Biden backs free health care and college tuition


JOE Biden says he will support free health insurance and college tuition if he wins the US Presidential election.

In an Elle magazine interview with rap star Cardi B, the Democratic hopeful said: ‘There’s no reason why we can’t have all of that.’ 

However, taxpayers would have to fund the schemes, with Biden saying ‘no corporation should pay less than 15 per cent tax’.

His remarks came as the Democratic Party holds its first online National Convention because of coronavirus lockdown restrictions – but also because of police refusal to provide security.

Regardless of their opinions, all viewers will remain silent, and doubts persist over the buzz the ‘Big Tent’ convention, without its usual chants and cheers, is likely to create. 

Showing  pre-recorded, rather than live speeches, the Convention has already run into problems. Former First Lady Michelle Obama, for example, reportedly recorded her speech before Biden announced Kamala Harris as his running mate. 

The Republicans will face similar issues next week when they host their first online convention.

Unsurprisingly, race (or, as the convention’s host put it, ‘ongoing systemic racial injustice’) featured heavily in the Democrats’ first evening’s agenda, with Washington DC Mayor Muriel Bowser, speaking in front of a plaza named after Black Lives Matter.
