Joe Biden rolls out expanded Affordable Care Act health plan

Former vice president Joe Biden speaks at a campaign stop Saturday in New Hampshire

Democrats have nearly universally called for allowing Medicare to negotiate for drug prices directly, and nearly succeeded in including such a provision in the Affordable Care Act, which Biden helped push through Congress as vice president.

Monday night, former Vice President Joe Biden, a Democratic presidential candidate from DE, called President Donald Trump's tweets about four Democratic women of color serving in Congress "a flat racist attack".

Our new New Hampshire CNN poll conducted by the University of New Hampshire finds that former Vice President Joe Biden has the support of 24% of Democratic primary voters in the state.

"I knew the Republicans would do everything in their power to try and repeal Obamacare", Biden said in an email to supporters Monday. The health care system is still hard to navigate, meaning many consumers struggle to get the care they need in a timely fashion, make sense of medical bills and understand insurance plans filled with abstruse cost calculations and bureaucratic jargon.

The former vice president's campaign committee, Biden for President, disbursed four payments to Advanced Aviation, an Arlington, Va. -based charter jet company.

The former vice president has spent the past several weeks highlighting his support for the health care law often called "Obamacare". Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris, all single-payer advocates.

Sanders, the lead Senate sponsor of the Medicare for All Act of 2019, contrasted the seniors' response to Biden with the enthusiastic applause Medicare for All received during the Vermont senator's Fox News town hall in April. "But I will not be deterred from ending the corporate greed that creates dysfunction in our health care system". Almost 5 million Americans in states that haven't expanded Medicaid would get premium-free access to Biden's new public option, for instance.

In March, the company lost a case to Hardeman, an American retiree who blames his cancer on the weedkiller. Bayer disagreed with Chhabria's ruling Friday denying the company a new trial.

An appeal to the good old days may be Biden's most effective political tool in 2020 - but voters know nostalgia won't help them pay for their next emergency room visit.

In a video posted to Twitter, Biden called the Affordable Care Act an "historic achievement" that gave 20 million Americans coverage they didn't have before. "And I that's why I think, what I'm proposing - and we can do it - is to keep Obamacare, restore the cuts that have been made, and add a public option", Biden said during an event in Dover, New Hampshire, on Friday.

The survey is the latest early voting state or national poll to suggest a deterioration in Biden's lead following his less-than-stellar performance late last month during the first round of Democratic presidential nomination debates.

By definition, Biden's plan looks a lot like what many proponents of ObamaCare wanted it to be from the onset.

As Joe Biden continued his misleading attacks on single-payer during an AARP forum in Iowa on Monday, Sen. Klobuchar, another White House contender, also backs adding a public option to Obamacare.

Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet, who's pushed a public option on Capitol Hill already, urged Sanders, Harris and Sen.
