President Joe Biden and former President Barack Obama collaborated on a video to endorse the Affordable Care Act.

The video was launched on Friday, which marks the last day of open enrollment. This comes at a time when former President Donald Trump, during his own White House campaign, has posed fresh challenges to the law.

During a recent undisclosed visit to the White House, Obama and Biden were filmed together in a short video that lasted about 30 seconds. At the start of the video, Biden can be seen reading a text message inquiring if Obamacare is “still a thing.”

In response, Obama says, “Yes! Obamacare, the Affordable Care Act, Bidencare — whatever you call it — yes it is still a thing. The other side’s been trying to repeal it every year since its existence, but we’ll keep fighting to protect it.”

The enrollment period for plans through the Affordable Care Act Marketplace ended on Friday, with over seven million people having already registered for coverage. In 2022, Obama visited the White House to endorse the accomplishments of his landmark healthcare legislation.
