“I have a plan how to do that that’s rational, that’ll cost a hell of a lot less and will work”
During a recent interview on CNN, Joe Biden revealed that he wants to reinstate the individual mandate in Obamacare, the least popular aspect of the law that eviscerated the Democratic party during Obama’s presidency.
Biden’s entire candidacy, so far, seems to be an effort to save what’s left of Obama’s legacy.
Molly Prince reports at the Daily Caller:
Biden Vows To Reinstate Obamacare’s Individual Mandate
Democratic presidential front-runner Joe Biden revealed Friday he would reinstate the individual mandate and penalize Americans who do not obtain health care coverage if he were to win the presidency.
“I think there should be health care for everyone. I have a plan how to do that that’s rational, that’ll cost a hell of a lot less and will work,” Biden told CNN’s Chris Cuomo during an interview.
Biden put forth that as a way to guarantee that all Americans receive health care coverage, the federal government would fine any individual who did not obtain sufficient health insurance…
“Yes, yes, I’d bring back the individual mandate,” Biden replied when Cuomo inquired further about the unpopular penalty.
“We’re in a situation where if you provide an option for anybody who in fact wants to buy into Medicare for All, they can buy in,” Biden said. “But if they like their employer-based insurance … they shouldn’t have to give it up.”

This supercut from the interview is a riot. Watch to the end to hear Biden claim the Russian meddling of 2016 would never have happened on his and Obama’s watch, which it, you know, did.
