Could the third time be the charm for former Vice President Joe Biden?  Biden is once again running for the White House.  He's run in 1988 and 2008 unsuccessfully.  So far, the Biden campaign appears to be the only serious threat to the reelection of President Donald John Trump.  What does Joe have going for him that other Democrats are missing?Some political experts believe it's Biden's name idea.  He did serve all eight years as former President Barrack Obama's number two.  Other say it's the former Delaware Senator's blue collar appeal.  Biden currently has a 30 point lead over the next leading Democrat Vermont Senator and avowed socialist, Bernie Sanders.  Could healthcare be the reason why Biden is cleaning up on the Democratic field?


The former vice president is backing a proposal to give free healthcare to everyone in the United States, not just those living here legally.When asked by reporters at a campaign stop in Los Angeles if illegal immigrants should receive benefits such as Medicare and Medicaid, the top Democratic presidential candidate said, "Regardless of whether they are documented or undocumented, we have an obligation to see that they are cared for."

Biden's proposal is a far cry from President Trump's when it comes to healthcare and immigration.  No word on how much Biden's 'healthcare for all' would cost the American Taxpayer.  Expect Republicans and his fellow Democrats to attack his proposal until Biden provides specifics.
