Joe Biden, who was vice president when President Obama reportedly fixed everything wrong with health insurance in America by signing Obamacare into law, just this week dusted off his old boss’s line at an AARP event, telling attendees, “If you like your health care plan, your employer-based plan, you can keep it. If you like your private insurance, you can keep it.”

That same line coming from Obama’s mouth was awarded “Lie of the Year” by PolitiFact, but what’s important is it pits Biden, the alleged moderate, against his socialist competitors who are demanding nothing less than Medicare for All and the elimination of private health insurance.

Of course, America was wondering what Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez thought of all this, and she replied that no one would be heartbroken to lose their private health insurance. Private health insurance is a for-profit business, which makes it a bad thing … doesn’t it?

No, she wouldn’t. She wants to eliminate the entire industry — why would she care what the American people think?

That’s definitely on-brand for AOC.
