Fallon: Young people. Yea, yea, yea, yea. I would never do both of those things just last summer. No, no, no.

And as a mother, and I know there are a lot of moms out there who worry that their kids are going to, you know, have a a terrible accident, get a bad diagnosis and they won’t have health care. And before they couldn’t get it because they couldn’t afford it. And now young people can get insurance for as little as $50 a month, less than the cost of gym shoes. And, you know, for the moms and dads who are out there worried about their kids, we want you to encourage your kids to sign up for that peace of mind that we all look for.
