During today's White House Youth Summit, President Obama called on young people to do whatever they can to promote his signature health care law — including plying their customers with cheap booze.

"If you are a bartender, have a happy hour," Obama said as the crowd laughed. "And also probably get health insurance because a lot of people don't have it."

Obama also encouraged young people who are student body presidents or workers at nonprofit organizations to help people get enrolled.

"If you've got a radio show, spread the word on air," Obama added.

Obama called on young people's sense of patriotism to join the cause.

"[The] bottom line is that I'm going to need you, the country needs you," Obama said, reminding them that their friends and peers might not know the benefits of Obamacare.
