Govít spent $700M promoting ObamaCare, despite Obama claim

President Obama contended that the government did not "make a hard sell" for Obamacare, despite his administration spending nearly $700 million to promote the law.

"We didn't make a hard sell," Obama said in the Rose Garden on Tuesday, praising the 7.1 million sign ups for the Affordable Care Act. "We didn't have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did."

However, last July the Associated Press reported that Obamacare's marketing campaign would cost at least $684 million.

Taxpayer funding went to all 50 states in efforts to encourage people to enroll...

Seven hundred million taxpayer dollars wasted by a Kenyan pimp to pimp communism to what was once the most free nation on the planet. Our parents and grandparents are spinning in their graves. Shameful.

A friend of mine in KC has a mid-level Fed job and was required to work on week-ends in the last several weeks, going to churches to sign up bottom-feeders to BarackHusseinCare. How many other hundreds/thousands of OUR employees were out shilling for this pig?

Your math is fuzzy, but your premise is dead on. My gf asked the other day why I rolled my eyes and groaned everytime I saw a commercial for OSHIT (Obama Supplemental Health Insurance Tax). Ever see a big name celebrity endorse the need to buy health care before this? Of course not, the free faucet of taxpayer money wasn’t on until the force of government was behind it.

Obamacare is a HUGE voter fraud machine----plugging unsuspecting enrollees into Democrat voter rolls---to fulfill this ding-a-ling's dream of a permanent Dem majority.

==================================================

Local couple upset after receiving pre-marked voter registration card from "Covered California" (Cali O/Care)
10news | 03-29-2014 | Preston Phillips / FR Posted by Kevin in California

A local couple called 10News concerned after they received an envelope from the state's Obamacare website, Covered California. Inside was a letter discussing voter registration and a registration card pre-marked with an "x" in the box next to Democratic Party.

=============================================

Watta surprise (cackle). Turns out Obamacare is a vehicle for consolidating Dummycrat power.....w/ a multi-billion dollar slush fund.

The Untraceable $8 Billion ObamaCare PR Budget---truly govt fraud at its finest. Egged on by Pelosi, no one in Congress told Americans about Section 4002---which mandates an $8B untraceable fund to "promote" Obamacare (apparently b/c Boobamba had so little confidence in his signature legislation).

In 2010 Taxpayers are extorted $500 million, in 2011, $750 million, 2012, $1 billion, 2013, $1.25 billion, 2014, $1.5 billion and in 2015 and on, $2 billion........

....the reasons for all those O/Care delays, fixits, exemptions, waivers, extensions, etc, are becoming crystal clear.

They had to get the $700 million somewhere. I suggest they got it from the house of representatives. That means Boner and company wrote the check.

Complicit is not the proper term. The Boner contingent are enablers, doing what their masters (who are the same as little barry bastard boy’s masters) tell them to do, to make America what the globalist bastards want it to be, under their complete control.
