Trump killed it and now Joe want’s to bring it back from the dead…
President Trump got rid of Obamacare’s individual mandate for a reason.
It was a joke. People hated it.
Joe Biden doesn’t care, though. If he becomes president (on his third try), he’s going to bring it back.
Joe Biden, former vice president and 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful, said Friday he would bring back the individual mandate, the penalty for not having health insurance, which was a pillar of the Affordable Care Act.
“Yes, I’d bring back the individual mandate,” Biden said in an interview on CNN. The individual mandate would be popular now, “compared to what’s being offered,” he added.
Biden played an integral part in crafting the ACA, commonly known as Obamacare. However, President Donald Trump eliminated the individual mandate in 2017 by signing the Republican tax bill, effective the 2019 tax year.
Biden: “If you provide an option for anybody who in fact wants to buy into Medicare for All, they can buy in… But if they like their employer-based insurance, which a lot of unions broke their neck to get… they shouldn’t have to give it up” https://t.co/tDM9CsVNv8 pic.twitter.com/sQw4q65gou
