It’s Funny or Die for Obamacare as HealthCare.gov enrollment deadline nears
San Francisco Business Times

President Barack Obama went on Hollywood star Zach Galifianakis’ “Between Two Ferns” show on Funny or Die Tuesday to trade a few barbs and talk more young adults into signing up for Obamacare.

The repartee was more awkward than funny, but Obama was happy to grin and bear it, because he needs to gin up enrollment at HealthCare.gov and the state insurance exchanges set up under the Affordable Care Act. A few hours after Obama’s viral video, we learned that enrollment was a little under the weather in February: Only 942,833 Americans chose a health plan through the exchanges in February, compared with 1.15 million in January, according to the Department of Health and Human Services.
