This time mimicking Medicare for All proponents, Biden said Monday that what he’s been calling elitist was “the attitude that we know better than ordinary people what’s in their interests. ‘I know more than you, let me tell you what to do.'”
“The attitude is elitist that people can’t make up their own mind,” Biden said.
“You like your health insurance,” he said, then dropped to a lower voice: “‘But you shouldn’t like your health insurance, you should have to give that up. I’m going to demand you not have that. We’re going to give you something better.'”
“It’s not about her, it’s about the attitude out there — the attitude that we know best, you do it my way.”
He added: “I resent that. And I wasn’t talking about her, I was talking about the attitude that if you don’t agree with me, get in the other party.”
