Biden to talk healthcare on 'The View'

(CNN) - Adding a second nationally televised appearance to his schedule, Vice President Joe Biden will stop by "The View" next week, his office said Tuesday.

Biden will discuss the Affordable Care Act with the ladies of the ABC daytime show on February 25, the morning after he appears as the opening guest for Seth Meyers' debut as "Late Night" host.

Biden's appearance comes as the weeks wind down to the March 31 open enrollment deadline for Americans to sign up for insurance plans under President Barack Obama's healthcare law.

This will be Biden's fourth time appearing on "The View." He was the first sitting vice president to appear on the show.

The vice president is considering launching his own bid for the White House in 2016, telling CNN he plans to make a decision on the race sometime next year.

CNN's Dana Davidsen and CNN White House Producer Kevin Liptak contributed to this report.

    Go get 'em Joe. What a man of courage. Maybe you can discuss hair plugs and PMS with that assembly of Mensa candidates if time permits. God knows there will be plenty of greenhouse gas produced from this intellectual summit. Oh, Mr. Vice President, just one more important question, "What's your sign?"

    Who will they have on after him to correct all of Biden's misstatements, lies and deceit? Probably nobody. Just more propaganda by the left and their allies in Hollywood.

    ACA is working with full swing. Sign-ups are way high. Govt. healthcare is cheap too.

  7. The Democrat Solution - Pray You Will Not Be Collateral Damage of Their FAILED Policies

    Is he going to lie about the millions that have signed up? Many of the newspapers have already given these clowns pinnochios for their lies. They were counting millions of people resigning for their Medicaid coverage as new Obamacare enrollees. Are they deducting the millions of people that Obamacare forced cancellations on? Those people were forced at gun point to enroll. And then there is the 10-25% that never paid for what they signed up for and got cancelled. Of course, NONE of this will be discussed by the VP and his sycophants on the View.

    Look at the rampant jealously from the right!
    You guys just wish you had a Joe Biden so you would have somebody... anybody, to run for President on your worthless and dying ticket. Our bench beats out your first stringers and you hate it.
    WAH!
    C'mon... let's hear some more Wahs...

    "And then there is the 10-25% that never paid for what they signed up for and got cancelled. "
    -------------
    So you are saying that before ACA, you could sign up for insurance, NOT pay for it and NOT get cancelled?
    Do these conservatives bloviators even read what they write?

    In another year, all you nay-sayers will be claiming that you knew the Healthcare would do all right. Besides, you'll be onto something else to rant about anyway.

    It is only cheap for the "gimme dats." The cost for the rest of us has gone up, to pay for them. That is the way socialism works. The democratic party might as well change their name. Their platform almost perfectly matches the socialist party's.

    The affordable care act is 336,000 incomprehensible words. Declaration of independence, the articles of confederation, and the constitution and none of them are more than 4,500 words! Biden is too obtuse to know this.

    ACA was NEVER designed to work, it's a step to government insurance, one size fits all! UNITED HEALTHCARE already dropped over 1000 doctors from their list, only problem they have not told the doctors or insured who is dropped.
