Joe Biden has made it clear that he will make the repeal of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) a top priority of his upcoming presidency. In light of President Trump’s renewed effort to shelve the ACA, the Obama-Biden Administration’s signature legislative victory, the Democratic Presidential candidate has made it clear that he will utilize the power of the Oval Office to restore the healthcare protection the ACA offers to tens of millions of American families.
At a recent campaign rally, the former Vice President outlined his blueprint for reversing Trump’s rollback of the ACA and its namesake subsidies. Secondarily, Biden has promised to protect and expand individual healthcare options by allowing people to access Medicare as early as 50-years-old, and explicitly protecting those with pre-existing conditions.
Biden’s plan is further buttressed by the vice-presidential pick of Kamala Harris, who shined the limelight on the ACA’s successes while simultaneously pledging her full support of any proposed legislation which seeks to shore up the ACA’s affordability and access.
Should Biden’s plan come to fruition and pass through Congress, the American people will find themselves with greater healthcare protection than ever before.
While Trump’s renewed effort to shelve the ACA is motivated by his political agenda, Biden’s plan is driven by his unwavering commitment to America’s health. From increasing coverage to protecting Americans with pre-existing conditions, Biden’s proposed reforms would strengthen and expand the healthcare protection the ACA provides, and finally put an end to Trump’s reckless attack on healthcare for all.
