As Joe Biden and Kamala Harris flounder in the polls
Source: Daily Mail
Barack Obama will make his first trip back to the White House since leaving in 2017 to celebrate his 2010 Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare.
The 44th President of the United States is returning to his old address Tuesday, and will participate in a series of events to celebrate the act, which he signed into law in March 2010. President Biden – Obama’s vice president – as well as incumbent VP Kamala Harris will join him.
A White House official said Sunday that Obama will be joining President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris to ‘deliver remarks celebrating the success of the Affordable Care Act and Medicaid in extending affordable health insurance to millions of Americans.’
Biden and Harris will likely also be hoping that Obama will sprinkle some stardust on their flagging approval ratings. Their historic predecessor – America’s first black president – remains hugely popular within his party, and appears markedly-more energetic than 79 year-old Biden, who is on track for a midterms wipeout.
Tuesday’s event is part of Biden’s effort to turn his focus to pocketbook issues that directly affect American households. While job growth has been steady since he took office, inflation is at its worst level in a generation.
The White House said Biden ‘will take additional action to further strengthen the ACA and save families hundreds of dollars a month on their health care.’
Health Secretary Xavier Becerra and other members of Biden´s Cabinet will attend Tuesday’s event.
