071519 432

Joe Biden is taking an aggressive approach to defending the Affordable Care Act, challenging not just President Donald Trump but also some of his Democratic Presidential Rivals in the Iowa Caucuses.   Many of them want to replace the current insurance system with a fully government-run model.

Biden today said his plan would add a "public option" to the 2010 health care overhaul, with expanded coverage paid for by raising taxes on the wealthiest Americans.

He's repeatedly touted his support for the health care law, often called Obamacare, during recent stops in early voting states. Biden will be in Siouxland tomorrow. In the afternoon Biden will be at Floyd Valley Healthcare to talk about his health care plan and he will be in Sioux City tomorrow night for an appearance.
