Another Reason They Should Have Read the Bill: The $8 Billion ObamaCare PR Budget

Obviously no one read Section 4002 in the Affordable Care Act, because if they had they would have seen that this little section created a fund to promote Obamacare.Here are the staggering numbers allocated to promote this monstrosity.In 2010 it is $500 million, in 2011, $750 million, 2012, $1 billion, 2013, $1.25 billion, 2014, $1.5 billion and in 2015 and on, $2 billion!

“The Prevention and Public Health Fund will provide for expanded and sustained national investment in prevention and public health programs to improve health and help restrain the rate of growth in private and public sector health care costs”.If you read between the lines they are saying that this fund will be used to sell the idea of Obamacare in any way that they see fit.

The media blitz started when funds were given to media companies like NBC, The Washington Post, Reuters, and CBS along with journalist symposiums.Propaganda is currently being woven into the storylines of television shows like Modern Family, Grey’s Anatomy along with other popular shows.Commercial ads are being taken out as well to tout the fabulous law that is ObamaCare! There is even word around town that TV executives are toying with creating a reality show around a family who has no health care!

So now we have come to a point where sponsors of television shows don’t just sell us cars or soap, now they are selling a political agenda funded by taxpayers. Of course Hollywood will be onboard!

Non-profit organizations are getting into the act as well.If they are committed to promoting Obamacare, they get a piece of the pie.When any of these organizations feel that they can put their hand in the cookie jar, they will.

To increase public support for the program, $8 million has gone for a public relations contract.This is to convince people who are skeptical or confused that ObamaCare is the Holy Grail of health care and they need to enroll right away.They are also planning massive advertising campaigns in other languages, putting propaganda on coffee cup sleeves at colleges and buying ads at professional soccer games to target Hispanic men.

It isn’t enough that taxpayers are strapped financially with the burdens already on them, now more tax dollars are being spread around to promote something that Americans overwhelmingly do not want!

With the disastrous website roll-out, Americans have seen their hard earned tax dollars flushed down the toilet.Three years and billions of dollars later, we basically have to scrap the whole thing and start over thus costing us billions more.

It doesn’t surprise me that this administration is using public relations propaganda to promote a partisan agenda with taxpayer money, and it also doesn’t surprise me that this little hidden section was buried in a bill that no one read or wanted.We live in a world where every day the government is lying to, stealing from, and screwing over the American taxpayer.

Perhaps the American people will see through this publicity sham and realize that no matter how you package it, ObamaCare is this years--- New Coke.
