In the first presidential debate, the US President also held out the repeal of Obamacare's individual mandate to have health insurance as significant progress, while ignoring questions about his lack of a comprehensive plan.

The Democratic presidential nominee wants to expand Obama's law to provide more generous coverage to a greater number of people and add a “Medicare-like public option” that would compete with private insurers and be available to working-age Americans.

Biden sees his approach as the next step toward universal coverage and one he could get through Congress.

The Democratic presidential nominee also has sought to turn the current Supreme Court vacancy into a healthcare matter, noting that the late liberal Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a key vote in upholding the 2010 health care law.
