Any news on Biden's Healthcare plan?

I'm praying Americans get real relief on Healthcare. I'd like another job and don't want to be tied to my benefits. I realize he and Kamala have a lot on their plates.

8. Thanks! And to XanaDUer2

I did NOT mean to make fun of your request and if it bothered you I am sorry. It's just, well, you know, TRUMP!

I have NO idea what plans are in place regarding that - I am overwhelmed just thinking about what Joe & Company are facing on Wednesday, especially with ALL of the "cooperation" they got from BunkerBoy!

On the campaign trail I believe his platform was calling for "polishing, refining, cleaning" the "Obamacare" coverage. At least THAT program was not totally destroyed by the RepubliCons at this point and one might expect that it will get better as the new Biden administration settles in.

Again, no "disrespect" and let's all work for and hope for the best for Joe & Company!

3. I can't resist

I'm sure he will have something in 2 weeks. Except, I really think that something really will be out in a couple of weeks, unlike tRump

7. I want us all to own our own health plans. Not an employer plan that you lose if you leave the job.

Would be good for businesses as they would no longer have to deal with it at all.
If they want to pay part as a benefit thats fine.
Or not and just increase salaries accordingly.

Would be good for everyone else as they have stability.

Would be good for health care industry because people could stay on plans long term.

It could be a public option or it could be private and well regulated or a hybrid. I really dont care.

It needs protections from excessive profiteering and guarantees of services.

Wealthy people can still have all the lamborghini care they want to pay for.

11. I know he proposed lowering Medicare eligiblity to age 60

This is the way to get to universal Medicare for all.

Gradually reduce the age to qualify in 5 year increments.

Lower it to age 60 this year and to age 55 two years from now.

Keep lowering the age to qualify in this manner until you have everyone eligible.

It would take time, but is the only way to wean the country off private for profit health insurance and not cause a huge economic disruption at the same time.

15. I suspect it will be part of the reconciliation bill

The one Sen Sanders will be working on as head of the budget committee.
