Reprehensible. This is a dead party that's stench should obvious to anyone. How braindead do you have to be to not see they are not an opposition and no different from the republicans? Maybe COBRA shouldn't be so expensive - but that'd be too simple. Fine print: during the corona crisis. That part just couldn't make it in the ' 's.

Creepy Joe better be in a bunker somewhere... He’s the poster child for Covid deaths. Maybe don't say the thing where you give a massive handout to the health insurance industry the week Bernie drops out. consider Gloria La Riva No. People are getting extra money in their paycheck/unemployment. If they want healthcare that’s where the money can help

Says the man who didn't think Medicare 4 All was the fix. Guess he is coming around I think a cobra bit Joe Biden. Might explain some of his bizarre ramblings. 🗽🇺🇸 COBRA premiums are usually insanely large amounts - pretty much impossible when you've lost or significantly diminished your income. Gonna say it... If we had single payer health care - this wouldn't be a worry or an issue.

Health Ins. companies should be putting a freeze on premiums since u can't go to a dentist,eye dr, regular dr., cancer specialist, or a cardiologist. I can't use any health benefits I pay for every week, so wouldn't it be fair if they QUIT CHARGING ME FOR A TIME!? Joe Biden also says: 'I have hairy legs that turn blonde in the sun.'

Hey Acosta - $50 Trump doesn't know what COBRA is... cc:MollyJongFast & gtconway3d I’ve never met anyone who doesn’t think this guy is losin it ..politics aside uh huh, keep going... Hail hydra How many takes to get this one sound bite? How will we ever pay for it Joe? I think Joe said it would only cost 700 trillion billion million thousand 100 dollars n 85cents😂😂😂 JoeBiden realDonaldTrump DonaldJTrumpJr

MedicareForAll Apparently he’s always a week behind as Trump has already having the Government flip the bill for treatment or we could just go Medicare for All During Biden’s virtual town hall, he can’t complete sentences even with them spelled out on a teleprompter. JoshMankiewicz Not enough. What about the uninsured?

And we need universal healthcare for all. And Trump said that there were people dying that had never died before. The dude cant even read his teleprompter.

Biden calls for feds to cover COBRA payments amid pandemicSpeaking at a virtual town hall, Joe Biden says future spending bills should include expanded unemployment payments and subsidies for Obamacare, and calls for the federal government to cover COBRA payments. JFC! Once again, working and middle class qualify for nothing! I've had it w/ on-again/off-again health insurance. The ONLY answer is Medicare for All. We don't need bandages We need MedicareForAll

Alyssa Milano Explains Herself After Rose McGowan Calls Her a 'Fraud' for Supporting Joe BidenOn Monday, Milano revealed why she was silent on the resurfaced sexual assault claims against Biden, saying she believes in due process for the presidential nominee before passing judgement. TooFab Always with Alyssa ❤ TooFab At this point isn’t every candidate being accused of some horrible thing they can’t save themselves from? Am I the only one noticing this. Doesn’t make the behaviors okay, but EVERY SINGLE PERSON? Seems a bit much. TooFab She IS a hypocrite. Joe Biden is in video footage and personal stories from previous staffers showing this guy is as bad as Trump when it comes to sexual assault. Bernie can beat Trump. A vote for Biden is a vote for Trump.

Bernie Sanders Drops Out Of Presidential Race, Ceding Nomination To BidenThe senator had a series of poor showings in Democratic primaries around the country, ending hopes for a progressive challenger to President Donald Trump. Congrats on winning the 2020 election realDonaldTrump 🙂👍🏼 💀 Ok

Bernie Sanders Drops Out Of Presidential Race, Ceding Nomination To BidenThe senator had a series of poor showings in Democratic primaries around the country, ending hopes for a progressive challenger to President Donald Trump. “Biden's cognitive issues have been evident for some time but just watch the same media who for four years have been declaring Donald Trump mentally and physically unfit for office have a collective meltdown when Biden's mental faculties are questioned” HuffPost So now the democrats are left with a 78-year old that sometimes seems to wonder what's up. Be wary of who he (or others) choses as the VP candidate. Yahooooooo🤣🤣
