Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, February 02, 2018

Vice President Mike Pence was in Lewisburg, West Virginia, Wednesday where he gave a speech that tore into Manchin. Pence attacked Manchin's vote against the tax bill and then continued: "But it's not just the tax cut. Senator Joe Manchin has voted no time and again on the policies that West Virginia needs. When the time came to repeal and replace the disaster of Obamacare, Joe voted no. When we empowered West Virginia to defund Planned Parenthood, Joe voted no." As you know, Donald Trump is popular in Manchin's state. Gallup found this week that it's his best state, at 61 percent approval. And Manchin is up for reelection this year (hence Pence's tirade).

Manchin, famous for that ad where he shot the cap-and-trade bill, apologized for nothing. He took square aim at Pence and tweeted: "The VP's comments are exactly why Washington Sucks." Far from giving any ground, he went on the attack in a second tweet: "I am shocked that after the @VP worked for almost a year in a divisive & partisan way to take healthcare away from almost 200k WVians, bankrupt our hospitals & push tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans & huge corporations that he would come to #WV & continue partisan attacks."

Manchin is wrong!

Pence wanted to take away Obamacare.

I am fine with that. I get my health care through the Affordable Care Act.
