Former Vice President Joe Biden struggled to articulate his plans on health care and was cut off repeatedly on Wednesday during the second night of the Democrat debates on CNN.

“It’s no longer chemicals … it’s about all these breakthroughs we’re having with the, you know, you know, excuse me, immune system,” Joe Biden said in one apparent fumble while discussing biologics on the subject of health care and got cut off without finishing his point.
