Joe Biden claimed Monday that former President Barack Obama had “no time to explain the Affordable Care Act” because of the volume of problems he encountered in his presidency.
The former vice president’s comments were off the cuff, but they still belied the fact that Obama campaigned for re-election in 2012 on his signature health care law, also known as Obamacare, and held countless town halls and speeches about it before and after its passage in 2010. Those remarks included constant promises that no one would lose their preferred doctor or insurance under the law.
The article goes on to state the following:
Biden was one of 10 Democratic presidential candidates scheduled to appear at the Poor People’s Campaign’s presidential forum in Washington, where he took a question from MSNBC host Joy Reid about how he would accomplish his legislative goals. Even if Sen. Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) loses his position as majority leader in 2020, Biden as president would still likely face Republicans capable of filibustering ambitious liberal laws in the Senate.
Biden said legislative compromise was important but it also was important to beat Republicans at the ballot box if they wouldn’t along with Democratic ideas.
“Remember with the Affordable Care Act, because everything landed on President Obama’s desk but locusts at the time, he had no time to explain the Affordable Care Act,” Biden added.

Twitter users responded:
What? He did explain it. You can keep your doctor and plan and save $2500 per family. Three f’n lies.
Don’t you remember, Joe?
We do. https://t.co/GhBQqIjfgv

He did too have time! It is easy to explain the “crap” bill it was. It was so crappy, @SpeakerPelosi didn’t even take time to read it!

You can’t explain what you don’t understand. Like … how could it be that I don’t have my doctor any longer? That I lost insurance ’cause it went from ~$360/mon to ~$1260/mon???

The real reason Obama didn’t have the time is because he spent all that time lying about what was in the bill. Of course, any honesty would have assured its failure to pass. https://t.co/j6JUNJHZ4a
