Vice President Biden spoke to Democratic members of the House of Representatives.  He was upbeat and feisty, as Emma Dumain of Roll Call  reports, telling his audience that:

“For the first time in my career … on every major issue, the American people agree with the Democratic Party.” 

Biden then ticked off:

… the areas where polling shows that agreement: reproductive issues, early childhood education, an immigration overhaul, background checks for gun users and unemployment insurance.

ObamaCare having been downgraded, in the Biden universe, from a “big ******* deal” to, presumably, a minor issue.

Uh huh.
