Pres. Obama works to get young people behind ACA

WASHINGTON, D.C. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - President Obama is working to get young people signing up for the Affordable Care Act.

On Wednesday, the President continued his push, saying the youth are the key to the law's success.

He says it would create large pools of younger and healthier participants.

Their premiums would then offset the cost of providing care for older policy holders.

The White House says they are trying to cast the health care law in a positive light after the first two months of enrollment experienced technical problems.
