WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is lunching with five young people to call attention to the need for young Americans to enroll for insurance through his health care law.
Obama traveled Friday afternoon to The Coupe, a restaurant in a Washington neighborhood that's popular among young people. He listened as the five advocates described their efforts to spread the word about new health care exchanges. Obama told the group he was proud of what they were doing.
The Obama administration needs millions of Americans, but especially young, healthier people, to enroll in the exchanges to keep prices low for everyone. More than two million overall signed up in the first half of the 6-month enrollment period, but there's concern that early problems with the website may have discouraged some younger people from enrolling.
