Bernie has signaled his intention to support Biden [View all]

by telling him in advance the questions he wants answered at the debate. He wants his followers to be reassured Biden will at least work on "some" of his policies. Why Biden won't just say that obviously the US would be better off with a Universal Health Care system, and that obviously that won't happen overnight but we will work towards it. If he'd say anything along those lines it would go a long way

I know he's still "old-school" and will probably never agree that health insurance as it exists needs to go but he needs to understand there is a fundamental problem with health insurance. Mine is $12,000/yr in premiums (for myself), and then a nearly $3000 deductible. Meaning, if I don't even see a doctor I still have to pay $12,000 but what am I getting for that? Nothing, nothing at all. It's catastrophic insurance at this point.

Last year I did have an event that put me in intensive care for a week, so I ended up with my deductible and max out-of-pocket being paid by May. The shock the first time I filled a prescription and was told "no cost" I was floored. Took me awhile to figure out why.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
