It’s so difficult to look at Fmr. President Obama and Fmr. VP Joe Biden knowing what we had, and what we face now.
As Republicans speed up their attempt to repeal Obamacare, we are hearing stories about how this action will devastate Americans who desperately need this coverage.
But it isn’t just normal Americans who will feel the pain.
Joe Biden gave an interview where he described what his family went through when his son Beau was dying of brain cancer. He also talks about his love for his friend Obama. But this isn’t just a story about friendship. The VP shows us just how badly we need to keep the ACA when he shares how Obama supported him while his son was dying.
From The Washington Post:
In the interview with CNN, the vice president said he had told Obama over one of their regular private lunches that if his son Beau were forced to step down his position as Delaware’s attorney general and lose his income because of the brain cancer that ultimately killed him, the vice president and his wife Jill would have to sell their home to pay for Beau’s medical expenses.
He said Obama told him not to do that.
“He said ‘I’ll give you the money. Whatever you need, I’ll give you the money. Don’t, Joe. Promise me. Promise me,’” Biden told CNN.
Biden: "I don't like Obama. I love him." https://t.co/f7G6TjSp73
