What Sanders, Biden, And Trump Want To Do About Health Insurance

The coronavirus pandemic has caused millions of Americans to lose their jobs.

And according to Business Insider, that means those same Americans are likely to lose their health insurance, too.

Around half of Americans get their insurance through employers.

Candidates Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, and incumbent President Donald Trump have very different visions for expanding insurance.

Sen.

Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) wants a single-payer, universal, Medicare for all system.

In contrast, former Vice President Joe Biden wants to strengthen the Affordable Healthcare Act and create an optional government health plan.

President Donald Trump hasn't released a healthcare plan since he tried to repeal the Affordable Care Act in 2017.

However, his administration staunchly supports efforts to weaken the law.

Trump also backs a lawsuit that would completely eliminate it.
