Ex-President Barack Obama is back in the news on Wednesday after he cut a video for the group Get America Covered, promoting open enrollment for ObamaCare plans.

The one-minute video touts the once-maligned HealthCare.gov, where consumers can sign up for 2018 coverage between Wednesday, November 1, and December 15.

A quick look at Get America Covered’s Twitter page shows the group has also enlisted ex-VP Joe Biden in its day-one outreach.

The Obama administration outreach comes as the Trump administration cuts back on enrollment efforts.

A recent report from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) found consumers shopping for Obamacare insurance will pay a lot more this year. The average Obamacare premium is up 37 percent from last year.

Repealing parts of Obamacare is still very much a priority for many in the GOP. Just this past weekend, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) proposed making repeal of the individual mandate a part of tax reform.
