3 things I will do if I win:

Icon: A doctor wearing a head mirror and with a medical cross on their chest holds a sheet of paper with a medical cross and writing. 1.  Biden knows that Americans need quality health care, now more than ever–especially the one in four Americans with disabilities. As Vice President, he worked to pass the Affordable Care Act, protecting 100 million Americans with pre-existing conditions and ending annual and lifetime caps.

Icon: one person wielding a pick-axe with another people seated at a desk with a computer. Label: Jobs2. Joe Biden is running to rebuild a stronger, more inclusive middle class, where everyone gets a fair return on their work and an equal shot to get US ahead, including Americans with disabilities. He knows how to rebuild a battered economy: as Vice President, he administered the 2009 Recovery Act.

Icon: person in wheelchair holding hands with person in dress holding hands with a person in pants and the label Civil Rights beneath3. Joe Biden knows American history isn’t a fairytale. We’ve never lived up to our founding promise of equality for all – but we’ve never quit trying. Throughout his career, Biden has fought for the rights and opportunities of people with disabilities – working to pass the Rehabilitation Act.
