FORT DODGE, Iowa (Reuters) – U.S. Democratic presidential contender Joe Biden said on Monday that his fast-rising rival Pete Buttigieg “stole” the former vice president’s healthcare policy proposals, as the two battle for support in the early nominating state of Iowa.
Biden, among the leaders in the 16-member Democratic field for the right to take on Republican President Donald Trump in next year’s election, is proposing expanding the Affordable Care Act.
The article goes on to state the following:
Popularly known as Obamacare, the healthcare law was the signature domestic policy achievement of former Democratic President Barack Obama, whom Biden served as No. 2.
While speaking to reporters on his campaign bus in Iowa, Biden reportedly accused Buttigieg of stealing his plan, and asked what would have happened in a reverse situation: “He stole it! What would you have done to me? You’d have torn my ears off.”
However, Reuters reported that a spokesman for Buttigieg’s campaign “pointed to statements by Buttigieg about “Medicare for all who want it” that pre-date Biden’s current presidential campaign.”
Joe Biden told reporters in Iowa Monday that Pete Buttigieg “stole” his health care plan, the WSJ and other outlets report.
