Joe Biden And Bernie Sanders Have Created a Unity Task Force
Following the 2016 Democratic National Convention, Bernie Sanders was accused of not doing enough to elect Hillary Clinton. Again in 2020, Sanders had a bruising primary period where he was once a favorite, but was then overtaken by Joe Biden.
Following his concession to Biden, though, the Vermont senator has quickly moved to show his support for the former Vice President. The duo even created a Unity Task Force. On Wednesday, they began to reveal some to the important parts of their dual platform.
Sanders and Biden released a 110 page plan. The pair would like to address, “climate change, criminal justice reform, immigration policies, health care, education and the economy.”
Among the ideas in the document in an effort to expand the Affordable Care Act across the country. Other prominent Democrats are members of the task force, including congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and former Secretary of State John Kerry.
Sanders said of the team-up, “While Joe Biden and I, and our supporters, have strong disagreements about some of the most important issues facing our country, we also understand that we must come together in order to defeat Donald Trump the most dangerous president in modern American history.”
Biden remarked, “I am deeply grateful to Senator Sanders for working together to unite our party, and deliver real, lasting change for generations to come.”
