However, in April 2022 he returned to the White House for the first time to speak about legislation he had signed into office during his tenure.
Where is Barack Obama today?
On April 5, 2022, Obama returned to the White House for the first time since leaving office to celebrate the 12th anniversary of the signing of his health care bill.
“It’s good to be back in the White House,” Obama said via CBS News.
“It’s been a while. I confess I’ve heard that the current President has made some changes since I was last year. Apparently, Secret Service agents are now required to carry aviators. The naval mess has been replaced with a Baskin Robbins. And there is a cat is walking around, which I guarantee you, Beau, it’s funny, would have been very unfortunate. But coming back, even if I have to wear a tie, which I very rarely do these days, gives me an opportunity to visit some of the incredible people who serve this White House and who serve this country every day.”
He also discussed the new rule proposed by the Treasury Department to make the law more accessible to Americans.
“I intended to push through health care, even if it cost me re-election – which seemed like it for a while,” Obama joked.
“The reason we are here today is because President Biden, Vice President Harriseveryone who worked on this thing understood from the start that the ACA wasn’t perfect,” he continued.
“To get the law through, we had to make compromises. We didn’t get everything we wanted. That was no reason not to do it.”
If the new rule is passed, it won’t come into effect until January 2023, but it will reportedly help make healthcare more accessible and affordable.
