Joe Biden admits nobody understood Obamacare when they voted for it

January 8, 2020

  There is an old adage that goes along the lines of this, the definition of a gaffe is when a politician accidentally tells you the truth, and that is exactly what Joe Biden did yesterday on the campaign trail in Iowa when asked about Obamacare.

  A man asked the former Vice-President about the now-infamous if you like your doctor lie as well as the line we were fed about Obamacare making healthcare more affordable for the average American. Here is how it went down:

“During the run-up to the passage of Obamacare, President Obama promised my father that if he liked his plan he could keep his plan, and that his insurance would be cheaper. After passage, his plan was no longer allowed and his insurance cost double. Since you supported the plan, were you lying to my dad? Or did you not understand the bill you supported?”

  The man was most likely a plant but it does not matter because this is a legitimate question. You would think that because he is running for President that Joe Biden would be expecting questions about things which happened while he was in the Obama administration but the not so quick on his feet any more Joe Biden had no answer prepared and so he was relegated to letting the truth slip out. He was not lying about the Obamacare bill he just had no idea what was in the bill.

Biden replies:  “There’s two ways people know when something is important. One, when it’s so clear when it’s passed, that everybody understands it.”

Biden continues: “No one did understand Obamacare. Including the way it was rolled out, and the gentleman’s right, it said you could keep your doctor if you wanted to, but you couldn’t keep your doctor if you wanted to necessarily. He’s dead right about that.”

  Not only did Joe Biden admit nobody understood the bill they were voting on but he also admitted the you can keep your doctor lie was just that. I think this is the first time any politician who supported Obamacare has admitted the legislation was built on a lie.

  Of course none of this is news to any of us but Joe Biden was caught off-guard and reaffirmed that  when Nancy Pelosi said they had to pass the bill to see what was in it that was not a gaffe but a rare glimpse at the truth.

    Oh that’s ok. Our politicians couldn’t read a McDonalds menu never mind a 70,000 page bill designed to defraud the American public. Obama and his minions achieved what Hillary Clinton set into motion years earlier but could only dream of pulling off. As for Biden’s role, he was then dumb as a fox and now a self aggrandizing larcenous lap dog. For voters on the left what’s not to love about sleepy Joe?

    If the ‘say no truth’ media did ‘hear it’ they let it drop, then wished it under the carpet. They give a new definition to carpet baggers (one who seeks private gain).
    The Cabal are letting him talk, for whatever reason, they know he’s ‘gone man gone’ 🤯🤣
    Reminder: who wrote much of Obama(No)Care: convicted felon, Robert Creamer. in article click on his name, brings up some info about who he is: Served 5 months in prison (and 11 months in house arrest) for tax evasion and bank fraud, While in prison, he wrote a book that later served as a blueprint for Democrat proposals for universal health care.
    * Creamer’s Involvement in Provoking Violence at Republican Political Events
    * Creamer’s Support for Voter Fraud
    “Moreover, [Scott] Foval spoke reverentially of Creamer: “Bob Creamer is diabolical and I love him for it. I have learned so much from that man over the last twenty years, I can’t even tell you. And he calls me to be his firefighter a lot of the time, because there are people who in our movement will not do what it takes to get %$#^ done. And I’m not that person. I’m the one they send when everything has gone to &%$^.”
    That’s who want to run the Country … ‘to rule over us’ – the Upright needed to stop them.

    Leftism has to be built on lies. The truth all supports the Right.

    Any fifth grader could tell you that you cannot understand something that you haven’t read yet. They had to vote for it to read it.

    If Joe keeps forgetting to Not tell the truth, he and his comrades are doomed.
    May he keep forgetting.
