Joe Biden On ObamaCare: “you couldn’t keep your doctor if you wanted to necessarily”
“no one did understand Obamacare”
Former Vice President Joe Biden appeared at a town hall in Iowa over the weekend and was asked about ObamaCare.
Giving a typically rambling non-answer, Biden did admit a couple of salient details: nope, you couldn’t keep your doctor “necessarily” as Obama repeatedly promised, and “no one did understand ObamaCare.”

The Daily Wire has a transcript:
During a question and answer session, a young man asked Biden about his support for Obamacare:
I just need this question. So we’re going to take a trip back 2008 real quick. 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. 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 waffles on for a while before getting sort of closer to the point of the young man’s question.
Well, because people, there’s two ways people know when something is important. 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’s right, he said, “You could keep your doctor if you wanted to,” and you couldn’t keep your doctor if you wanted to necessarily. He’s dead right about that. But the fact is that when something’s taken away, when you – people didn’t know.

Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
Wasn’t that then entire point of why the insurance companies wrote it that way? Easier to Steal money when everyone but the Cons are confused.
BTW, it’s a thing of beauty they way Steve Hilton takes down the “Biden Crime Family” for their Ukraine “deals.”
Obama promised them unending cash and that was a lie much like your comment.
The regime promised the insurance companies and money because it would be forced. Think of the cash your company could make if everyone in the country was forced to do business with you. That was a lie to get the companies on board. Obama’s plan was to make this step one in single-payer. Even he knew you could do it in one step. So they authored this joke to fail to force the low IQ to clamor for the government to fix the problem they caused. Moving right to single-payer and they would be no insurance companies to interfere
It befuddles! The original opposition to ObamaCare was that no one understood it beyond the very real understanding. In the end one can only conclude that we were suckered.
Nancy should be tarred and feathered. Obama is a traitor and the laws should apply
Joe is a shovel ready project.
Pure gibberish. Gibbering Joe. The best the Democrats have to offer.
“You couldn’t keep your doctor.”
So he’s basically admitting that his former boss, and himself, lied.
“no one did understand Obamacare”
And they voted FOR it anyways, without even bothering to read it.
Anyone and everyone who was involved in passing Obamacare should be banned from politics for life.
Funny, despite Creepy Quid Pro making the claim that no one understood Obamacare, the Republicans were all against it, and the only fault with what they said would happen from this fiasco of a law was they underestimated how bad it would be.
We knew it for what it was meant to be, the pathway to National Healthcare coverage, a stepping stone to socialized medicine.
“We have to pass the bill to see what’s in it.”
So Joe, were you lying or just stupid?
And, JPL, and.
I really, really, really hope Biden (D-commie) is the nominee. I do believe I’ll buy some land and plant popping corn.
Who would believe that a senile old idiot that cannot string together a simple thought and complete it would be the frontrunner for the D nomination…
Is Slow going on 78 or 98?
I don’t think joe could get through a debate with PDJT. PDJT will probably trigger poor joe into a red faced, stuttering, denture rattling wreck. joe is setting himself up to be the star in a lot of PDJT campaign ads. Run the infamous obamacare “This is a big effing deal” clip followed by this train wreck of an admission.
How the democrats can’t see that biden shouldn’t be in this race is beyond me.
“How the democrats can’t see…”
Oh, they see this train wreck, they just don’t have anyone better than an old senile idiot.
“Biden to Man whose family was harmed by ObamaCare: “No One did Understand Obamacare”
No, anyone with a functional brain stem knew Chairman O was lying! The dinosaur media, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Democrat party, covered for him. Slow Joe Biden didn’t know, he is that stupid, always has been. He has been wrong about nearly every major policy decision for 40 years.
You could keep your doctor if you wanted to,” and you couldn’t keep your doctor if you wanted to necessarily.
No Joe, there wasn’t any “necessarily” to Obamacare. So quit lying about it. You couldn’t keep your doctor (unless you were a member of Congress) and you couldn’t keep your healthcare plan (unless you were a member of Congress) and you didn’t save any money on premiums (unless you were a member of Congress). The average Joe Citizen lost their doctor, lost their healthcare plan and paid significantly more for the privilege of being covered under the Obamacare provisions.
Great Maker, that man is disgusting (as well as totally incoherent).
