First lady visits Miami to promote Obamacare

@LDixon_3

First lady Michelle Obama returned to Miami for the second time in two weeks, stopping at the Jessie Trice Community Health Center Wednesday to encourage people to enroll in an insurance plan under the Affordable Care Act.

With less than four weeks left to enroll by the March 31 deadline, the Obama administration’s outreach and enrollment efforts have kicked into high gear with President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and other high-profile White House officials fanning out across the country.

In Miami, Michelle Obama joked that she just happened to be in the neighborhood and then spoke about getting people — especially young people and minorities — enrolled.

“In the African-American community, unfortunately, one in five of us are not insured,” she said, “and the numbers are no better in the Hispanic community.’’
