Joe Biden

Ohio Gov. John Kasich and former Vice President Joe Biden are speaking together tomorrow  in Delaware. As WKSU’s M.L. Schultze reports, it’s leading to more talk about Kasich as the GOP’s bipartisan counter to President Trump.

The joint appearance called “As We Stand Divided” is sold out. It’s to focus on how to bridge political and partisan divides in Washington.

A new bipartisan health-care reform proposal meant to stabilize the Affordable Care Act urges President Trump and Congressional leaders to take immediate action. The plan put forth by Republican Ohio Gov. John Kasich and Colorado’s Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper, is drawing praise from some other governors, too. 

The plan calls for continued federal cost-sharing subsidies to insurance companies so they can continue to reduce deductibles and co-pays for low-income people.
