Democratic primary focuses on healthcare

The healthcare debate has moved into the limelight as the Democratic presidential primary race heats up.

According to The Hill, the debate has centered around Medicare-for-all proposals, which have been adopted by several Democratic candidates. Vice President Joe Biden, the current frontrunner in the field of candidates, recently took a swipe at Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) universal healthcare plan, further ramping up the dialogue, The Hill reported.

Candidates are largely split on pushing forward Medicare-for-all or expanding the Affordable Care Act, or ObamaCare.

The ongoing “sniping” between Sanders and Biden also comes at a time when the ACA is under its biggest threat to date as a lawsuit could overturn the entire healthcare law.
