Joe Biden had another classic Joe Biden moment on Thursday.
He also said something very revealing about the Democrat Party.
See for yourself, via Daily Wire:
Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden made an odd statement on Thursday while campaigning in Iowa, telling a group of supporters “we choose truth over facts.”
Biden, 76, was presumably referring to the Democrat Party when he told the audience: “We choose science over fiction; we choose truth over facts.”
Biden’s statement led to numerous accounts tweeting out the hashtag “TruthOverFacts” and some even mockingly suggested that it should be his new campaign slogan.
If Biden thinks he’ll become president – or even earn the Democrat nomination – by running on Barack Obama’s record, he’s sorely mistaken.
Dems want someone who is even further to the left of Barry.
Biden must believe that Americans love Obamacare, which is why he said he’ll bring back the individual mandate that President Trump got rid of.
Joe Biden, former vice president and 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful, said Friday he would bring back the individual mandate, the penalty for not having health insurance, which was a pillar of the Affordable Care Act.
“Yes, I’d bring back the individual mandate,” Biden said in an interview on CNN. The individual mandate would be popular now, “compared to what’s being offered,” he added.
Biden played an integral part in crafting the ACA, commonly known as Obamacare. However, President Donald Trump eliminated the individual mandate in 2017 by signing the Republican tax bill, effective the 2019 tax year.
Biden: "If you provide an option for anybody who in fact wants to buy into Medicare for All, they can buy in… But if they like their employer-based insurance, which a lot of unions broke their neck to get… they shouldn't have to give it up" https://t.co/tDM9CsVNv8 pic.twitter.com/sQw4q65gou

It’s quite amazing to watch Democrat politicians defend the failed policies of the Obama administration.
Joe did his best recently to convince a crowd that Barack had “no time” to explain Obamacare to Americans.
Where does he find the stones?
From Free Beacon:
Joe Biden claimed Monday that former President Barack Obama had “no time to explain the Affordable Care Act” because of the volume of problems he encountered in his presidency.
The former vice president’s comments were off the cuff, but they still belied the fact that Obama campaigned for re-election in 2012 on his signature health care law, also known as Obamacare, and held countless town halls and speeches about it before and after its passage in 2010. Those remarks included constant promises that no one would lose their preferred doctor or insurance under the law.
Biden was one of 10 Democratic presidential candidates scheduled to appear at the Poor People’s Campaign’s presidential forum in Washington, where he took a question from MSNBC host Joy Reid about how he would accomplish his legislative goals. Even if Sen. Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) loses his position as majority leader in 2020, Biden as president would still likely face Republicans capable of filibustering ambitious liberal legislation in the Senate.
