Biden Ignites Huge Backlash With Claim “Not One Single Person” Lost Health Insurance Under Obamacare
When Obama and Biden were trying to sell the American people on Obamacare, they just said anything that sounded good to push the whole idea and the mainstream media basically refused to do any significant “fact-checking” on their claims until after their precious Affordable Care Act had passed. One of Obama’s most famous untrue promises about Obamacare was that “If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan.” He and his administration said that over and over again until even the left-wingers at Politifact felt compelled to call it the “Lie of the Year” for 2013. Well, believe it or not, last night at the debate, Joe Biden tried to resell the American people that same disproven lie.
As you saw if you watched the video, Biden said,
“Not one single person with private insurance would lose their insurance under my plan, nor did they under Obamacare. They did not lose their insurance unless they chose they wanted to go to something else.”
As someone who wrote a column back in 2013 called, I Lost My Health Insurance Because of Obamacare, I can tell you this isn’t true from personal experience. Of course, there were literally millions of other Americans that also had this happen to them and many of them were speaking up about it on Twitter. One of them was Dan Bongino himself.

We could go on and on like this for thousands of tweets, but it just goes to show you nothing has changed since the Obamacare days. Joe Biden will just say anything that sounds good and the lapdogs in the media will tactfully overlook it, come up with a way to claim it’s true or in rare cases, grudgingly admit it isn’t true somewhere buried deep in a paper where they hope fewer people will notice it.
