“They debated Medicare plans: Whether people should opt-in to Medicare, buy-in to Medicare, or be automatically enrolled. In this specific instance, the two were debating people who lost their jobs, and how their insurance would be handled.

Biden said something that could be up for interpretation, saying you could “automatically buy in” to Medicare if you lost your job.

But Castro went after him repeatedly for “forgetting,” saying his plan automatically enrolled people, without a buy-in.

It was apparently a pointed attack, given that Biden has had a string of misremembered stories and gaffes on the campaign trail.

Some people thought it was good and smart for Castro to say. Some thought it was a cheap shot, like Rahm Emanuel.

Emanuel thought Castro was “mean” and “vindictive.”

After the debate ended, ABC’s Tom Llamas said the comment “upset” Emmanuel, before asking him what he thought.

Emanuel called it disqualifying.”
