MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC-TV) - With just days until the affordable health care act goes into effect, Memphis city leaders are offering President Obama their input on the situation.

Mayor AC Wharton said he has helped advise the White House on what the the city leaders are doing here in Memphis. He believes Memphis is a target of Obamacare because there is a large population of young people without health care.

Wharton also stated 'young people' think of themselves as invincible and thus do not believe they need insurance.

"To make the affordable health care act work, those young folks need to get in on the plan," continued Wharton.

Mayor Wharton did confirm new plans for Obamacare will be released in the next few days.
