Biden says Buttigieg 'stole' his healthcare planU.S. Democratic presidential contender Joe Biden said on Monday that his fast-rising rival Pete Buttigieg “stole” the former vice president’s healthcare policy proposals, as the two battle for support in the early nominating state of Iowa. Biden, among the leaders in the 16-member Democratic field for the right to take on Republican President Donald Trump in next year’s election, is proposing expanding the Affordable Care Act. Popularly known as Obamacare, the healthcare law was the signature domestic policy achievement of former Democratic President Barack Obama, whom Biden served as No. 2.
