Vice President Joe Biden admitted that the number of Obamacare enrollees will likely fall short by one or two million people.
"We may not get to seven million, we may get to five or six, but that's a hell of a start," Biden told folks in a Minneapolis cafe today. "I'm here to say thanks."
The Obama adminstration hoped that seven million people would enroll in Obamacare during the first open-enrollment period.
Biden also told the folks at the cafe that he's personally "been a significant consumer of healthcare," but, he added, "I'm not bragging about it."
Via the pool report:
Biden touched down at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport at 3:30 p.m. A few minutes later, he exited onto the tarmac wearing a navy scarf, navy suit and striped tie. He saluted an airman who stood at attention before he warmly greeted a staffer.
