Haley Hits Back After Biden Reportedly Criticizes Her Brains

Why gaffe-prone Joe Biden felt he of all people is in a position to attack someone for not having “brains” is anyone’s guess, but that’s reportedly what he did to Nikki Haley during a South Carolina campaign event on Wednesday.

According to The Post and Courier reporter Jamie Lovegrove, Biden criticized the Palmetto State’s former governor for “declining to expand Medicaid here.”

“In Georgetown, he appears to start saying she ‘didn’t have the brains’ before stopping himself and changing it to “foresight” because he wants to ‘be polite,’” Lovegrove said. 

Clearly, Haley wasn’t going to just let that jab go.

“Hold up Joe,” she said on Twitter. “I will put my brain up against yours anytime. Bring it.”

As The Daily Wire pointed out, Americans For Tax Reform praised Haley's decision in September 2012 and hoped others would follow her lead:

“Americans for Tax Reform urges South Carolina legislators to follow the lead of Governor Haley, who has taken a fiscally prudent position on the issue. Gov. Haley not only opposes Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion, but has also come out in support of block granting Medicaid to the states, which allows states to take control of this runaway entitlement and reform how their tax dollars are spent.”

Haley noted at the time that Medicaid expansion would be a "fiscal disaster" for the state. 

"If history has proven anything, it's that there is no such thing as a temporary entitlement program," she said.
