Joe Biden is currently dominating the Democratic primary.
He’s entered the race and promptly doubled up Bernie Sanders, who was supposed to be performing much better than he has. This led Sanders to team up with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to let us know that post offices should now give up subprime loans, because what could possibly go wrong?
While Biden has an easy path to victory against his fellow Democrats if he just monopolizes the “moderate” lane, he apparently thinks he needs to out-crazy his opponents, which admittedly is tough to do.

This is the kind of thing you’d expect to hear from a California Democrat, not a guy hoping to take back the mid-west by winning blue-collar voters.
Regardless of how humane someone may think this statement is, it’s objectively insane. We can not possibly afford to provide healthcare to illegal immigrants, who are now crossing in massive numbers each month. It’s also something that would produce a magnet effect, drawing even more to break our laws. That means more human smuggling, more sexual assaults, and more deaths of children making the journey. Biden’s position is actually a pretty terrible one to take.
Worse, it’s asking law-abiding Americans who are already struggling to pay for their own healthcare to pay even more for those who can’t even respect our laws enough to enter legally.
When @JoeBiden says we're obligated to give HC to all, he means those of us that have high premiums, deductibles, and coins amounts that escalated under the ACA. He's asking the American people that struggle to afford care and cov'g to give it to those that shun the rule of law https://t.co/f9Pg6CYFgo

Ironically, it’s Barack Obama and Joe Biden who’ve put us in the situation we are currently in with the passage of Obamacare, which Biden once lauded as a “Big f-ing deal” in an attempt to push it.
Now cash-strapped Americans need to have their premiums skyrocket even more so we can give healthcare to illegal immigrants? I’m sure this is going to play really well in OH, MI, WI, and PA.
This exposes the overall problem for Biden. He’s similar to Trump in that if he just doesn’t talk as much, more people like him. But the more Biden flails about with silly, unhinged statements like this, the worse off he’s going to be. While Biden may think dancing for nickles from the liberal base will help him now, he’s making a strategic mistake in regards to the general election (if he makes it there).
But hey, keep making those mistakes as far as I’m concerned.
