They face the daunting task of helping to convince the nearly 200,000 uninsured residents of Philadelphia County that they can — and should — buy it now. The new exchange's success, the cornerstone of the Affordable Care Act, will hinge on whether it can meet the federal goal of 7 million enrollees, but also on whether it can sign up enough healthy younger people like these canvassers to make up for all the ailing older ones.
