"We have problems we have to solve now. What's the revolution going to do? Disrupt everything," former Vice President Joe Biden said when asked about Sen. Bernie Sanders' Medicare for All health care plan during the 11th Democratic debate on Sunday.

What they're saying: Biden said Sanders has not explained how he plans to pass and pay for his Medicare for All plan

"The senator talks about his Medicare for All, but he still hasn't told you how he's ever going to get it passed. He hasn't told you how, in fact, there's any possibility of that happening. He hasn't told you how much it's going to cost. He hasn't told you how it's going to apply. He hasn't told you that it doesn't kick in for four years even after it passes. If we want a revolution, let's act now."
— Former Vice President Joe Biden
  • Biden said he could pass his health care plan, which is an extension of the Affordable Care Act, "today."
  • "It will be a fundamental change, and it happens now," Biden said. "What people want is hope, and they need it now. Not four years from now."

Sanders, in response, questioned why U.S. workers have not seen significant increases in wages despite gains in productivity and why the U.S., the richest country in the world by GDP, does not provide health care for all people.

  • "Why do we give tax breaks to millionaires when a half a million people are homeless today?" Sanders asked. "It comes down to something we don't talk about: the power structure in America. Who has the power? I'll tell you who has the power. The millionaires who contribute money to political campaigns, who control the legislative agenda. Those people have the power."

A panel appointed by Congress to review security measures at the Capitol is recommending several changes, including mobile fencing and a bigger Capitol police force, to safeguard the area after a riotous mob breached the building on Jan. 6.

Why it matters: Law enforcement officials have warned there could be new plots to attack the area and target lawmakers, including during a speech President Biden is expected to give to a joint session of Congress.

CDC says fully vaccinated people can take fewer precautions

People who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 can take fewer precautions in certain situations, including socializing indoors without masks when in the company of low-risk or other vaccinated individuals, according to guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released Monday.

Why it matters: Per the report, there's early evidence that suggests vaccinated people are less likely to have asymptomatic infection and are potentially less likely to transmit the virus to other people. At the time of its publication, the CDC said the guidance would apply to about 10% of Americans.
