    Americans wondering what a Biden administration would do to their
    health care cannot be reassured by the former vice president's comments
    on the subject at Thursday night's presidential debate in Nashville.
    Joe Biden resurrected a claim about the last great government
    intervention into medical markets that has gone down as one of the most consequential falsehoods by a government official in years.

    In response to President Donald Trump's argument that Mr. Biden's
    creation of a new government health plan would destroy private
    insurance plans, Mr. Biden said:

    Not one single person with private insurance would lose their
    insurance under my plan, nor did they under Obamacare. They
    did not lose their insurance unless they chose they wanted to
    go to something else.

    It is nothing short of stunning that Mr. Biden is still trying to get
    away with this claim about the so-called Affordable Care Act, which he championed alongside then-President Barack Obama. Among the millions
    who saw their policies cancelled was Edie Littlefield Sundby, who wrote
    in the Journal in November of 2013:

    Everyone now is clamoring about Affordable Care Act winners
    and losers. I am one of the losers.

    My grievance is not political; all my energies are directed to
    enjoying life and staying alive, and I have no time for
    politics. For almost seven years I have fought and survived
    stage-4 gallbladder cancer, with a five-year survival rate of
    less than 2% after diagnosis. I am a determined fighter and
    extremely lucky. But this luck may have just run out: My
    affordable, lifesaving medical insurance policy has been
    canceled effective Dec. 31.


    Democrats and the liberal media hate President Trump more than they
    love this country.
