Joe Biden Claims U.S. ‘Obligation’ to Give Illegal Aliens Free Health Care

Breitbart – by Warner Todd Huston

Former vice president and current Democrat candidate for president, Joe Biden, feels the United States has an “obligation” to give free health care to illegal aliens.

The leading Democrat candidate made his pronouncement at a campaign stop in Los Angeles, California, on Wednesday. 

Replying to a reporter who asked if illegals who are “law abiding” deserve federal benefits, Biden eagerly agreed.

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

The former vice president added that we need to “tone down the rhetoric” against illegals and that worries over illegal immigration are meant to “create fear and concern” about “that other, the immigrant.”

Biden has thus far been rather closed-mouth about health care. While he certainly supports Obamacare and an expansion of his former boss’s signature achievement, Biden has not spoken to what sort of plan he prefers as he gears up his campaign for the Democrat nomination for 2020.

Unlike other Democrat candidates, Biden has not endorsed Medicare-for-all but neither has he denounced the idea.

As to illegal aliens, Biden has previously exclaimed that they are “already Americans.”

In a 2014 speech to the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce in Washington, D.C. the then-vice president declared that the millions of illegals in the U.S. are already American citizens.

You know, the 11 million people living in the shadows, I believe they’re already American citizens. Teddy Roosevelt said it better, he said Americanism is not a question of birthplace or creed or a line of dissent. It’s a question of principles, idealism, and character. [Emphasis added]

These people are just waiting, waiting for a chance to be able to contribute fully. And by that standard, 11 million undocumented aliens are already American

  1. This is the kind of thing that really chaps my ass. We as sovereign American Nationals dont have to respect a damn thing that jeopardizes our sovereignty. This traitor talks down to us, as if we work for him and his Jew masters. This to me is the epitome of the arrogance going on here. FK him and his Jewish bullshit. For me to have to agree to this insanity would me turning into a traitor to my country, as guaranteed and fought and died for as per our Bill of Rights.

    This is a slap in the face to me to have to even read the header to this bullshit ontop of this article. At this point, they have declared we are definitely subjugated subjects and this asshat is to be our master. How he sleeps at night is beyond me, he had to know this is war now, no more playing around.

    Cant believe what is going on here..
