As the new enrollment period began on Wednesday, Barack Obama urged Americans to sign up for Obamacare and “get covered for 2018.” He released a statement on Twitter followed by a video.
Obama states in the video:
“You can shop for a health insurance plan that’s right for you and your family. It only takes a few minutes and the vast majority of people qualify for financial assistance.”
Obama then touted:
“8 in 10 people can find plans for $75 or less. That’s cheaper than a lot of cellphone plans. And thanks to the Affordable Care Act, insurance companies can no longer charge you more just for being a woman or for having a pre-existing condition.”

Open enrollment for ObamaCare begins Wednesday. The enrollment period is only half as long as it was during the Obama administration, ending Dec. 15, as part of Trump reducing the budget to promote Obamacare. Trump often refers to Obamacare as a “failure” to America after premiums have skyrocketed for millions.
Obama’s video follows an ad that came out on behalf of Trump Tuesday where he slams Democrats for obstructing efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare. He has vowed to let it implode as a result of their obstruction.
Trump’s ad says:
<strong>”President Trump will fix it. He wants what’s best for the American people. Top quality health care you can afford. Tell Washington Democrats and the obstructionists: work with our president.”
