Democratic Debate: Bloomberg says he’s ‘fan’ of Obamacare – but Biden suggests a fact chec

Michael Bloomberg gave glimpses Wednesday into his stance on health care, in between pointed questions about his record on policing practices and treatment of his female employees.

In his first appearance on the Democratic debate stage, Bloomberg disputed rival Joe Biden's charge that he'd previously called the Affordable Care Act a disgrace. The Democratic presidential hopeful described himself as "a fan'' of the initiative.

"I was in favor of it,'' Bloomberg said, adding that he believed that it didn't go as far as it needed to and should be expanded, not swept aside.

Bloomberg said the policy should include "another public option,'' as well as rules that would cap charges. "We shouldn’t just walk away and start something that is totally new,'' he said.

But Biden continued to challenge Bloomberg's claim that the former New York City mayor had always supported the Obama administration's signature domestic achievement.

"The mayor said when we passed it . . . it was a disgrace,'' Biden said. "Look it up. Check it out.’’
