Vice President Joe Biden tried to pitch Obamacare to a Canadian tourist during a surprise stop at an Arizona restaurant on Friday.

The video by news station KTVK showed Mr. Biden touching the woman’s arm as he sits next to her on a bench outside the Scottsdale restaurant, Mediaite.com reported.

“Everybody young signs up for healthcare. It’s affordable, you can get subsidies to do it. It’s in your interest, and if you don’t even want to do it for yourself, do it for your parents, give them piece of mind,” he told her.

The woman, known as Jackie, told the station that she didn’t know what to say to the vice president, but added, “he’s for it (Obamacare), I’m for it, I hope it works out here.”
