Bleeding Heartland: Biden releases health care plan in Des Moines
Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland
I'll be honest, I haven't had a chance to read the whole thing yet.
But you can see the highlights here… Skimming the plan, it appears
that Biden would not make health insurance mandatory, so this is not
quite a universal health care plan (as Edwards and Clinton have
proposed). Under Biden's plan, all children would be covered, and
steps would be taken to improve adults' access to health insurance,
including a Federal Employee Health Benefit Buy-In and a Medicare
Buy-In for adults age 55 to 64. This seems most similar to Obama's
health care proposal, which also would put us on the road toward
covering all children and more adults.
