The individual mandate was the most unpopular aspect of Obamacare. Trump and Republicans managed to repeal it two years ago.
Now Joe Biden is saying he wants to bring it back if he wins the presidency.
The Daily Caller reports:
Biden Vows To Reinstate Obamacare’s Individual Mandate
Democratic presidential front-runner Joe Biden revealed Friday he would reinstate the individual mandate and penalize Americans who do not obtain health care coverage if he were to win the presidency.
“I think there should be health care for everyone. I have a plan how to do that that’s rational, that’ll cost a hell of a lot less and will work,” Biden told CNN’s Chris Cuomo during an interview.
Biden put forth that as a way to guarantee that all Americans receive health care coverage, the federal government would fine any individual who did not obtain sufficient health insurance…
“Yes, yes, I’d bring back the individual mandate,” Biden replied when Cuomo inquired further about the unpopular penalty.
“We’re in a situation where if you provide an option for anybody who in fact wants to buy into Medicare for All, they can buy in,” Biden said. “But if they like their employer-based insurance … they shouldn’t have to give it up.”

If Biden thinks this will be a winning issue, he is gravely mistaken.
No one wants to go back.
