Obama jokingly called Biden ‘Vice President’ when he returned to the White House
After Barack Obama left his post at the White House on Tuesday, he went on to his first public appearance at the House of Commons. As Joe Biden announced changes to a health plan that would allow 200,000 uninsured Americans to qualify for the new coverage, he took part in the celebration of the Affordable Care Act, Obamacare.
Many Democrats believe the visit will benefit Mr Biden’s even higher recognition of his former employer’s democratic base. Mr Biden has recently struggled to raise his awkward position, and there are serious concerns that apathy and frustration among Democratic voters could give Republicans an opening in this year’s midterm elections. To win the by-election, Democrats have a story, and they have to “say it,” Mr Obama says.
Meanwhile, in Capitol Hill, the Senate Judiciary Committee voted 11-11 yesterday on the appointment of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court. As a result, Ms Jackson’s appointment does not preclude her from going to the Senate; He already seems to have the support of 53 senators, with Republicans Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski and Mitt Romney breaking ranks in support of him.

The Border Security Caucus – after last week’s announcement that the White House would lift all Trump-era Govt restrictions on the border – was fully charged during the meeting.
Darrell Issa, a Republican from California who attended the meeting, said, “This is a tough meeting, and you should give him a lot of credit for choosing the toughest crowd and going in and listening to what they have to say.
“Nothing has really been resolved, except that he promised to provide a lot of information on the follow-up,” he said.
Texas Representative Brian Bobbin, co-chair of the meeting, said of the meeting: “We appreciate his courage in coming in, knowing that we are 100 percent opposed to him. But we were not satisfied with the answers he gave.
