JOE FIRES BACK: Biden Swipes at Sanders, Warren’s ‘Medicare for All’ Proposal

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.21.19

Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden swiped at Sen. Bernie Sanders and Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s healthcare proposal Wednesday; telling workers in Iowa they should be allowed to “keep” their private insurance.

“You’ve negotiated really hard for your benefits — with your union, with the employer. In my plan, you get to keep it. You don’t have to give it up,” said Biden.

“Biden proposes protecting and enhancing the Affordable Care Act – better known as Obamacare – by adding a public option that would give people the ability to purchase a public health insurance option like Medicare,” reports Fox News.

Healthcare is quickly becoming the central issue within the Democratic primary process.

Earlier this week, Sanders slammed Sen. Kamala Harris for refusing to endorse his universal healthcare scheme.

“I don’t go to the Hamptons to raise money from billionaires,” Sanders tweeted. “If I ever visited there, I would tell them the same thing I have said for the last 30 years: We must pass a ‘Medicare-for-all’ system to guarantee affordable health care for all, not just for those who can afford it.”

Harris swiped at Sanders healthcare proposal at the East Hampton event; confirming she “still believes in capitalism.”

“I have not been comfortable with Bernie’s plan,” Harris told potential donors.

Recent polls show Sanders taking the top-spot in New Hampshire; topping Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden by 6%.

“Gravis Marketing has released its first 2020 New Hampshire Democratic Primary poll and finds Sen. Bernie Sanders sitting atop the Democratic Primary field with 21% of the vote.  Former Vice President Joe Biden took second place with 15% of New Hampshire Democratic primary goers supporting him. Behind Sanders and Biden, Sen. Warren is at 12% respectfully followed by Mayor Buttigieg with 8%, Sen. Kamala Harris at 7%, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard at 5%, Andrew Yang and Tom Steyer each with 4%, and Rep. Julian Castro and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke at 2%,” reports the Polling Firm.

“It is important to note that Sen. Sanders won the New Hampshire Democratic Primary in 2016,” Doug Kaplan, President of Gravis Marketing stated. “However, it is unlikely that Sen. Sanders will have a repeat of his 2016 performance in the state due to the number of candidates in the race this time.”

Other polls show Sen. Sanders and Elizabeth closing the gap with Biden in Iowa, California, and Nevada.

BERNIECARE: Sanders Unveils ‘Medicare for All’ Plan, Will Eliminate Private Insurance, Cost $30T

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.10.19

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders unveiled his latest ‘Medicare for All’ proposal Wednesday; announcing his plan to transform Medicare into a full-fledged universal healthcare program during a four-year transition that would eliminate private insurance companies.

“Sanders’ plan is the most ambitious by far of Democrats’ slate of bills aimed at expanding health coverage, proposing a total restructuring of the the national health care system that would effectively eliminate employer sponsored insurance and other government programs like Medicaid,” reports Politico.

Sanders’ plan would also bar employers and businesses from providing healthcare options that compete with the government-run insurance scheme.

While the proposal doesn’t specify the associated costs, experts say the program would likely cost $30 trillion over the next decade.
