Biden’s Deceptions (Health Care Edition)

Others around here have pointed to a large number of exaggerations and lies that Joe Biden told last night, but perhaps the most concerted and premeditated set of deceptions was in his criticisms of the McCain health care plan. These were very much in line with the attacks the Obama campaign has tried to launch against the plan this week, with growing intensity, so we can certainly expect them to be repeated in the next two debates. They are variously untrue and/or incoherent, and McCain should be ready to answer them. 

I have a piece up on the homepage now laying out Biden’s attacks, and contrasting them with the facts.
