Biden: ‘Health Care Is a Right’ So ‘I Can No Longer Support’ Hyde Amendment

‘I can’t justify leaving millions of women without access to the care they need’

BIDEN: “For many years, as U.S. Senator, I have — I've supported the Hyde Amendment, like many, many others have, but we now see so many Republican governors denying health care to millions of the most poorest, the most vulnerable Americans by refusing even Medicaid expansion. I can’t justify leaving millions of women without access to the care they need and the ability to exercise their constitutionally protected right. If I believe health care is a right, as I do, I can no longer support an amendment that makes that right dependent on someone’s zip code.”
