Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius took the opportunity Monday to celebrate Martin Luther King Day while pleading with Americans to sign up for Obamacare.

“Today, we honor the remarkable life of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his legacy of fighting for racial equality, human rights and economic justice,” she said in a Friday press release. “Dr. King memorably described inequality in health care as the ‘most shocking and inhumane’ form of injustice. These words continue to resonate, as there is nothing more essential to opportunity than good health.”

“Because of the Affordable Care Act, it’s a new day in health care that is bringing new security and opening new doors of opportunity,” Mrs. Sebelius continued. Across the nation, millions of Americans are signing up for quality, affordable health insurance through the new Health Insurance Marketplace.”

“As we celebrate the inspirational life of Dr. King, please join us in this historic effort by helping your friends, neighbors, and loved ones get covered through the Marketplace,” she concluded.
