Joe Biden, the former vice president and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate claims the United States has an “obligation” to provide illegal immigrants with free health care as reported by The Daily Wire.
The current frontrunner to win the Democratic primary in 2020 spoke before an audience in Los Angeles when he thought it was a good idea to get on the topic of healthcare and immigration, giving his liberal audience what they wanted to hear.
“I think that anyone who is in a situation where they’re in need of health care, regardless of whether they are documented or undocumented, we have an obligation to see that they are cared for,” Biden said. “That’s why I think we need more clinics around the country.”
Apparently spineless Joe, who will say anything to grab as many votes as possible, thinks that the American taxpayer should reward criminals who enter the country illegally by providing them with free healthcare.
Biden then proceeded to underplay the idea that illegal immigration is a problem driven primarily by illegal border crossings, suggesting instead that a large number of illegal immigrants in the country are simply just visa overstays. Never mind the fact that immigration arrests along the border are at a 12-year high.
“U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) detained 109,144 migrants along the boundary with Mexico last month, a 6 percent increase from March, as monthly arrests reached their highest point since 2007,” The Washington Post reported. “Unauthorized border crossings have more than doubled in the past year, and they are on pace to exceed 1 million on an annual basis, as Guatemalan and Honduran families continue streaming north in record numbers with the expectation they will be quickly processed and released from custody.”
“A significant portion of undocumented folks in this country are there because they’ve overstayed their visas,” Biden said. “It’s not people breaking down the gates coming across the border. And so, the biggest things we’ve gotta do in this is tone down the rhetoric. We know why it’s happening. It’s to create fear and concern. Why is your job in danger? Because of that – and then he describes them in vey graphic, unflattering terms – that other, that immigrant. It’s ridiculous Biden continued, presumably referring to President Donald Trump.”
Yes Joe, great idea, lets make it easier for people who are NOT paying taxes, to have access to tax funded services. That sounds like a sure-fire way to ensure the long-lasting success of the country. What we have here seems to be another case of liberal delusion, promising things that are not only physically impossible to deliver, but fiscally irrational as well. As we know however, their voters are not concerned with logic and reason.
While the other Democratic presidential candidates are all competing to see whose single-payer health care proposal can scam the American people out of the most money, Biden has not gone into much detail regarding his plans on the issue if by some miracle he was elected. This excerpt is from a Vox article titled: “No one knows what Joe Biden thinks of healthcare”
“The former vice president, who announced his presidential candidacy Thursday morning, has stayed pretty mum on the topic. He has not endorsed Medicare-for-all, nor has he disavowed the idea. His spokesperson did not respond to a request for comment on Monday on Biden’s views on health care.
Could this mean that Biden follows those same far-left ideologies that most of his Democratic opponents do? Or does it simply mean that Joe is just another sheep attempting to please the masses? My theory suggests both are true.
