The Obama administration on Tuesday will launch a campaign to promote the broader benefits of the president’s signature health care law, after widespread criticism from both Republicans and Democrats over HealthCare.gov’s technical problems and insurance policy cancellations.
President Obama will pitch the Affordable Care Act at a White House event where he’ll be flanked by people who have been helped by the law, according to an administration official.
The president will also take aim at Republican-led efforts to repeal ObamaCare, arguing the GOP is trying to strip away benefits provided under the law without presenting an alternative proposal, the official said.
“Healthcare.gov met our self-imposed November 30th deadline and even as we continue to make improvements to the website, we’ll also remind the public about how the Affordable Care Act is already making a positive difference in the lives of millions of Americans today,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said in a statement.
In other words, the White House and its useful idiot minions who claim you’re better off without the insurance plan you liked will employ the same tactic they’ve been using all along when it comes to the so-called “Affordable Care Act”: Repeat a lie often enough that (hopefully – to ObamaCo) people will start to believe it (again). This time around, with millions losing their insurance or getting ready to find out they are in the coming weeks, I’m not so sure it will work. People are pi**sed, and they’re pointing their fingers directly at the White House and Democrats as the sources for their health insurance frustrations. And rightly so.
