How Joe Biden Protects Health Insurance Over Americans’ Health



Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Dr. Philip Verhoef, a Board Member of Physicians for a National Health Program.

In an interview on MSNBC, Democratic Party frontrunner Joe Biden claimed that as President he would veto a bill establishing Medicare for All if it were to pass Congress.

Seemingly out of touch with voters who overwhelmingly demand a national health program and cite healthcare as a top election issue, Biden spouted the same objections to expanding Medicare as health insurance industry proponents have.

Biden’s tone-deafness is particularly jarring in the face of the current coronavirus crisis where the US’s wholly inadequate health system is proving deadly.
