"My son died from cancer also," a woman told Biden. "He couldn't get treatment."

This is an excellent article that talks about how Biden's loss of his son to cancer is affecting how he campaigns -- and how people are relating to him on the campaign trail.

It's called "Biden's personal loss emerges as a touchstone on the campaign trail"

This shows that politics really is about people.

"Voters are sharing their own experiences with cancer and grief as the former vice president campaigns for the White House."

Four years ago Thursday, Biden lost his eldest son, Beau, a rising political star in his own right, after a battle with brain cancer. It was a moment that changed the future for the then-vice president and potentially the nation.

2. Medicare4All is not the only way to go. Why reinvent the wheel? We know two things

 

A majority of Americans now like ACA.
Substantial millions like their employer provided coverage.

We have a variety of ways to get to universal coverage. Medicare4All is but one way, not necessarily the best. Your post offers Biden a false choice.

3. Biden supports the public option

 

which has a much better chance of becoming law than Medicare for All.
