During the last Democratic debate we got two very different takes on what the American healthcare system should look like. The two leading progressive candidates, Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, strongly advocated for a universal healthcare system, while Joe Biden, the leading moderate candidate, proposed an expansion and improvement of Obamacare.
It’s been a busy week on Capitol Hill. Maybe you’d heard. Lost in the presidential politics and Democratic din, the House paused on Wednesday to finally deliver a bipartisan whooping to an unpopular element of the Affordable Care Act. By a vote of 419-6, the so-called “Cadillac Tax” is no more, dead before it was allowed to begin. The tax, designed to keep health care costs down, had early supporters in each party, but was widely opposed by both.
According to the Real Clear Politics poll average, the leaders for Demoractic Presidential nomination are (first place) former Vice President Joe Biden (D), (second place) Sen. Bernie Sander (D), (third place) Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D), and (forth place) Sen. Kamala Harris. Three of the top four Democratic candidates are planing on nationalizing our health care system according their latest debate answers.
