Presidents Biden and Obama are marking the 12th anniversary of the Affordale Care Act, and they're out to expand the law's footprint.

The last time President Barack Obama was in the White House was on Jan. 20, 2017, when he left to escort Donald Trump, who was bent on overturning “Obamacare,” to the Capitol to be inaugurated.

Obama is returning to the White House on Tuesday to savor his signature Affordable Care Act.
