Joe Biden is coming out of retirement to fight the GOP health bill

Source: Vox



Updated by Tara Golshan Mar 20, 2017, 1:40pm EDT

Former Vice President Joe Biden will be back in Washington, DC, this week to protest the Republican plan to replace Obamacare — just one day before the House is scheduled to vote on the health bill.

Biden will be joining House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on the steps of the Capitol Building Wednesday to speak out against the GOP health bill that, thus far, is estimated to cover millions fewer people. The rally will feature Americans who have benefited from the Affordable Care Act, Politico reported.

The House is gearing up to vote on the American Health Care Act on Thursday — the seven-year anniversary of Obamacare being signed into law. On Wednesday, the bill will be marked up by the House Rules Committee, where House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) is expected to submit a manager’s amendment — a package of changes in order to make the health bill passable on the House floor. What those changes will look like specifically is still under wraps, but over the weekend Ryan indicated that the bill needs to do more for seniors.

As is, Ryan has acknowledged that the health bill cannot pass the House. Last week the bill received a devastating score from the Congressional Budget Office, which estimated 24 million people would likely lose insurance because of the replacement plan. Among those most impacted would be older and sicker Americans.
