Biden: The fight against cancer is the "one bipartisan issue"

Chuck Kennedy / Axios

Former Vice President Joe Biden and Dr. Jill Biden sat down with Axios' Mike Allen at an event on the future of cancer research in Philadelphia with the former veep declaring the fight against cancer the "one bipartisan issue out there," promising that "we'll get all that money" via government cooperation. He specifically cited Congress' rejection of President Trump's proposed budget cuts at the National Institutes of Health as an example.

The big thing: The Bidens agreed that information sharing between institutions is what will push cancer research forward the most over the next few years — with Joe declaring it "the single biggest thing" — and marked it as a centerpiece of their Biden Cancer Initiative, which stems from Biden's "moonshot" to end cancer while still in office.
