After the event ended, a crowd surrounded Obama as Biden appeared to wander around looking for someone or something to do. The Republican National Committee research team tweeted the video and the caption “Literally no one wants to talk to Joe Biden”.

The content of Obama’s speech focused on the controversial passage of the Affordable Care Act, dubbed “Obamacare.”
“So when President Biden said he was not only going to celebrate the ACA but also announce actions that would make it even better, I had to introduce myself,” Obama said.
“Members of Congress voted bravely, including some who knew their vote would likely cost them their seat,” Obama boasted. “And the night we had the ACA – I’ve said this before – that was a highlight of my time here, because it reminded me and reminded us of what is possible.”
Obama has also encouraged the current Democratic White House, which has been marred by defeats: since Biden took office, he has failed to pass the “Build Back Better” program, the cancellation of student loans, the destruction of the integrity of elections and the packaging of the Supreme Court. .
