrats.....

    In a speech on the House floor Wednesday, Rep. John Barrow, a Blue Dog Democrat from Georgia, called on the president to delay implementation of the law’s individual mandate, which is set to be enforced Jan. 1.

    Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H., asked President Obama to extend the open enrollment period beyond the current date of March 31, 2014, until the website glitches are fixed, arguing that the problems have dampened people’s ability to sign up for the exchanges.

    Sen. Mark Pryor, D-Ark., who like Shaheen is up for re-election in 2014, announced his support for the New Hampshire senator’s call to extend open enrollment in the exchanges and asked the administration to clarify how it would enforce the individual mandate.....snip~
