First lady to go on radio blitz for ObamaCare
The Hill ^ | December 17, 2013 | Justin Sink

Posted on 12/18/2013 7:35:16 AM PST by Zakeet

Michelle Obama will sit for a trio of interviews with urban radio stations as part of a coordinated White House blitz intended to promote ObamaCare coverage among mothers and minorities.

The first lady will be interviewed Wednesday evening by Yolanda Adams, Al Sharpton, and Joe Madison, three of the nation’s most popular African American talk radio hosts.

“Her interviews are part of a broader effort by the White House and partnerships with outside groups, faith leaders, and health professionals to encourage African Americans to get covered,” a White House official said.

The first lady’s radio appearances are intended to compliment an afternoon event with the president and mothers who have worked to promote ObamaCare in the Oval Office.

The White House believes women are crucial to their push to get uninsured consumers to sign up for coverage. That’s especially important after the botched rollout of the ObamaCare website prevented early enrollments in the system, leaving the administration playing catch up in the final three months before enrollment closes.

He has something like a 98.3 approval rating with Black Americans. If she feels compelled to do this the internals on Obamacare must REALLY suck!

None of whom are complaining about the "discrimination" or "disenfranchisement" of the Obamacare requirement of providing your name and other identity-type information.

Exactly! It’s a monetary burden to require an ID to vote but no one is screaming about the privacy and cost of Obamacare.

Yeah, that will do the trick. A big spending, pampered, air-head telling people its their responsibility to go hungry so they can pay for her husband’s disaster of a health care program.

Wow, going on black radio to promote the black occupant’s agenda to a black audience?

Their internal polls must REALLY show they are in trouble.

We have one in Indianapolis. There is a “surprising” lack of diversity in their personnel and programming.

I wonder if anybody has ever protested their license renewal for lack of diversity?

Can any of us imagine a white president focusing his messaging of government goodies on a white audience?

I have have 300 hours of music on my thumb drive. The trip from San Diego to Pocatello is nominally 15 hours. I'm sure I can find something more suitable for listening.

Their real problem is that the great bulk of obama voters aren’t will to actually PAY for stuff, esp. if that stuff has been free heretofore. Almost the only only signups they’re going to get are for expanded Medicaid in those states stupid enough to go along with it.

Michelle said she was speaking on 105.7 FM in honor of his approval rating. He gets extra credit ‘cuz he’s so smart and capable.
