Pro-Obamacare Lobbyists Hired To Spread “Success” Stories
Former Clinton PR group, health multinational combine forces to sell disastrous Obamacare to unwitting Americans
Oct 25, 2013
With all the terrible (but entirely predictable) fallout stories emerging from the Obamacare launch, including higher premiums, outright cancellations of existing policies, and even hospitals having to cut jobs to meet lower costs, how is the Obama administration going to keep selling the US population on the “Affordable” Care Act?
That’s right, the administration has received a shot in the arm from the news that Families USA, a health care lobbyist group, has received a $1 million grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the largest health philanthropy outfit in the country, to go around spreading Pro-Obamacare stories.
Obviously there is a problem finding such stories at the moment, as barely anyone has been able to sign up, let alone save any money.
Families USA spent a significant amount of time prior to the passage of the new healthcare law advocating its potential benefits and injecting those talking points into the public domain, now the group has been tasked with repeating its previous role.
Ron Pollack, the Executive Director of Families USA, and a former Bill Clinton advisor, will be providing new stories for the media and others who are interested “before the month is over.” “We have a bunch of stories that are in the hopper for vetting,” adds Pollack.
I bet you do sir.
