ALLENTOWN, Pa. -

Tuesday's significant step in the roll-out of the Affordable Care Act was marked with cake and balloons in Allentown.

The Lehigh Valley chapter of the group "Organizing for Action" -- a group started to support the president's agenda -- blew out candles on a birthday cake and sang happy birthday to Obamacare.

Members of the group handed out pamphlets with information on the new law to passersby at 7th and Hamilton streets. They encouraged everyone to check out the federal government's health care website.
