Obama: 'No Ferns. No Memes' in Final Plea Urging People to Sign up for Obamacare

Former President Obama on Monday took to Twitter to urge his followers to sign up for health insurance before the Saturday deadline. Obama mentioned how in the past he had made more light-hearted efforts in trying to boost enrollment into Obamacare but said this year he decided to play it straight. Enrollment in Obamacare plans is down by 11 percent compared to last year, according to numbers released by the Trump administration. In the first five weeks of this year's sign-up period, about 3.2 million people signed up for Obamacare plans, compared to the 3.6 million who had signed up by that point last year.  (Owen Daugherty, The Hill)
