Joe Biden urges building on Obamacare instead of adopting Bernie Sanders’ ‘Medicare for All’

Joe Biden defended the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare, calling for building on it rather than replacing it with the “Medicare for All” system pushed by Sen. Bernie Sanders.

“The quickest fastest way to do it is build on Obamacare, to build on what we did,” Biden said Thursday night during the chaotic second night of the first Democratic debate of the 2020 cycle.

Biden leads the 20-plus candidate presidential primary field in the polls. Sanders usually polls second.
