It will make you stronger. It will give you peace of mind and make you feel like a winner. Health insurance is what the whole country has been talking about, so don't be left out.
Sound like a sales pitch? Get ready for a lot more. As President Barack Obama's health care law moves from theory to reality in the coming months, its success may hinge on whether the best minds in advertising can reach one of the hardest-to-find parts of the population: people without health coverage.
The campaign won't come cheap: The total amount to be spent nationally on publicity, marketing and advertising will be at least $684 million, according to data compiled The Associated Press from federal and state sources.

(Of course, instead of a benefit, this sign-up will end up costing them thousands each year...but the lemmings will still be feel cool about it)
How are they getting their hands on this money, who is authorizing this vast sum?
Why in the world would he need to have something authorized?
He is THE WON, after all.
Funny,it’s the law of the land and they have to waste almost three quarters of a billion dollars to sell it?
We really are in the twilight zone
An expensive advertising campaign won’t magically make this turkey of a law into gold. It will remain a turkey.
$684M ad campaign...
Yea, of OUR MONEY.
Congress needs to grow a backbone and defund the entire program before odumbo breaks this country with his over the wall ideas. Start calling your reps to get them to repeal the entire “circus” known as “Odumbocare”.
It’s stimulus money to them. AFLAC is offering to help educate and “AVOID FINES”.Pure socialism and those they pau are complicent .
...and who funds the campaign? House Republicans. They extended the resolution. They are responsible..,make them accountable.
You cannot sell a turd as a Payday candy bar... well you can to some evilcrats but not to most Americans. These lies are just pi$$ing off America more and more.
One might think that as people's paychecks shrink because their hours have been cut back, or their health insurance contributions have increased, they might notice. Then again, the last two elections have confirmed that as a nation we've crossed the Rubicon from Constitutional Republic to full-blown Idiocracy.
Since Obama took office, through the end of June 2013, there have been 74,722,750 NICS checks for firearms purchases, or 43.4% of all the NICS checks that have been made since 1998! Maybe it's less than half, but what Obama has been doing scares the willies out of tens of millions of people.
Who “approved” this $684,000,000 spending???? Hello, Congress...Hello?????
