We have a full blown pandemic raging across this country…….and yet all the info we get about the 2020 election is dribbles that amount to nothing.
Let me help with what I see from Biden.
Looks like Biden will be the nominee…..and I have been showing my readers why I do not support him……but that aside in this time of national emergency I would like to give my thoughts and such on the presumptive nominee and his health stands.
Let me say here….that I do not want you to think as I do because I tell you so…….I am just pointing to the flaws in his nature that I feel will not do anything to make American’s lives any better than they are now. (2020)
What about Biden and health care…..we hear a lot about what is wrong with Bernie and his policies but Biden gets a free ride because he is anointed to run and beat Trump……well that is crap in my mind.
So let us look at Biden’s health care possibilities…..
Whatever the significance of Joe Biden’s victory in last week’s Super Tuesday primary, it’s not good news for the 28 million Americans who have no health insurance — at least according to Wall Street.
We know this because health insurance stocks surged the day after Tuesday’s vote, for a simple reason: Biden suits the interests of for-profit health insurers better than Bernie Sanders, and what’s good for private insurers has historically proved not good for the uninsured.
The Vermont senator, Biden’s principal competitor last week, supports a healthcare-finance system that would cover everyone, principally by marginalizing private insurers. By contrast, Biden calls merely for expanding and improving the 10-year-old Affordable Care Act (or ACA, aka Obamacare), a marketplace made up of private insurers. Now that Sanders has been demoted from frontrunner, the threat to insurer earnings is a lot less ominous than it might have seemed two weeks ago.
Biden would expand coverage with the so-called public option, allowing anyone to buy insurance from a government provider. That would have “very little effect, if any, on the private insurer’s role,” says James Kahn, emeritus professor of health policy at the University of California, San Francisco. “So they’re happy to see what looks like Biden headed toward the nomination.”
As an old fart and retired I am always looking to see just where the candidates are on health care…..especially of us elderly……and Biden gives me NO confidence that I will continue to be cared for…..
oe Biden has surged since the South Carolina primary, and the received wisdom is that this was mainly because of the perception by his voters that he was the most electable candidate against President Donald Trump. But there are some potential pitfalls that have not yet surfaced, and some of them concern voters who are currently among Biden’s strongest base of support: Americans over 65 years old.
Biden has proposed a plan for health care reform that has quite literally left senior citizens out in the cold.
This could become increasingly, and vitally, important as the threat of coronavirus increases exponentially. Older Americans are at a vastly higher risk than the general population; people over 65 have accounted for the vast majority of deaths in other countries.
Yes before the attacks begin….I support Medicare For All…..but that does not make me a supporter of Bernie…..at this time…..
I will search for the right candidate for me…..you see I still vote on principles and refuse to hold my nose and vote.
Plus I know that if for some reason Biden losses his race against Trump it will be my fault for not voting for a candidate that I do not support…..like Hillary’s loss was my fault not that she was a terrible candidate…..I shall bear with it….for I have been blamed before for a Dems loss……
