Former Vice President, 2020 presidential candidate, and invader of personal space, Joe Biden has a few words to say about your healthcare plan: If you like it, you can keep it!
Hmm... That sounds vaguely familiar, does it not? Extraordinarily familiar in fact. Come to think of it, that line sounds EXACTLY like the most famous and disgusting lie of the Obama presidency! Remember that? Here, allow us to refresh your memory with a montage supplied by CNN:
Whoopsy! On Monday, however, creepy, sleepy Joe Biden issued the same pledge while speaking at a presidential forum sponsored by AARP in Des Moines, Iowa.
"I give people the option," Biden said, after dismissing his opponents' "Medicare-for-all" proposals, which would eliminate private health insurance entirely. "If you like your health care plan, your employer-based plan, you can keep it."
Creepy Joe added: "You get full coverage, and you can stay with your plan if you like it. You can stay with your employer-based plan, or you can move on. I think it's the quickest, most reasonable, rational and best way to get to universal coverage."
Biden also claimed he was down for a push-up challenge against President Donald Trump. Hammer and Nigel have the full audio and commentary in the clip below.
