Vice President Joe Biden tried to convince a young Canadian woman to sign up for Obamacare:

"Vice President Biden moving in close to sell the Affordable Care Act to a young woman outside Butterfield's Pancake House in Scottsdale," says the local reporter.

 Biden told the young Canadian: "We gotta make sure everybody young person signs up for health care. It's affordable. You can get subsidies to do it. And it's in your interest. And if you don't even want to do it for yourself. do it for your parents, give 'em peace of mind."

The local reporter though took the time to find out a little bit about the woman the vice president pitched. "Turns out that woman is not even a U.S. resident. She's visiting from Canada," says the reporter.

"I just didn't know if I should just say, I'm sorry--Canadian, don't know if I can help you out," says the Canadian woman. "He's for it, I'm for it. And I hope it works out here."

The vice president was visiting Scottsdale, Arizona.
