Athletes actors students even librarians the Obama administration is trying to enlist all of them in an effort to sell.
The president's Health Care Reform law to a skeptical public.
Here's chief national correspondent Jim Angle.
The administration -- launched a full court press seeking help from any and every one to promote the law.
Think they're between a rock and a hard place here that time is very short.
And -- are trying to take the health care law obamacare mainstream by any means possible.
This weekend the American Library Association agreed to help the administration inform people about their options.
Libraries are where everyone goes to ask questions and find answers as we know that libraries.
Have become the hub in many communities.
For people who need information about the Affordable Care Act yeah.
The administration also tried to get sports leagues -- the NFL and Major League Baseball to join the enrollment campaign but that went nowhere.
One Republican analyst says sports leagues are better off focusing on team loyalties rather than political loyalties especially with the new Lauren Manning widely unpopular.
This is a highly charged political subject.
And I think everybody needs to stay in there -- And the NFL agreed that -- was a good idea if in fact the NFL made clear they would not be promoting health care law saying in a statement quote.
We currently have no plans to engage in this area and have had no substantive contact with the administration about the law's implementation.
Major League Baseball and the National Hockey -- -- the White House were scheduled meetings and then cancel them.
The Obama administration is also trying to use its formidable social media skills and spending a million dollars in Los Angeles alone to get young people to try to sign of their friends and family.
Here using social media this I say get out and vote for the president they can do that without costing them a lot of money.
But in this particular case you're saying hey come out sign up for health insurance.
And by the -- -- that cost you a hundred dollars a month it's a different story altogether.
The rules of the -- million young people have to spend a lot more insurance than they do now and if they don't sign up the insured population will be older and sicker.
And obamacare will be much more expensive.
-- Jim thank you.
