Everyone remembers the line Barack Obama said about Obamacare that turned out to be 100% not true. "If you like your health care plan, you can keep it."
Politifact named this to be 2013's "Lie of the Year." This was after millions of individuals lost their private insurance. Or had to switch to a much more costly option after changes were put in place by the Affordable Care Act.
On Monday the unthinkable happens when Joe Biden repeated the failed Obamacare line while speaking at a presidential forum in Des Moines, Iowa that was sponsored by the AARP.
"I give people the option," Biden said, while dismissing the Medicare-For-All options provided by his opponents, which would eliminate private health insurance entirely. "If you like your health care plan, your employer-based plan, you can keep it."

Biden continued, "You get full coverage, and you can stay with your plan if you like it. You can stay with your employer-based plan, or you can move on. I think it's the quickest, most reasonable, rational and best way to get to universal coverage."
This video shows 36 times where Obama said you could keep your health care plan.
Well, we all know how that turned out.
In this video Biden talks about how he is going to protect Obamacare and build on it:
The Affordable Care Act was a historic achievement. 20 million Americans gained coverage. Over 100 million with pre-existing conditions finally got protection. We can’t tear it down.
