Reaction of liberal analyst Cathy Areu and Republican strategist ash Wright.

The former Vice-President, Joe Biden, for months, touted his moderate positions on the radical platform of the rival Bernie Sanders, I-Vt sen. — but he has a significant curve to the left on a number of issues, as he locks the courts of Sanders’ progressive base and tried to take the nomination.

Biden has even gone so far as to say he is the adoption of parts-offers from Sanders himself, as well as former presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass was.

Here is a look at the front of the Democratic primary candidates in the developing platform is:


Free College

A key feature of Sanders’ platform has to offer his free college for all. Biden now says that he is a fan, but placed a limit on his proposal that Sanders rejects.

“Bernie has proposed a plan of public colleges and universities would be free of charge for families whose income is under $125,000. It is a good idea, and after consideration, I add proudly that it is my platform,” tweeted Biden on Sunday.

Sanders ” campaign mentioned in the answer of the democratic socialist plan, no income-based restrictions, and calls for tuition-free University for all.

“It is great that Joe Biden is now the support to a position in the Democratic platform four years ago,” Sanders, ” the team said in a statement. “Now, we must go much further. We are all public universities, colleges and vocational schools tuition-free for all, like our high schools.”


In the same Twitter thread, Biden announced that he is also in support of Warren insolvency plan, whose objective is the simplification of the bankruptcy procedure.

“Some of the people in the country understand how to the broke working families hurts more than Elizabeth Warren,” Biden said. “Today, I am full of approval and acceptance of your bankruptcy plan, you, as a” fixing Our bankruptcy System, to give people a Second Chance.'”

Warren, in a Medium post earlier this year, said her plan would “make it easier for people overwhelmed by debt to get relief through bankruptcy,” “expand the rights of the people, of taking care of themselves and their children while they are in the bankruptcy process,” the end of the “absurd rules that it is almost impossible to discharge student loan debt in bankruptcy”and “even more people protect their homes and cars in bankruptcy so that you can start from a solid basis, if you begin to pick up the pieces and rebuild your financial life.”


To put while on Sunday, the debate, after Sanders discussed an end to all fracking, Biden responded with the words, “No new fracking.”

It was unclear initially whether this is a call for an outright ban on the practice was to go forward, but Biden’s campaign said later that it was a repetition of his previously stated position against new oil and gas drilling on federal Land.



Biden has taken a more liberal attitude towards illegal immigration in the last few weeks, saying that if he becomes President, he will impose a 100-day freeze on the deportation. He also said that people are deported in the US illegally, unless you commit a crime on American soil, even if you have a criminal record in another country.

This goes further than the policy advertises Biden, campaign, website, the calls simply the end of “prolonged detention” as people expect from court proceedings.
