Virtual Debates: 2020 Presidential Candidate

Joe Biden

I'm running to lead this country because I think it's important to restore the soul of this nation. This president has ripped it out. He is the only president who has equated racist and white supremacist with ordinary and decent people. He is the only president who has actively engaged and embraced dictators and thumbed their nose at out allies. And secondly, I'm running for president because I think we have to restore the backbone of America, the poor and hard-working middle-class people. You can't do that without restoring the dignity they once had. And the last thing, we've got to unite the United States of America as much as anybody says we can't. If we do, there is not a single thing the American people can't do. This is the United States of America. We can do anything if we are together. Together. God Bless you All. And God protect our troops.

Crime

I beat the NRA before and we need to do it again. And by the way, use technology so that you cannot fire a gun unless it has your biometric prints on it. And that means no problem in terms of the second amendment and you have to pass the background checks that I put into law as a consequence of the Brady agreement.

Health Care

We need to save and build upon the Affordable Care Act, not jettison it. 20 million people are covered that weren't before. Over 130 million people with pre-existing conditions. I was never prouder any other day than when we got done what no other president could do. And folks, we have to finish the job. Under my plan you will be able to buy into a public option like medicare. And if you don't have the money you will automatically be enrolled in that.

Education

12 years are no longer enough to prepare for the jobs of the 21st century. I want to triple Title I funding for schools that are in distress. We need to fund universal pre-k, we need to raise teacher's salaries, we have to fully fund special education, and we have to double the number of school psychologists and guidance counselors, and nurses. We can afford free community colleges - cutting in half the cost of a 4-year degree, and we have to reduce the student debt.

Drug Policy

No one should be going into prison because they are addicted, they should be going into rehabilitation. Mandatory treatment in jail for people who also suffer from addiction. Decriminalize marijuana and also expunge records for those who have been convicted.

Environment

Climate change threatens communities across the country, from beachfront coastal towns to rural farms in the heartland. We must turbocharge our efforts to address climate change and ensure that every American has access to clean drinking water, clean air, and an environment free from pollutants.

Foreign Policy

First and foremost, we must enforce existing trade laws and invest in the competitiveness of our workers and communities here at home, so that they complete on a level playing field. Then, we need to write the rules of the road for international trade through a modern, inclusive process—rules that protect our workers, safeguard the environment, uphold labor standards and middle-class wages, foster innovation, and take on big global challenges like corporate concentration, corruption, and climate change.
