The Stars Come Out and the Selling of ObamaCare Begins This Fall

It's about time to get the Obama all-star supporting cast out for the selling of ObamaCare, which will be happening this fall.

Since facts alone aren't going to make it a good deal, let the hard sell begin.

And since the young will be getting the worst deal, my guess is that they will be the ones most heavily targeted by the PR blitz. So beware of those bearing false gifts, my young friends.

(See last Sunday's post titled "ObamaCare Asks the Question: How Dumb Are the Young Adults?")

The Democratically aligned stars from the NFL, NBA, Hollywood and on and on will be part of the effort to convince us that the new "Affordable Care Act," aka ObamaCare, really is going to be good for all Americans.

To which I say, good luck with selling that deal, Mr. President.

ObamaCare rollout effort may get aid from football, Hollywood stars has the story:

"The White House is gearing up for an Obamacare promotional blitz, and is recruiting from pro football and Hollywood to help with the effort.
On Tuesday, The Hill reported that the White House also would seek out the help of Hollywood stars in its effort. It quotes Trevor Neilson, a Clinton White House official who now runs the Global Philanthropy Group. He represents such stars as Eva Longoria and John Legend, and says he’s in talks with the Obama administration on the issue. But it’s unclear whether the two stars — both Obama supporters — will be asked to join the effort.

“I think the White House is very wise to identify partners to help market the Affordable Care Act,” Neilson was quoted as saying. “Just like any good product, when people are aware of the many benefits it provides, there will be increased demand.”

That came on the heels of another report effort on Monday, when Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said during a media briefing that she is in talks with the National Football League to get it to help promote health insurance exchanges expected to launch Oct. 1 as part of President Obama’s health-care overhaul.

The exchanges are designed to sign up roughly 7 million uninsured before the main components of the overhaul, commonly known as Obamacare, take effect Jan. 1. Kaiser Health News reported that Sebelius also is talking with other sports leagues on getting help with encouraging the uninsured to get coverage."

Summing Up

Enjoy watching the games and going to the movies this autumn --- if you can.

And that's all I have to say about that.

Thanks. Bob.
