The White House is bringing all hands on deck in the push to increase ObamaCare enrollment, and that includes a visit from pop singer Lance Bass.
However, the former ‘N Sync band member tweeted "HealthCare.org." rather than "Healthcare.gov" during his White House visit. Bass has since deleted the tweet.
Speaker John Boehner's (R-Ohio) press secretary Brendan Buck jabbed Bass for plugging the wrong website.
When asked about Bass' flap at Wednesday's White House press briefing, Carney focused on the administration's push to enroll young adults ahead of the March 31 deadline.
"Sometimes that means using nontraditional means to reach folks because they don't all, you know, get their news or their information from the same sources that we do," he said.
An administration report released Tuesday said 18 to 34 year-olds made up 27 percent of signups, below a previous target of 40 percent. Young people tend to have lower health costs, so their enrollment is considered important for the law's success.
In another outreach effort, President Obama appeared on the comedy interview show "Between Two Ferns" in an online video released Tuesday. The White House said the video became the number one driver of traffic to HealthCare.gov.
