Now Biden is promising ‘low-quality’ health insurance

Now Biden is promising ‘low-quality’ health insurance

At least you can’t accuse him of not “telling it like it is.” On Friday, presidential candidate Joe Biden admitted before a crowd of prospective voters in Hanover, N.H. that the healthcare plan he would offer as president was “not quality”:

If you’re not satisfied, you have another option, high-quality options. The public option will be available in my plan. We’ll make sure it’s not quality. We’ll make sure it’s only affordable, quality that’s affordable.

Moments later, he walked back his own promise of affordability, assuring rank and file voters that their health insurance premiums would increase:

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

And for folks in the working class … they will, in fact, we’ll increase their premiums, excuse me, the will increase the generosity of the premium tax credit they now get.

None of what he said is obviously what he meant, though it is becoming increasingly hard to know what the former vice president means as he stumbles over his words and thoughts. On Thursday, for example, he said this while campaigning in Virginia:

As for his gaffe on health care, the mistake comes inconveniently only a few days after his wife acknowledged publicly, “Your candidate might be better on, I don’t know, health care, than Joe.” Judging by his description, who could be worse?
