If you wanted to spend your lunch hour at The Coupe in Washington D.C. today (Jan. 10), chances are there was a bit of a wait. Not because of an influx of professionals flocking for a tasty meal, but because the President of the United States was lunching with five young professionals from the D.C. area.

In an effort to call attention to the lack of young people registering for healthcare, Obama sat with five professionals who are working to promote the initiative. Sitting next to Tommy were four other young professionals who are advocates of the healthcare reform. They included executive director of the youth division of the Center for American Progress John Podesta, Young Invincibles representative Jasmine Hicks, Maryland small-business owner David Dimock and Andres Cruz, who assists D.C. residents in enrollment.
