Obama and Pelosi appear in a video with Biden in an attempt to bolster the president's reelection bid

Former President Barack Obama appeared in a video touting the Affordable Care Act in an attempt to bolster President Joe Biden's 2024 election bid, the Washington Post reported. The pair were joined by former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who was charged with showing solidarity for the awful legislation.

The video message was released Saturday to mark the 14th anniversary of the ACA. It was an attempt to motivate voters to turn out against former President Donald Trump because of his promise to dismantle the legislation.

It included the usual scaremongering about people losing their coverage if they don't vote for Democrats. Biden also falsely claimed that Trump told people to "inject themselves with bleach" during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Same Playbook

Because Biden is such a terrible president, Democrats are dusting off their old playbook in hopes of wringing out another victory. Biden will also appear at a fundraiser with Obama and former President Bill Clinton at Radio City Music Hall in New York City on Thursday.

Obama spoke as if to remind voters of the good old days when he was running the show, and Biden was just the vice president. "Like any freedom, we can’t take this one for granted," Obama said.

"Right now, the presumptive nominee for the Republican Party for president says he still wants to repeal the entirety of the ACA. That would mean kicking millions of young people off their parents’ health insurance, raising costs at a time when a lot of folks are just starting out," Obama claimed.

"We need to keep building on the ACA — expanding coverage and lowering costs for more people," Obama said. The attack targeted Trump, who officially became the GOP nominee earlier this month.

Similarly, Biden told voters that Trump would repeal the bloated legislation that has been nothing but trouble for Americans. He tried to scare people into believing that a Trump victory in November would mean the end of their healthcare.

The Truth About Obamacare

Despite the messaging, ObamaCare has been a disaster for the American healthcare system. It's so bad that even diehard supporter Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) penned a bipartisan letter criticizing one aspect, Fox News reported.

Warren joined Senate Republicans in a letter to the Health and Human Services Department inspector general complaining about "sky-high prescription drug costs and excessive corporate profits." They rightly identified that the ACA has rigged the reimbursement system.

Of course, all of this seems to have escaped Pelosi's notice. Following news that a "record-shattering 21.3 million Americans" signed up for ACA health coverage, the California Democrat took a victory lap earlier this year.

"While the former president has declared that 'Obamacare sucks' and sets his sights on another effort to repeal it, the American people know that the Affordable Care Act cures.  President Biden and Democrats in Congress will always relentlessly defend the ACA from extreme MAGA attacks – and ensure that the ACA continues to stand as a pillar of families' health, security, and freedom for generations to come," Pelosi said in a statement.

The video the three released was nothing more than an attempt to prop up a failing reelection campaign. Biden was hoping to ride Obama's popularity just as he did in 2020, but even Obama can't save him now.
