Personal | Joe Biden for President


I was sworn into the United States Senate next to a hospital bed. My wife and daughter, they’d been killed in a car crash. And lying in that bed were my two surviving little boys. I couldn’t imagine what it would’ve been like if we didn’t have the health care they needed immediately. Forty years later, one of those little boys, my son, Beau, was diagnosed with terminal cancer, and given only months to live. I can’t fathom what would’ve happened if the insurance companies had said, for the last six months of his life, “you’re on your own.” The fact of the matter is, health care is personal to me. Obamacare is personal to me. And when I see the President try to tear it down, and others propose we replace it and start over, that’s personal to me, too. We’ve got to build on what we did because every American deserves affordable health care. I’m Joe Biden, and I approve this message.

  1. I see the russians hired a ton of mouthbreathers and ethnic sellouts to attack Joe. It won't work. You can all eat another one.

  2. I promote the OPTION for single payer system, I will also support Medicare for all so long as private insurance companies are an option. I like Obama's original plan of a government ran health insurance provider that is legal in all states, and then private insurance companies on the side for those willing to pay out of the nose for premium care and to skip the lines. First thing is first, basic care for everyone. Second thing is next, the LIBERTY to go beyond basic care.

  3. I donโ€™t understand why there are more likes than dislikes for this crap. Be sure to give a thumbs down ๐Ÿ‘Ž if you agree

  4. How many people are choosing between going bankrupt and staying sick/dying right now. Joe Biden really needs to step aside right now. His wife who's a doctor even says there is other candidates that better on Medicare. This ad is disgusting and you will be losing support because of it.

  5. I appreciate the effort on the aca but you're wrong, Joe. My health insurance says no plenty. The biggest barrier to me getting the care I need is insurance. You cannot provide everyone with real affordable healthcare when profit for insurance companies is the primary goal. How many people have died since Obamacare was implemented because they couldn't afford the premiums, deductibles, copays, and the networks prevented them from seeing the right doctors. Continuing to try the same thing when it's proven disastrous and lethal when every other developed nation has figured out that single payer is the best solution is insanity. This is one of the major reasons I support you dropping out of the race.

  6. It's crazy that Tulsi Gabbard is being excluded from debates. She's over 2% in 30 polls. This is after 2 weeks training with the Hawaii Nat'l Guard rather than campaigning! Is she being punished for placing service to country ahead of campaign? She stood up for Bernie Sanders in 2016, and made a lot of enemies. He needs to do the right thing and throw Tulsi a lifeline. Pressure needs to be applied to Sanders, Warren, Biden and Yang. This is no way to treat a soldier. Please stand up for Tulsi! Keep her in the debates!

  7. Richard Bisk

    In November 2020, the choice will be between 4 more years of the current horror show or the Democratic candidate. Please remember that when you vote. My favorite Democratic candidate is the one most likely to win. Unfortunately I don't know who that is, so I appreciate all of them.

  8. Wow. Reading these comments confirms what I thought…..all the supporters of other candidates will jump up and down and accuse him of "using" his kids. Give me a break. Its certainly better than locking kids in cages! Also, he didn't say that ACA paid for their care or that he didn't have the money for their insurance. He in fact said that he was lucky that there was insurance to care for them. I worked on the Hill and there is a reason that people love Joe Biden…. (I don't know a person up there, R or D, who doesn't have respect for him)…he is a real human being and someone who cares for all people…even those of you who are working so hard to criticize him for telling his story and telling us why health care policy is important to him. I actually believe in Medicare for All, but I believe we need to get the crook out of the oval office MORE before we can pull this country back together. So how about this: let's not do what the Bernie or Bust folks did last time to help elect the orange idiot by holding their breath and stomping their feet and not voting because they didn't get their way. Let's support our candidates and when the nominee is selected, let's all work to unseat Trump. If we don't, all you nightmare healthcare scenarios will likely come true and it won't be Biden's fault.

  9. Healthcare is personal to everyone, not just Joe and the Insurance companies. Obamacare is a profit centered system designed to keep poor people out of the healthcare "market."

  10. Obamacare/ACA just Heritage Foundation RomneyCare – guaranteed business for health insurance extrortionists. Scumbags like Lieberman and Baucus sabotaged the public option. America demands expanded, improved medicare-for-all #M4A. UN WHO has 2030 #UHC goal. Get lost, sorry Uncle Joe!

  11. Kirsten Gillibrand 2020!!! Don't lose your chance, vote!

  12. Now do the one about how your son's cancer inspired you to author Plan Colombia and put thousands of people in mass graves.

  13. Shame on you for using your family tragedies to pretend you care about healthcare. You misrepresent those who want healthcare for all, while thousands still die every year because Obamacare just isn't enough.

  14. Obamacare gives the Republicans more fodder to come back and fight the Democrats all over again in 4 years. If we have Universal healthcare for all, we eliminate all future fights and cover 100% of the people forever. Obamacare is a bandaid, not a solution because not everyone can afford it and we are still stuck with corporations rationing who gets covered or not. Biden, stop trying to save a sinking ship.

  15. Until you get sick or someone you love gets sick the importance of having affordable health insurance is hard to understand until you experience for yourself. Not just the feeling of having a safety net if you get sick. Actually getting sick and having a ton of health insurance bills and feeling grateful insurance can pay the bulk portion. If you have no insurance you could be billed thousands and thousands of dollars. Hard to understand until it happens to you.

  16. Biden will get eaten alive by Trump in debates. Heโ€™s too weak and slow, and a sleeping pill… Iโ€™m sorry. Heโ€™s a really nice man, but thatโ€™s how I feel.
    Besides, nothing would change in the US if he would become President. Weโ€™d just get more of the same old stuff.

  17. Joe, your health is failing. Also, Obamacare was a half step because universal single payer healthcare was not yet politically viable. That has changed. Please drop out of the race and care for your own health. The rigors of the campaign will not be good for you. The actual presidency would be worse, if you actually won.

  18. It's very sad, Joe. Boo hoo. Meanwhile, if you're elected, nothing will change in America. You can't and won't fight for us. You can't even find your asshole to wipe right now, Joe. Day after day, it's gaffe after gaffe. Drop out, Joe. Stop being selfish.

  19. For all you Biden fans, have you not seen all the creepy videos of him fondling little girls? So you want a pedophile in office? Really? What the hell is wrong with you?

  20. Please pass the torch. We don't need another Alzheimers / Reagan situation in the White House, and your aids will protect the public from learning of your declining health until serious issues have been passed by. We need someone we can count on, and honestly, you're too old.

  21. Your son sure as hell doesn't have Obama Care for insurance nor do you and nor would you. BTW is that the same son who getting millions from the Ukraine?

  22. Using your son's death so you can push the agendas of insurance companies, right Joe?

    Can Joe go any lower? Is Joe the greatest limbo dancer?

  23. Conflating Trumpโ€™s efforts to destroy healthcare with the Democratsโ€™ efforts to fix it is disgusting. No two ways about it.

  24. You literally make no real substantive argument against Medicare for All. You try to conflate it with Trump trying to repeal without a replacement. Medicare for All is how you build on Obamacare. All you do is say "build on OC" without saying how you want to build on it. It's grotesque that you're trying to use the death of your son to argue against M4A. Clearly we have more respect your son than you do.

  25. I don't know what nutjob thought this was a good campaign ad, but you should fire them and pull this add from every platform. It honestly makes you look like trash, Mr. Biden.

  26. How long did it take your think tanks to write this "personal" message exploiting your family for the sake of a cheque from immoral insurance companies?

    This trainwreck is hard to watch. Pull out of the race Joe. Something terrible is clearly going on with your mental health.

  27. The only reason your family ever got health coverage is because you were a rich senator! Your policies DENY average families the same coverage that you praise. What a reprehensible POS. If you genuinely cared, why wouldnโ€™t you do anything to make sure everyone had the best healthcare available instead of your shitty system?

  28. Really low Joe…………………………..REALLY F-ing LOW! As a congress person you have healthcare buddy…………..You should just drop out!

  29. Joe Biden………….supporting healthcare middlemen who get rich off of denying you care! And using his late son to shill for Insurance companies.

  30. yes, elect me to solve all the problems I was point man for creating in the first place. At your prime you were a dweeby suckup with zero charisma and all the charm of a timeshare salesman. Now you're like a fish on a dock, thrashing for air, hopeless. ByeDone, Mediocre for ALL!!! Enjoy the last year or two until dementia takes the rest of you.

  31. I'm sorry he lost members of his family… I truly am… but he's using it in his campaign to get a sympathy vote and that's not okay

  32. Joe this is shameful. Using your family tragedies to promote the corporate greed of the insurance industry. You're burying your favorable legacy former vice President Biden. You will not be looked upon favorably in the atolls of history if you steal this nomination away from Mr Sanders.

  33. When you get upgraded to first class, you donโ€™t complain that you were kicked out of coach. Donโ€™t pull this nonsense about how Obamacare would be โ€œdestroyedโ€ if we expanded Medicare to cover every US citizen, we know youโ€™re lying to preserve insurance company profits, Joe.

  34. Man you are a pathetic piece of garbage Joe Biden. Using youโ€™re children that just lost their mother as political props!? Kharma

  35. ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž

  36. You ought to be ashamed! If this isnโ€™t the kiss of death for your presidential campaign, then I donโ€™t know whatโ€™s wrong with this country. This is so gross.

  37. Please donโ€™t run sir. So many will vote for the opponent if you win. You will not make the difference we want. Step away or we will see 4 more years of trump. You are a Hillary repeat.

  38. You all want medical for all, good thing, dont forget obama wanted it too, you keep forgetting that there is something called Congress , Senate and supreme court. So when you fight for warran and sanders ,think of how they will bypass these three element and give you Medicare for all. Even if Sanders or warran becomes the president, remember this, they will never be able to give you medical for all and they both no it becos they are senators, but they are smart , they known how to get people on their side, by making empty promises, then later blame Senate and Congress for blocking it, which they knew from the start, Sanders and Warren knowse the end game , but supporters will not see it coming. We need moderate candidate, biden and Mayor bitt for president and vis. Something that can pass these elements is moderate candidate

  39. Democrats at there best. Will try anything to get votes even the exploitation of his dead family.
    Biden for town idiot…that an election I can get behind.

  40. Wow has he no shame?
    He gutted healthcare with his buddy Obama.
    Whereโ€™s my $2,500 savings?
    Whereโ€™s my Doctor?
    Whereโ€™s my plan?
    You destroyed healthcare and anyone that votes for you is a fool that didnโ€™t learn from all your other lies about Obamacare.

  41. Obamacare the bronze plan 2018 price 1700 dollars a month 15,000 dollar deductible for a family of 4. I no longer have insurance. This is the bronze plan and if you are self employed this is all you can purchase. We don't get a subsidy we are the payers. Small business is paying…Obamacare.

  42. You think joe Biden is on affordable health care , my bet he has some private plan that no working class person could afford donโ€™t be fooled this clown son got a billion dollar deal from China when he was vise President

  43. This ad has more dislikes than likes, and rightly so. They could have done his swearing in outside the hospital room, but Joe allowed it to be done in the room and allowed those pics to be taken of his injured kids while in their beds.

  44. Funny part is he had his chance in 2016, but he choose not to act on it. And I get it you lost your son, and your going though grief. The problem here is he wants to be the hero of the day. He is not a hero, we don't need that. We need a leader, and we need a problem solver outside of the standard political process at the moment.
    Biden want to be the hero, and he should just stop. His parading his tragedies is reason for not to vote for him. If he wants to help he should not run, but spot the candidates that are running. I know we have slim Pickens, but we all have to reevaluate who really deserves this responsibility. Not job responsibility, because right now we have a president that is irresponsible. But hey those are my two cents.

  45. Message to the globalist elites. You are in the middle of a complete dismantling of all corrupt systems around the globe.

    Everything out of integrity is coming to the surface. There are no more secrets and there is zero chance of stopping what's playing out.

    It began in the "Fall of 2016". From that marker, forward, you've had no traction; served only to expose yourselves; drained vast resources; and imploded strongholds around the globe.

    What's next is the complete exposure and dismantling of MSM… ie CNN & NYT will close their doors soon; arrested for hiding crimes against humanity.

    Globalism failed. Everything that was hidden, comes to light now; everything! You can't stop this evolution of humanity. It is beyond your perception to see or understand what is unfolding right now.

    When humanity discovers who you are and what you have done, can you imagine what that looks like?

    What does it look like when an overpowering number of slaves rise up across all nations?

    I'm posting this because there is no more fence-sitting. If you do not come into integrity, you will lose everything. Nothing can stop this evolutionary shift.

    If you think I might be wrong, how did you lose so much control, so fast, across all industries? Why has every strategy and manipulation backfired, since 2016? How is it that everything you do serves only to reveal more corruption and more truth?

    There is no time left to play the game. You either speak the truth or go down with the ship. The world is waking up.

  46. This video is disgusting. Biden says of his son Bo, "I can't fathom what would have happened if the insurance companies had said for the last six months of his life 'You're on your own.' By Biden's own admission his plan would only cover 97% of Americans, leaving 9.9 million people to face this very situation of no healthcare. This is not how a leader behaves, this is the behavior of a coward.

  47. Dear Mr. Biden,

    When your late son died in 2015, wasn't America already under Obamacare?

    Wouldn't it make sense to replace Obamacare?

    If so, why would you oppose Medicare-for-All?

    Assuming our healthcare is personal to you.

    BERNIE… OR BUST 2020.
