Biden is scheduled to make comments on the Affordable Care Act and Medicaid at the White House Tuesday. Obama signed the Affordable Care Act 12 years ago when a hot microphone caught then-Vice President Biden to describe it as a “big f***ing deal”.

A White House official said Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris and Obama “will make remarks highlighting the success of the Affordable Care Act and Medicaid in expanding affordable health coverage to millions of Americans as part of the President’s agenda to reduce costs for American families.” to celebrate. “

“The President will take additional action to further strengthen the ACA and save families hundreds of dollars a month on their health care,” the official added.

Health Minister Xavier Becerra and other cabinet members will also attend the event.

ABC was the first to report to the Obama appearance.
Since leaving office, the former president has repeatedly touted the Affordable Care Act, which is proving increasingly popular in China GOP-led states who have not expanded Medicaid to low-income adults.
The spike in interest comes after the Biden administration and the Democrat-led Congress pumped more resources into the program, a dramatic change from the four years under the Trump administration that greatly reduced funding for marketing and registration support and reduced the registration period by half to six weeks.
The Trump administration made significant attempts to dismantle the health care law without success, including during the pandemic; the Supreme Court last year a challenge dismissed to the ACA of Republican-led states and the former Trump administration, leaving it intact. Trump said repeatedly during his tenure that he would propose an alternative, but never gave any significant details.
Obama’s appearance also comes as the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services launch advertising and publicity campaigns to spread the word about a new special registration period for low-income Americans who failed to register for the Affordable Care Act 2022.

The Biden administration has increased enrollment assistance and allocated more funding to navigation programs that help people make policy choices. The goal is to get more uninsured people into coverage and help those who lose Medicaid coverage to maintain health coverage after the public health emergency ends.

“We know this has been a difficult time for many people and want to make sure the door is always open for them to sign up for coverage,” Becerra said said CNN last month.
