Joe Biden, for example, talked about working to set up a plan with a $1,000 cap on out-of-pocket payments. He said he that wants to restore everything that’s been cut from the Affordable CAre Act (ACA) and add a public option.

But he repeatedly contrasted his ACA fixer proposal with Sanders’ Medicare for All proposal.
