Receiving health care should be a right, not a privilage, Joe Biden posted on Twitter, while suggesting to enrole in a program to buy health insurance before Dec. 15.
Some users criticized that none of Biden´s plans were affordable and if health was a right they should not pay to have access to it.
Global health care is the way to go, one of netizens tweeted, while another one stressed that paying ridiculously large sums of money to for-profit insurance companies only benefits those companies.
Joe Biden´s social investment plan included some issues such as lowering prescription drug price, as well as dental and vision coverage for beneficiaries of Medicaid insurance program.
However, those benefits were left out of the package as part of negotiations between Democratic lawmakers who lowered the plan’s funding from $3.5 trillion to $1.75 trillion.
Despite the reduction, the initiative – still stalled in Congress – includes measures to reduce fees of US citizens who buy health insurance through the Affordable Care Act and the inclusion of hearing services for Medicare insurance beneficiaries.
