Joe Biden is like all the other politicians…he’s a flip-flopper. He raised his hand at the Democratic debates to say he’d give healthcare to illegals, but now he’s trying to backpedal and rephrase what he said. In true Biden style, he dug a deeper hole for himself!
In an interview that aired today with CNN’s Chris Cuomo, Biden backpedaled, but if you read between the lines, he hasn’t changed his position at all.
Biden said that illegals “need to have a means by which they can be covered when they’re sick,” but he doesn’t want to call it what it is…free healthcare for illegals! Then he said something unbelievable! He wants to start “building more clinics around the country” so that illegals can have healthcare “when they’re sick when they’re ill.”
Transcript from the exchange:
CUOMO: “On health care, do you believe that undocumented people should have health care in this country?”
Instead of a yes or no answer, you get this:
BIDEN: “I think undocumented people need to have a means by which they can be covered when they’re sick. And so the idea that’s what I think you should be doing by building more clinics around the country, not just for undocumented but for other people when they’re ill when they’re sick. People need — that’s just common decency.
We’re pretty sure that’s a strong yes answer but Biden wants to use political jargon and shaming to get voters to agree with him. Why should legal American taxpayers pay for illegal alien healthcare?
Question: "Do you believe that undocumented people should have health care in this country.
