Fox Family Edge: Obamas Meet With Moms to Discuss Healthcare

Young people are key to the new law's health care exchanges, and the White House figures who better to get on the "young invincibles" case, than their moms?
President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama are targeting moms in their latest push on the Affordable Care Act. Young people are key to the new law's health care exchanges, and the White House figures who better to get on the "young invincibles" case, than their moms?

The Obamas met Wednesday in the Oval Office with a group of mothers. Several of their visitors are heading outreach efforts designed to let friends, neighbors, and kids take advantage of their new health insurance options.

"This isn't about politics, it's about making sure every family has the peace of mind to know that if a child gets sick or someone loses a job or is someone has an illness that requires hundreds of thousands of dollars in coverage, that they're going to have the safety net that they need to make sure that they don't lose their home. That they aren't spending the rest of their life paying off medical fees," the First Lady said. If fewer young people than expected enroll, then premiums might rise to cover the shortfall.
