LTE: Joe Biden is the president we need

Joe Biden is a patriotic leader who believes in the principles of our constitution and cares about the well-being of our country. He is a unifying force in a time of great divisiveness. 

Biden supports a health care system that includes every individual and family, an economy that provides opportunities for all working people, and an educational system that offers excellent education to all students.

As vice president in the Obama administration, Joe Biden led the fight to pass the Affordable Care Act, which enabled more than 20 million Americans to obtain health insurance and banned insurance companies from denying coverage to those with pre-existing conditions. Today, he is a strong advocate for reducing the cost of prescription medications, lowering the Medicare eligibility age, and adding a public option to the Affordable Care Act. 

During the COVID-19 pandemic Joe Biden has been a powerful voice for national leadership and a strong critic of Donald Trump’s weak and ineffectual response to this crisis.

Jobs and wages are at the center of Biden’s agenda. He is committed to “an updated social contract that treats American workers and working families as essential at all times, not just times of crisis — with higher wages, stronger benefits, and fair and safe workplaces.” Joe Biden is a strong advocate for American small businesses, entrepreneurs, and manufacturers.

Biden’s education agenda includes supporting teachers by giving them the pay and dignity they deserve; bringing needed health and mental health support into our schools; investing in high-quality, universal pre-kindergarten; and taking all necessary steps to ensure that every student, regardless of income, race, or disability, is fully prepared to succeed.

Joe Biden is the leader we need.

In November, we have an opportunity to restore the soul of our nation by voting for Joe Biden to be our next president.
