Julián Castro on jabbing Joe Biden’s memory: I wouldn’t do it differently
He was in the middle of what is certainly the most talked-about moment in last night’s democratic debate: former housing secretary Hulu on Castro questioning the memory of former Vice President Joe Biden and joining me now is former secretary to Leon Kass remonstrate. Thank you. So much for being with us good morning, good morning, good to be with you, we heard from an Iowa voter earlier this morning who is watching who said he wished you had laid off the personal attacks. You have had a night reflect on this. How would you do it differently? Wouldn’T do it differently? That was not a personal attack. This is about a disagreement over what the vice president sad regarding healthcare policy. The vice president had said that he, he didn’t say the words by in when he talked about his health care plan. He had, in fact said those words, but then he denied same them, and I pointed out that he had just said that he was denying it. This is important because it’s not about personalities, it’s about the fact that his plan would require you to buy in at certain times, which means add Mike. My Approach would cover everybody. Where is his approach? Would leave 10 million people on covered pointed out this big difference in our approach and ask you about the differences in the plan that exactly what you were speaking about it exactly what you’re buying said about his plan is just a moment, but back to what you Said because you said it wasn’t personal, not once not twice but three times you asked him, you forgetting what you said 2 minutes ago. Are you forgetting already you said, and then you said you are forgetting that. Why do you keep saying that in the auditorium? If you look at what happened, the video, secondly, look on stage, so I was asking him: are you forgetting what you said two minutes ago, because you just said it and it back when you look at the transcript of the video? That’S what he said this morning that you weren’t questioning Joe Biden’s memory. He was saying that he at two minutes ago are you questioning. Are you questioning? Do you have questions about your buns? You said three times and you are you are. You are a very skillful politician who chooses your words very very carefully, because he did you forget that you said by – and this is important, because it means the difference between covering 10 million people in this country and not covering 10. choosing about his healthcare plan. That get to this issue were talking about. Let’S play one of them. The first is s23 play that who can afford it gets automatically enrolled in a Medicare type option. We have all right. He said that which automatically rolls there are people under the Joe Biden plan who will be automatically in in medicare-for-all when they sign up for things like Snap in other federal assistance, especially if they’re in States not covered by Medicaid expansion. So there will be people, as you just said, some will be automatically enrolled. Then there are others have to buy. It listened to what he said there. If you want Medicare, if you lose the job from your insurance coming from your employer, you automatically can buy into this, so he does say that some people will be able to buy and with subsidy PolitiFact says of your statement about Biden. The statement has an element of Truth. They say of you but ignores critical facts that will give a different impression, so we rated as mostly false he responds yeah. Actually, the last time they did a fact-checked about whether his plan would leave 10 million people uncovered. They said that they would leave millions of people uncovered on. So what his plan does wire somebody. It requires certain people to buy into health insurance. What I pointed out last night was in my Approach would not require an opt-in or buying like that. It’S actually an opt-out, that’s a big difference plan. So that’s what I pointed out last night and yeah. That’S that’s! Not! A difference in personality continue to point out the differences. If we’re not there to point out the differences to be American people about our policy need to know that under his approach, 10 million Americans would be uncovered in under my Approach. Everyone would be covered and that’s a big difference. The other plans are right there. Last night, but there are differences, have that discussion. It is what some people looking at that this morning will say, and I just ask you again to be clear because you said it three times: are you forgetting, and I think you do choose your words carefully? Do you I feel, as if questioning the memory of the former vice president is fair game? Do you think that’s important in the selection right now? I think the weather that was the vice president are dates on stage. If somebody said that to me. Obviously you you read what he said or implied what he said. If somebody said to me in that moment, that’s people would have to buy into their plan 2 minutes later they denied it. I don’t care who you are on that debate stage, I’m going to ask you why you’re forgetting that you said 2 minutes ago that people would have to buy in and now you’re explicitly denying that the vice president is, I mean, he’s been around for a long Time: okay, when we’re up there, we’re up there to debate and I’m going to make the point, and so it didn’t matter that it was Joe Biden. David been another candidate that tried to deny what they just said 2 minutes ago. I would have asked him the same thing and you know I’m going to continue to point out the differences in our health-care policy in our economic policy on immigration policy Bass Down.
