It was just a mind blowing moment. I’ve been doing this for so many years to be in his office, do an impression of him for him.
[Iman Crosson (Impersonating Barack Obama)]
Now look I am happy to be here in the Oval Office either I can get to work or you can. You can take a lunch break and I can take an hour. To fill in for you. But listen I am just happy to be here and I am happy to shake your hand.
You’re going to have to get some grey hair though.
I used to look like you.

Today was incredible. The President took time to come and meet with myself and some other digital influencers I suppose. And really kind of find out our opinions on healthcare, the issues that are important to us, and how we reach out to our communities.
For the next five weeks, get as many people signed up as possible. So we’ve got a short term agenda. And any of you guys can do any suggestion you have, just let us know.
I was thinking, even while I was talking with the President, I am like, oh, my gosh my friend and I we’ve talked about how he doesn’t have insurance and like this is the easiest solution ever. All you have to do is go online and do it.
As a YouTuber I am basically self-employed, meaning that I am a small business owner and my small business is entertainment. So because of that, I don’t have insurance coming from anywhere. I am 27. I don’t qualify to be on my parents insurance. So I went to healthcare.gov which redirected me to Covered California and then I chose the plan that fit, that’s for me.

I myself up until now I had never had health insurance and I’ve been in situations where I’ve dislocated my shoulder twice and ER visits and hospital visits, all on my own dime, dimes that I didn’t actually have. So when you’re not covered and something happens, you can actually place yourself in a position to be a lot of debt.
At the end of the enrollment process, it says like tweet to tell a friend, and I thought about all the friends I have, who don’t have insurance. So I tweeted, hey I got covered at Covered California. And then Covered California contacted me and I ended up posting a live stream for them at the YouTube space, which was awesome because it kind of gave me a chance to reach out through YouTube to my community. I want them all to have health insurance. I like them very much. I’d like them to live long, happy, healthy lives.
I just wanted to get involved and have people begin to talk about the Affordable Care Act and what it is and how do you sign up. And so the easiest way to do that was to do a parody song saying, sign up like it’s hot because once you go to the website you can read for yourself and you can ask questions or you can read the fact and understand exactly what’s going on. So that’s why I made that video.
My audience is a really young audience which is really cool because I think me talking about the things that are important to me like healthcare, gets’ them into the mindset of okay, well this isn’t something that adults have to worry about, it’s something that effects everybody.
With the upcoming deadline of March 31 approaching quickly, I think young peoples as much as we’re integrated into social media, we can use those tools to get that word out.
So it’s a complicated time for us to get information out and this group really can’t help to advice us in terms of how do we reach people?

And I think it’s important to spread the word because we’re in a position to have something for us in terms of healthcare that we’ve never had before, this country has never had before. And you don’t want to get past that March 31, deadline and have to wait until it reopens again, because you never know what’s going to happen in that window. So — spread the word, just get covered, prepare for it ahead of time.
