First lady Michelle Obama joins president’s push on health care
The Grio

First lady Michelle Obama is suggesting a different kind of Christmas present for moms to give this year — a family discussion on health insurance.

The first lady joked it could be a new holiday tradition as the president enlisted his popular wife to help get young Americans to sign up for coverage. The couple spoke to moms in the Oval Office Wednesday, just five days before a Dec. 23 deadline for consumers to select a plan if they want coverage at the beginning of the new year.
