First Lady Michelle Obama: "I Need You to See This"

Yesterday, First Lady Michelle Obama sent the message below to the White House email list, urging Americans across the country to visit and get covered.

As a mom, I know life gets busy. Most folks already have way too much on their plates -- they shouldn't have to worry about health care coverage, too.

We all deserve the security that comes from having health coverage that's there for us -- that we can count on when we need it most.

If you still don't have health insurance, you can go to, compare your options, and pick a plan that fits your needs and your budget.

And if you're already covered, make sure the people you love are covered, too.

Millions of moms, dads, and Americans across the country have already picked out affordable plans that work for them. They've done this because they know that life throws you plenty of curveballs. That's what getting covered is all about: being ready for whatever comes your way.

This isn't about politics -- it's about peace of mind for you and for your family.

So if you still need health insurance, go to and select a plan.

And if you're already covered, I need your help: Forward this message to a friend or loved one who needs to see it and make sure they've signed up for health insurance, too.

Our health -- and the health of our families -- depends on it.
