“We’re just getting started” with Obamacare, V.P. Joe Biden declared in the White House’s weekly address on Saturday:

 

“Everyone is beginning to realize what millions of you already know -- the Affordable Care Act is working. And we're just getting started. Because there are millions more of you who can get quality, affordable health care if you sign up before February 15th of this year. That’s now through February 15th.”

Biden’s declaration comes even as polls show voters want Obamacare gone and a new crop of Republicans enter Congress vowing to repeal and replace it.

 

Biden also reassured Americans they don’t have to grapple with Healthcare.gov to get Obamacare insurance. Operators are standing by to sell Obamacare in 150 difference languages, and even local libraries and community health centers will be hawking health plans:

“If you don't want to go to HealthCare.gov and you want to talk to somebody on the phone instead, you can call, I'm going to give you the number now, you can call 1-800-318-2596. From this moment on, you can call any time of the day, any day of the week. Phone lines are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. And for folks listening today whose family and friends may not speak English: let them know that there are translators available in over 150 languages to guide them through the process.

“And if you're not comfortable going online or speaking on the phone, and you want to sit down with an individual to help you through this, you can find out where to go as well. Because in every community, at local libraries or community health centers, people are there to help. All you have to do is go on HealthCare.gov, type in where you live, and you can find out exactly where to go to sit down with a person who will help you walk through the process.”
