Former Vice President Joe Biden has broken his silence to take on the Republicans on Healthcare. Biden took down Trump and the Republicans in an epic tweetstorm.

Biden cares a lot about healthcare because he tragically lost his son to cancer back in 2015.

So Biden’s been on the forefront of fighting for better healthcare for his fellow Americans. For instance, he established the Biden Cancer Initiative with his wife Dr. Jill Biden.

As a result, Joe Biden takes the Republican’s assault on our nation’s healthcare system personally. He can’t stand by and watch as the GOP and Trump take away health insurance from millions of people.

So Biden started a tweetstorm to call out the Republicans for their evil hypocrisy. He started out by calling Trumpcare what it is: a massive transfer of wealth from the middle class and the poor to the top 1%.

Biden tweeted, “The Senate health bill isn’t about health care at all—it’s a wealth transfer: slashes care to fund tax cuts for the wealthy & corporations.”

But Biden didn’t stop there. He also pointed out the horrible consequences of cutting Medicaid.

The Republicans want to cut federal Medicaid expenditures by reducing payments to the states. They’re also putting a stop to Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion.

The GOP will use those Medicaid cuts to pay for a tax break for the wealthy. But these cuts will hurt kids, the disabled, and the elderly.

Trumpcare also cuts funding for addiction treatments. And these cuts come at a time when many communities that supported Trump are suffering from an opioid addiction epidemic.

Biden continued, “Slashing Medicaid hurts kids, the elderly, people with disabilities and those struggling with addiction. All for tax breaks for the wealthy.”

Biden joined the calls for a better bill that actually protects the health of Americans. The American Medical Association, AARP, and American Hospital Association have also called on the Republicans to tear up Trumpcare and start over.
