Joe Biden entered the 2020 race at the top of the polls and he’s managed to put quite some distance between himself and runner-up Bernie Sanders. But as a lot of people have noted, Biden seems to think he’s running back in 1992 or something; he’s actually surprised that women are speaking up and saying please don’t sniff my hair and kiss the back of my neck without asking.
He’s also been branded as — gasp! — a centrist, and even though that makes him the most likely candidate to win the nomination, centrism does not fly with the Democratic Socialists who have taken over the party. And look at the backlash he suffered when he announced his “middle ground” climate plan, which the radicals in the Sunrise Movement declared “a death sentence for our generation.”
Biden continues to dig his hole even deeper with the modern Democratic party; on Tuesday he declared that most Americans are happy with their health care plan. You know, the whole “if you like your insurance, you can keep your insurance” thing.
I asked @JoeBiden today where he stands on Medicare for all.
He doesn't support it because "the vast majority of people are satisfied with their own health care system today."
He endorsed "making a Medicare option available to all" and letting people keep their private plans.

Letting people keep their private plans?
If he supports Bernie’s big plan it’s an admission his “BFD” is an overhaul failure. Pretty simple. https://t.co/6psltOoSnT

Which is what supporters of Bernie’s plan are admitting without the press asking them about it.

Yeah, didn’t Obamacare fix everything? Apparently not. Biden is getting destroyed for saying most people like their health care plan.
Just retire you ridiculous fossil

I have never met a single American satisfied with their coverage tbh. And anyone who thinks they're private coverage is even mediocre they should try getting sick in Europe

How low can Joe go? Remember the old days when he was simply gaffe-prone?

A vote for Biden is a vote for literally no change and allowing a new worse fascist movement to take over the GOP https://t.co/AJyXV8fHJf

He’s living in a fantasy world if he thinks that the vast majority of people are satisfied with their own health care system. The current system is terrible and filled with uninsured and underinsured people. That is unacceptable and the majority of Americans agree.

But … Obamacare made sure every American had affordable health insurance.
He really is running a 1992 campaign. https://t.co/VN6vEkPshp

Boy howdy, there's nothing people love more than the private insurance companies they have to fight with when they need care. Where is this lie coming from (other than Republicans and AHIP)?
You know who is really satisfied with their coverage? People on Medicare and Medicaid. https://t.co/NP9OjVZP9U

“The vast majority” of people are paying thousands of dollars a year in premiums, then thousands of dollars in deductibles before insurance kicks in, at which point they still pay co-pays.
Biden doesn’t support M4A because he supports private insurance profiteering. https://t.co/ix3NASqUP4

Is Joe Biden a parody account?
— Cornelius Cornelius (@kn_dn_40) May 14, 2019
Here's an idea
Have @JoeBiden ask some NOT independently wealthy, could-retire-at-will white assholes with pensions and trust funds what THEY think
You know, people that WORK for a living and get by on a got-damned SALARY, not surviving on 'capital gains' level money

Is Biden literally running as 2008 Obama?

Narrator: Joe Biden went on to handily win the Democratic nomination.
This is essentially Obamacare.
Hilarious reading the replies from people on the left now outraged with this approach. https://t.co/BLtpVT39zH
