Drunk texting is so passé when you can now drunk signup for Obamacare.
A desperate President Obama wants young people to host Obamacare happy hours to tout the benefits of his signature law and get their friends and families to enroll over drinks.
Obama paid a visit to the 160 youth leaders from around the country that attended the White House Youth Summit Wednesday and begged for their help in “spreading the word about the Affordable Care Act and organizing to get people enrolled in their respective communities,” according to the White House.
Though some of the “country’s finest national and local leaders aged 18-35” aren’t even old enough to drink, Obama suggested that bartenders host happy hours.
“If you’re a bartender, have a happy hour,” he said with a straight face even though the attendees laughed.
“And also probably get health insurance because a lot of bartenders don’t have it,” the salesman-in-chief added.
According to the White House, Obama told the millennials he so desperately needs in order for Obamacare to succeed:
So I’m going to need you all to spread the word about how the Affordable Care Act really works, what its benefits are, what its protections are and, most importantly, how people can sign up. I know people call this law Obamacare. And that’s okay — because I do care. I care about you. I care about families. I care about Americans.
But no matter how much I care, the truth is, is that for your friends and your family, the most important source of information is not going to be me, it’s going to be you. They are going to trust you. If you’re taking them on a website, walking them through it saying, look at the price you’re able to get, look at the benefits you’re able to get. That’s what’s going to be making a difference.
No word from the White House on how drinking fits in with Michelle Obama’s healthy eating habits agenda.
