Amid budget cuts in the advertising budget for the Affordable Care Act, commonly referred to as Obamacare, former President Barack Obama is using social media to encourage people to sign up for health insurance.

According to CNBC, health insurance sign-ups are lower this year because of changes enacted by President Donald Trump and Congress. The budget for advertising was cut by 90 percent to $10 million last year.

“No jump shots. No ferns. No memes. Not this time. I’m going to give it to you straight: If you need health insurance for 2019, the deadline to get covered is December 15. Go to  today and pass this on — you just might save a life,” Obama wrote on his Twitter page on Monday.

Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sander, and future House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi have also tried to get people health coverage, which is down by 11 percent this year on

Open enrollment runs from Nov. 1 through Dec. 15 in most states and those who don’t sign up won’t be able to sign up for an ACA plan until fall of 2019.
