Just the News: Former President Barack Obama on Tuesday referred to President Joe Biden as “vice president” when he took the podium at a 12th anniversary Affordable Care Act event at the White House on Tuesday.
When the audience laughed, Obama responded, saying, “That was a joke, that was all setup.”
Obama then said, “my president, Joe Biden.”
Obama also said he “intended to get health care passed even if it costed me re-election, which for a while, looked like it might.”
Biden announced a change to the 2010 law more commonly known as Obamacare and formally known as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Obama’s signature, government-backed measure was a major overhaul to the U.S. health care system to make medical insurance more affordable and accessible to Americans with taxpayer-subsidized medical plans through a health insurance marketplace.
When Biden took the stage, he told the audience, “I’m Joe Biden and I’m Barack Obama’s vice president.” more
