Posted on 06/30/2012 4:15:35 PM PDT by CaroleL
In the aftermath of their Supreme Court victory, supporters of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (a.k.a. Obamacare) are lamenting over their inability to sell the law to the American people. According to a recent poll, only 34 percent approve of Obamacare while 48 percent disapprove and that was before the Supreme Court affirmed that it is one of the biggest tax increases in history.
Dr. Ezekiel J. Emanuel, a former White House adviser who was involved in developing Obamacare blames a lack of salesmanship. "Unfortunately, we never had a really effective strategy around communicating to the public the benefits and the rationale behind health care reform," he said. "We never had a spokesperson, and the public never really understood what we were doing."

Boo frigin Hoo!
The Commies who want to redistribute everybody else’ stuff don’t understand why they can’t get everybody else to shut up and do as they are told.
Note to Dr. Ezekiel J. Emanuel: it’s impossible to pickup a turd by the clean end.
Dr. Ezekiel J. Emanuel, a former White House adviser who was involved in developing Obamacare blames a lack of salesmanship. "Unfortunately, we never had a really effective strategy around communicating to the public the benefits and the rationale behind health care reform," he said. "We never had a spokesperson, and the public never really understood what we were doing."I took my car into a local body shop repair place this morning (just needed some minor work) and while I was waiting in the waiting room for someone to take a look at my car and give me an estimate (just about a 10 minute wait) I watched CNN on their bigscreen TV. I only watch that POS Obamugabe propaganda network in small bits like this (10 minutes in the autobody shop, 20 minutes in the bank lobby, etc, and very rarely at that) but it never ceases to amaze me when I do see it.
The "journalist" was "interviewing" someone with questions like, "So it's not really a tax, right? Could you explain to me how it's not at all a tax."
And the interviewee (some sub-retard from Harvard School of Government or something) "explained" how it's "definitely not a tax".
And on the screen, on the crawl at the bottom of the screen, were words to the effect that "The Affordable Health Care Act is accompanied by a fee or penalty but it is not a tax" (something like that).
So please don't f*ing lie to me, ok, Dr. Ezekiel, about how ObamugabeCare doesn't have a "spokesperson", ok, you stinking dip-shit. It's got the whole f*ing media on its side, ok?
Let's just keep that straight.
Dr. Ezekiell Emmanual is a real piece of work
Ezekial Emanuel, MD-Rahms brother...and the White House advisor to health care 2008-2010- has also advocated basing medical decisions on a system which produces a priority curve on which individuals aged between roughly 15 and 40 years get the most chance, whereas the youngest and oldest people get chances that are attenuated.
He needs to be ObamaCared....
If the American people can’t see Obamacare for the $1.8 Trillion TAX MANDATE that the Supreme Court has confirmed it to be... then we deserve 4 more years of Obama.
Dr. Ezekiell Emmanual would have made a good Nazi.
Well, it’s a way to deal with the problem of Social Security...have people die sooner so they can’t collect Social Security very long.
Upset because Obama and the RATS couldn’t communicate
“... the benefits and the rationale behind health care reform,” ....
Well, DUH...Obamacare is NOT about healthcare reform. that’s probably why its so hard to communicate that. ha. Its the antithesis of “reform”!
HA! Ludicrous..but then what do you expect?
“the public never really understood what we were doing.”
When I’m getting a piece of garbage shoved down my thoat after a closed door and secretive sessions, I know what you’re doing.
When I am denied a chance to view the bill and not one representative has read it and I’m told it has to pass before anyone would know what’s in it, I know what you’re doing.
Nothing I’ve ever seen of congress comes close to the deceitful, dispicable and dishonest process this bill took. Outrage is an understatement of how I feel.
His brother too:
This Dr. Ezekiel J. Emanuel, of course, is Rahm Emanuel's equally lefty brother.
Memo to Zeke: When you have a lousy product, it's always a hard sell, especially to a more intelligent crowd.
The third brother is/was an agent in Hollywood....many of his clients donate to____________________
Or either of the Emmanuel brothers.
They can’t call having their ‘mandate’ revealed as a tax a win. I’m anxious to hear what George Steppinalloverus has to say tomorrow, concerning his previous interview when Obama insisted it wasn’t a tax.
I think calling it a ‘tax’ sealed Obama’s doom.
I guess he's saying Obama's a failure. I'd agree, but not for the same reasons as Dr. Emanuel.
I agree! We were all so disappointed but I think there are some rays of sunshine in there. “Biggest Tax Ever” needs to be broadcast from now to the election plus the fact that Obama and his cohorts LIED about it over and over.
“Well, its a way to deal with the problem of Social Security...have people die sooner so they cant collect Social Security very long.”
I suspect that’s part of the “utility” of this bill, at least in Congress’ eyes....
