Dem Sen. Manchin Announces Bill for Obamacare Delay on O’Reilly

(UPDATE BELOW) NBC News reported tonight that the White House is planning to delay Obamacare penalties by a few weeks, but Democratic Senator Joe Manchin is now pushing a bill to delay them by an entire year.

Manchin will make the announcement official on tonight’s O’Reilly Factor, according to POLITICO, and Manchin is expected to get questions from O’Reilly over whether he would back Marco Rubio‘s proposal to delay the individual mandate as well.

The Manchin interview was pre-taped, and so they did not address the breaking news that the White House is considering the six-week delay.

UPDATE: Manchin addressed his proposal, a bill he’s working on with Republican Johnny Isakson to delay the mandate, with O’Reilly. Watch the video below, via Fox News:
