The Obama administration is taking its pro-Obamacare push to the airwaves with a new propaganda campaign, and it’s using your money to pay for it.
The Obama administration is readying a multimillion-dollar onslaught of ads in a dozen red states to encourage Americans to sign up for Obamacare insurance exchanges, media-tracking sources tell POLITICO.
CMS has reserved at least $12 million in airtime starting Sept. 30 in Texas, Florida, Pennsylvania, Arizona, Georgia, Missouri, Ohio, Indiana, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Louisiana and Michigan.
All but one, Missouri, are led by Republican governors — including many who have been hostile to the health law — and even in Missouri, a Republican-dominated legislature has set an anti-Obamacare agenda.
The number of states and the total cost of the ad campaign are both expected to grow with the approach of the enrollment period that begins on Oct. 1. The administration awarded a $41 million PR contract to the firm Weber Shandwick earlier this year to promote participation.
I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that the taxpayers in those states don’t like Obamacare and don’t want to pay for some silly propaganda campaign to promote it either.
A new TV campaign to promote Obamacare may cost taxpayers $12 million. Do you think this should fall on taxpayers? politico.com/story/2013/09/…The Bailey Group @BaileyGroupFLOrder 227 @Order227blogThatDamnDebt @ThatDamnDebtLBN Health Care @LBNHealthCare
