Biden's campaign sent a press release to supporters advertising the gift of a sticker reading "Obamacare: It's a BFD" after his fellow 2020 contenders attacked his health care policy that seeks to "protect and build on Obamacare."


The sticker's message refers to an expletive Biden was recorded uttering to then-President Obama at a 2010 signing ceremony for the Affordable Care Act: "This is a big f---ing deal."

Biden, widely viewed as the front-runner for the Democratic nomination according to most polls, weathered attacks from several fellow 2020 contenders Wednesday night including Sens.

Biden attacked Harris for her "Medicare for All" plan, warning of tax increases and the elimination of employer-based private insurance, continuing a tussle between two front-runners that began in the first debate.

"Your plan does not cover everyone in America,” Harris told Biden Wednesday night, adding: "our plan will bring health care to all Americans under a Medicare for All system"

The central debate is between Harris’s plan of Medicare for All versus Biden’s more moderate plan to give people the option of a government-run plan but also allow private insurance to remain.
