LeBron puts on full-court press for Obamacare

SHARE LeBron puts on full-court press for Obamacare

The full-court press is on to get people to sign up for Obamacare by the end of March, and now LeBron James has joined the effort.

A new public service announcement was released Friday with the basketball star pushing the importance of insurance.

“I know how important it is to take care of yourself, your friends, and your family,” James says. “That’s why I want to tell you you about the health insurance marketplace at HealthCare.gov. “

This is just one effort in a number to try to push people to sign up. Some celebrity moms have taken part in a public service announcement, while President Barack Obama got both good and bad press off his Funny Or Die bit. He also did an interview with WebMD to answer questions about Obamacare.
