Joe Biden was the Vice President when Democrats passed Obamacare, the massive overhaul of healthcare in the United States. Why would Joe Biden think we need healthcare reform.
And more importantly, why is he allowed to brush off questions about it by claiming he doesn’t have time to explain it?
The Daily Wire reported:
Joe Biden, Running For President, Says He ‘Doesn’t Have Time’ To Explain His Healthcare Plan
Joe Biden wants you to vote for him so you can find out what’s in his healthcare plan.
That sounds familiar.
During his first weeks as an official presidential candidate, Biden has talked extensively about healthcare being a human “right” (health insurance, however, is not a right) and said he would give everyone the chance to buy into Medicare, stopping just short of supporting rival candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) “Medicare-for-all” plan. The plan would apparently allow Americans to stop relying on private health insurance, but Biden has so far not provided details on how exactly he would get us there.
While speaking in Iowa City last week, Biden mentioned his Medicare buy-in program, but would not provide details or discuss a specific bill that encompasses some or part of his vision.
“I don’t have time; I don’t want to keep you standing any longer,” the former vice president told his audience, the Washington Examiner reported.
Biden, of course, was specifically saying he didn’t have time at that moment to lay out the plan, but he has thus far not revealed the details of his plan anywhere else.
Even writers at liberal publications are going after Joe for this.
Biden Says He Doesn’t “Have the Time” to Give His Health-Care Plan
At Joe Biden’s first campaign event in Iowa late last week, the Democratic presidential front-runner assured the crowd that he had a health-care plan. But if they wanted to hear about it, they were out of luck: He just didn’t “have the time to completely lay out all the details,” according to Politico.
That’s a really weird issue to not make time for, particularly since the Democrats just won back the House last year on messaging about health care. According to CNN, 41 percent of voters in 2018 said it was the single most important issue facing the country.
But Biden also didn’t have time to get into his plan to tackle college debt, telling the crowd, “I don’t have time; I don’t want to keep you standing any longer.” That’s surprisingly dismissive for an issue that affects 44 million people who collectively owe $1.5 trillion in debt.
For now, Biden seems more invested in relying on his own charm to carry him. Unfortunately for him, though, he’s constantly undermining that charm himself.
You would think Biden would be more prepared for questions on this topic.
