Biden: Pushing to the Left

2019 May 10
by bc3b

One of Joe Biden’s biggest problems is that, while most of us view him as a flaming liberal. he isn’t far enough to the left for many of today’s Democrats. But, just as Beto became a fake Hispanic and Fauxahontas became a fake Native American, Slow Joe is doing what it takes to please the Dem’s leftist base.

His latest move is calling for complete medical care for illegal immigrants:

Biden says Americans have an ‘obligation’ to pay for healthcare of ‘undocumented’ immigrants.

Former Vice President Joe Biden appears to believe that Americans are obligated to pay for illegal aliens to receive the same healthcare benefits typically reserved for only actual citizens.

That’s not necessarily correct. While there were reportedly 667,000 overstays in 2018, according to data from the Department of Homeland Security, a whopping 75,000+ illegal aliens were apprehended illegally crossing into the states in February alone. Assuming the rate remains constant (it appears to be increasing, in fact), the annual total may wind up topping a million.e certainly isn’t the first Democrat to tout such a viewpoint

While at a campaign stop-over in Los Angeles on Wednesday, the former vice president turned 2020 contender was specifically asked whether he believes illegal aliens “should be entitled to federal [healthcare-related] benefits” such as Medicare and Medicaid.

While Biden didn’t directly answer the question, the reply he offered did seem to indicate that he does indeed believe illegal aliens should be entitled to Medicare and Medicaid benefits.

“I think that anyone who is in a situation where they’re in need of healthcare, regardless of whether they are documented or undocumented, we have an obligation to see that they are cared for,” he said. “That’s why I think we need more clinics around the country.”

Who should pay for that care? California Gov. Gavin Newsom has suggested that Americans should pay. After his inauguration in January, he specifically called for forcing every Californian to obtain health insurance, charging each Californian exorbitant premiums for that insurance and then using the money accrued to provide young illegal aliens with free health care. Does Biden feel similarly?

He continued by downplaying America’s growing border crisis and dismissing the disastrous consequences of unrestrained long-term illegal immigration.

“A significant portion of undocumented folks in this country are there because they’ve overstayed their visas,” he claimed. “It’s not people breaking down the gates coming across the border.”

“And so, the biggest thing we’ve gotta do in this is tone down the rhetoric,” he added. “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 very graphic, unflattering terms — that other, that immigrant. It’s ridiculous.”

He was presumably mocking the factually accurate rhetoric of President Donald Trump and conservatives in general, all of who’ve rightly noted that illegal immigration “depress[es] the wages and employment opportunities” of all Americans, particularly minorities.

Sadly, Biden’s stance on the border crisis is ubiquitous among the left. Liberal Democrats, for the most part, refuse to acknowledge that there’s a border crisis.

    As I wrote last week, can anyone think of a single thing any of the identity-obsessed Democrats have suggested that will benefit working class Americans?

    You can’t have medicare for all and open borders. Instead of 15yrs for medicare to collapse it would do so in 2 or 3.

    Why do cities like LA, San Francisco, Portland and Seattle have tent cities of homeless while Detroit, Flint, Cleveland and St. Louis don’t. While weather plays a factor, the West Coast cities have enacted policies (welfare, free needle exchanges, non-enforcement of vagrancy laws, etc.).

    The same is true of countries – offer goodies and you’ll attract the poor and uneducated like a magnet.

    Health care for illegals, reparations, free college, the “‘green war.” etc. Where is the money coming from?

    Slow Joe has been seeking the presidency for over 30 years. In previous bids, he never got above the low single digits. Why? because he’s a certifiable idiot. Voters are going to realize this as the campaign presses on. And, if he’s the candidate, Trump will be all over him every time he makes one of his trademark gaffes.

    And, the deals he engineered with foreign countries for his POS son aren’t going to help.

    I think bc3b is correct and over THIS summer, not next summer Biden will fade.
    He’s an idiot. Plus the base is so stirred up that he can’t meet their expectations.
    So who will it be?

    The “clown car” group all fell to low levels in polls as soon as Joe came in. They are just not ready. So who? Michelle? Hillary? Oprah? Bernie?

    Kamala might have the check-boxes covered but is she stupid enough to run? I think PDJT would squash her and she knows it. She’s gearing up for a future run, and maybe wants a VP nom this time. She’s not in it for a suicidal run at Trump in 2020. At least, I think so.

    Yeah, Bernie is an Ind or a Socialist.
    Not even a Democrat!

    Stephanopoulos launching the “war on women” in 2012 is illustrative of how the media works in concert with the Dems. You can be sure they will back-stab any candidate they feel sure Trump would destroy. Slow Joe may be the first to get the shiv.

    Oh better move would be to run for his office. Revenge voting would probably be thru the roof.

    Eph –

    For the next 18 months the media really has its work cut out trying to make the Dems look more moderate.

    Eph #23 may be on the horizon:

    Stacey really looks like she belongs in a clown car. Hockey players dream about the goal being as wide as the space between Stacey’s teeth.

    24,

    We tried, we failed, but that is what HRC election run was all about. Just not enough COUP in her to pull it off.
