Video: Biden Admits It, Obama Lied And Democrats Did A Terrible Job Over This
During a campaign stop in Iowa on Sunday, the former Vice President and 2020 Democrat Presidential primary candidate Joe Biden admitted that Obama lied about healthcare.
Biden was asked a question during the campaign stop and was asked by a teenage boy, “During the run-up to the passage of Obamacare, President Obama promised my father that if he likes his plan, he can keep his plan, and that his insurance will be cheaper,” the questioner began. “After passage, his plan was no longer allowed and his insurance costs doubled. Since you supported the plan, were you lying to my dad? Or did you not understand the bill you supported?”
Biden admitted that most people had no clue what was in the bill and that Democrats did a terrible job rolling it out, he didn’t even try to defend it.
“There’s two ways people know when something is important,” Biden said. “One, when it’s so clear when it’s passed that everybody understands it, and no one did understand Obamacare, including the way it was rolled out. And the gentleman is right, we said you could keep your doctor if you wanted to, and you couldn’t keep your doctor if you wanted to, necessarily.”
What’s scary is Biden isn’t running to fix Obamacare his policy wants to expand it.
“No, look, the fact is that what I’m talking about now is that when — because I get asked the question — since, what I do is I’d add a public option to the existence of Obamacare, meaning that a Medicare-like option is available if in fact you — but there’s 160 million people out there who’ve negotiated a health care plan with their employer that they like and they don’t want to have to give up like Medicare for All requires,” Biden said.
Obamacare has been a complete mess and we have the late Senator John McCain to thank for that, when at the last minute voted no and Republicans failed to repeal the bill.
