Former Vice-President Joe Biden just came out of retirement and is returning to DC to leap back into the political fight to defend Obamacare right before Republicans rush to repeal it.

Joe Biden is a political heavyweight which is why Barrack Obama chose him as Vice-President in the first place. Coming from Biden the message will be clear and get directly to the heart of the pain Americans are about to feel if this law passes.
Tens of millions of Americans gained access to health coverage under Obamacare and tens of thousands of lives were saved by the law Republicans are so eager to repeal. Even Trump voters will feel the pain as Republicans launch a wrecking ball to the health care system as Trump smashes his promise to increase affordability and access to care.
Republican’s “American Health Care Act,” does everything but provide care. According to the Congressional Budget Office calculations, and backed up by the White House’s own Office of Management and budget, as many as 24 million Americans will lose access to their insurance under this new plan. This means tens of thousands more Americans will die unneccessarily of treatable illness every year. This is worthy of strong protest now and at the ballot box in 2018.
