Magic Johnson Urges Young People to Sign Up for Obamacare

Give us what little money you have left, please!


It figures that one of the nation's most prominent basketball fans—President Obama—would get help for his new health care law from one of history's greatest basketball players.

Magic Johnson has cut a video urging people—presumably young, athletic people—to sign up for one of the new health care exchanges.

"You can go online to find and compare options, determine if you qualify for lower costs, and enroll in the plan that's right for you," Johnson says in a post on the White House blog.

The former Michigan State and Los Angeles Lakers star has also played a role in health care history. In 1991, Johnson announced he had the HIV virus, but has gone on to a successful business career.
