Obama asked the singers to speak out about the plan
President Barrack Obama has enlisted the help of major celebrities to spread the word of his health care plan. Obama stopped by The White House for a private meeting Monday (July 22nd) with celebrities, including Jennifer Hudson and representatives for Bon Jovi and Alicia Keys, to discuss how the artists plan to help spread the word to young Americans about the health insurance marketplaces opening October 1st.
The White House tells The Associated Press that Obama told the artists they could help reach young uninsured Americans by speaking out in support of his signature law to help insurers offset costs for older, sicker customers. This marketing ploy is vital in making the law a success which has long been criticized by millions who are against the conformity of America.
Actress Amy Poehler and actors Michael Cera and Kal Penn were also in attendance, along with representatives for Oprah Winfrey, YouTube and Funny Or Die.
