CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Ask Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., about almost anything, and his answer sidles over to “pre-existing conditions.”
Why did he vote to preserve the Affordable Care Act? To protect people with pre-existing conditions.
Why did he vote against the GOP-backed tax reform package? Because it repealed the ACA’s individual mandate to purchase insurance, which exposed it to a lawsuit filed later against it, which targets people with pre-existing conditions.
