(Newser) – Joe Biden is ramping up his feud with rival presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren in a new post that attacks her as having an "angry unyielding viewpoint" on health care, the AP reports. Tuesday's post on Medium comes in response to Warren's swipe last week that Biden is "running in the wrong presidential primary" and "repeating Republican talking points" with his criticism of her "Medicare for All" plan. Warren released new details of her plan last week and immediately faced veiled jabs from her opponents and sharp questions from reporters.
