Obamacare Propaganda

One has to wonder if President Obama and his cohorts in their absolute delusion, who didn't even read the healthcare bill before they voted to pass it, think that by simply passing and affirming Obamacare as law of the land, we will be a healthier nation and most of our medical problems will just go away. They think if you have national healthcare insurance, you will automatically be better off, even if you never use it.

But apparently Americans don't know enough about Obamacare and all the wonderfulness and happiness it will bring to our nation because the powers that be who pull the strings to make boondoggles like this actually happen, feel they need to spend nearly 700 million taxpayer dollars on publicity, marketing and advertising to get the word out.

Translation: Whenever the government, especially one run by Barack Hussein Obama, feels they need to spend money on publicity, marketing and advertising a program, look out for a pure propaganda campaign. But that is what the perpetual Campaigner-in-Chief has been doing for nearly 5 year as President. He has been on a never ending campaign, first for his reelection and secondly to promote the benefits of a bigger government.

Obamacare will be no different as it will expand government into every facet of our lives, and the sad thing is, the Obama propaganda machine promoting this looming disaster is financed with YOUR tax dollars.

It will make you stronger. It will give you peace of mind and make you feel like a winner. Health insurance is what the whole country has been talking about, so don’t be left out.

Sound like a sales pitch? Get ready for a lot more. As President Barack Obama’s health care law moves from theory to reality in the coming months, its success may hinge on whether the best minds in advertising can reach one of the hardest-to-find parts of the population: people without health coverage.

The campaign won’t come cheap: The total amount to be spent nationally on publicity, marketing and advertising will be at least $684 million, according to data compiled The Associated Press from federal and state sources.

About 16 percent of Americans are uninsured, but despite years of political debate and media attention, more than three-quarters of them still know little about the law known as “Obamacare,” according to recent surveys.

“It’s not sugar cereal, beer and detergent,” said Brooke Foley, chief executive officer of the Chicago-based Jayne Agency, one of the advertising firms crafting messages to reach the uninsured.

The Obama administration and many states are launching campaigns this summer to get the word out before enrollment for new benefits begins in October.

The targets are mostly the working poor, young people who are disengaged, or those who gave up their insurance because of the cost. Three-quarters are white. Eighty-six percent have a high school education or less. Together they make up a blind spot in the nation’s health care system.

“They’ve been shut out. It’s too expensive and it’s incredibly confusing,” said David Smith of the advertising agency GMMB, pitching the health law’s benefits in Washington and Vermont.
