Former Vice President Joe Biden walked on stage for the third Democrat Presidential debate as one of the top-tier candidates.
But one gaffe could change everything.
And Joe Biden got caught hiding this massive campaign-ending health issue.
During a debate over health care plans, Julian Castro attacked Joe Biden’s plan to impose a so-called “public option” as insufficiently socialist.
Castro attacked Biden for making Americans buy into his plan instead of automatically enrolling.
Biden tried to defend his government healthcare takeover by claiming what Castro was saying wasn’t true.
But that’s when Castro went in for the kill.
Castro asked Biden if he already forgot what he said two minutes ago – a clear shot at Biden’s declining mental faculties.
The Daily Mail reports:
‘That’s a big difference, because Barack Obama’s vision was not to leave 10 million people uncovered. He wanted every single person in this country covered. My plan would do that. Your plan would not,’ he said.
Biden defended his plan: ‘They do not have to buy in. They do not have to buy in.’
And then Castro attacked him hard, implying he had forgotten what his plan involved in a not-so-subtle hint at the concerns among some Democrats about Biden’s age.
‘You just said that two minutes ago. You just two minutes ago they would have to buy in,’ he said.
‘Are you forgetting what you said two minutes ago? Are you forgetting already what you said just two minutes ago? I can’t believe that you said two minutes ago that they had to buy in and now you’re saying they don’t have to buy in. You’re forgetting that,’ Castro added.
Biden’s old age, constant gaffes, and inability to remember basic facts or get through a speech without stumbling over his words concerns many Democrats.
This debate – where Biden was called out for age by a fellow Democrat – shows the attacks on Biden’s growing senility are starting to take hold.
