Vice President Joe Biden met with a group of Minneapolis women Wednesday afternoon at a Minneapolis coffee shop, to thank them for their support of the Affordable Care Act, according to the Star Tribune.
Biden arrived at Moose & Sadie's cafe shortly after 4 p.m. He sat and talked with four women, all of whom have either benefited from the Affordable Care Act or are helping others get signed up.
"Look, thank you for what you're doing," he told them.
He acknowledged the goal to sign up seven million people for Obamacare by the March 31 deadline will probably not happen. "We may not get to seven million, we may get to five or six, but that's a hell of a start," he said, according to the Associated Press.
After the brief visit, Biden appeared at a fundraiser at the Bachelor Farmer restaurant downtown. The event benefited the Democratic National Committee, with donations topping out at $32,000, the Star Tribune reported.
This is the second time this month that Biden has visited Minnesota. He was among the dignitaries who attended a Feb. 8 memorial service for Joan Mondale, wife of former Vice President Walter Mondale.
