Former Vice President Joe Biden stunned supporters on the campaign trail this week; publicly admitting that “nobody understood Obamacare” and many people across the country “couldn’t keep their doctors.”
“No one did understand Obamacare, including the way it was rolled out,” said Biden in Iowa. “It said you could keep your doctor if you wanted to, and you couldn’t keep your doctor if you wanted to necessarily.”
My god! Biden gives a stunning answer after a man explains that his father lost his insurance under Obamacare and his new plan was twice as expensive.
Biden's response? He wasn't lying because "no one understood Obamacare."

Senator Bernie Sanders ripped former Vice President Joe Biden during an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper this week; saying his record on trade agreements and American manufacturing jobs “won’t play well in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania.”
“Joe Biden voted for the disastrous trade agreements like NAFTA, permanent trade relations with China which cost us millions of jobs. You think that’s going to play well in Michigan, or Wisconsin, or Pennsylvania?” asked Sen. Sanders.

“Joe Biden has been on the floor of the Senate talking about the need to cut Social Security, or Medicare, or Medicaid. If we’re going to beat Trump, we need turnout… I just don’t think that kind of record is going to bring forth the energy we need to defeat Trump,” he added.
