That Old Chestnut? Biden Says If You Like Your Healthcare Plan, You Can Keep It!

Remember when former President Barack Obama said if you liked your healthcare plan, you’d be able to keep it under Obamacare? Remember when that turned out to be the 2013 “Lie of the Year?” Well, former Obama VP and 2020 presidential contender Joe Biden decided to dust it off and take it for a spin Monday.

What: “I give people the option. If you like your health care plan, your employer-based plan, you can keep it,” Biden told a crowd at an Iowa AARP event. “If in fact you have private insurance, you can keep it.”

Biden was contrasting his position with 2020 rivals Sens. Kamala Harris (D-MA), Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), all of whom want “Medicare for All,” which is complete socialized healthcare.

Why It Matters: It was a lie when Obama said it, and it’s a lie when Biden says it too. We knew Obamacare would usher in low quality, state-sponsored healthcare when it was rammed though the Congress, and it did just that. Democrats will not stop until America has completely ineffective, government run healthcare.
