Obamacare Sermons From The TMZ Set


Get ready to see rappers and a desperate housewife hawking President Barack Obama’s Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

Already in talks with the NBA and NFL, the White House is now recruiting the TMZ set to serve as ambassadors for Obamacare.

A Clinton-era White House adviser who now works as a “celebrity political adviser” told The Hill Tuesday he has a number of famous clients who are ready to help the President advertise the virtues of his health care mandate to uninformed Americans.

“I think the White House is very wise to identify partners to help market the Affordable Care Act. Just like any good product, when people are aware of the many benefits it provides, there will be increased demand,” said Trevor Neilson.

Kathleen Sebelius, Secretary of Health and Human Services, said the goal of slathering Obamacare in celebrity cool is to reach people in front of their TV sets.

“We’re going to be going wherever people are,” she explained. “We’re having discussions – active discussions – right now with a variety of sports affiliates, both in terms of what will end up being paid advertising but hopefully some partnership efforts. The NFL, for instance, in the conversations I’ve had, has been very actively and enthusiastically engaged because they see health promotion as one of the things that is good for them and good for the country.”

On the celebrity side, expect to see Eva Longoria, Oprah, Jay-Z, Sarah Jessica Parker and more making a play for the hearts and minds – and wallets – of Americans in the market for a government-mandated, government-subsidized health care plan.

Ben Bullard

Reconciling the concept of individual sovereignty with conscientious participation in the modern American political process is a continuing preoccupation for staff writer Ben Bullard. A former community newspaper writer, Bullard has closely observed the manner in which well-meaning small-town politicians and policy makers often accept, unthinkingly, their increasingly marginal role in shaping the quality of their own lives, as well as those of the people whom they serve. He argues that American public policy is plagued by inscrutable and corrupt motives on a national scale, a fundamental problem which individuals, families and communities must strive to solve. This, he argues, can be achieved only as Americans rediscover the principal role each citizen plays in enriching the welfare of our Republic.

    If the NFL goes that low, they can burn in hell before they see another dime from me.

    Be careful if you decide to promote this piece of garbage…when it blows up, you will be held responsible for the increased premiums, and the angry mobs of people who enrolled….it can come back to bite you in the butt.

      Yup, just read the other day about a democrat who voted for Obama because she felt she could get insurance at a reasonable price for her family. She has a disabled son Nd when she called to get pricing, it was going to cost her, just for the one son, over $1,200.00 a month. She is so mad at this administration and would like to see this repealed before any further damage is done. At first I chuckled because I knew after reading up on his upbringing and past voting that he would not make a good President. But, then reality set in, that their are going to be many more like them.

    I read this on another sited and a lot of people said they are going to High School, College and their children’s sports games instead of watching teams that are supporting Obama care.

    • Junkki

      Yeah for the American Voter. Turn your back on the Administration and their foolishness. His approval rating is continually dropping and his first year is not even done yet.

    They won’t have my viewing time! You support Obama or any of his asinine ideas and my TV will find another station! Don’t preach this bad idea to me, I will not be listening! Everything he does has alternative motives! And none of them good for the citizens of the USA! Tell him to preach it to his buddies, the Muslims! and although I am a register Dem., I will be changing that to independent ! Red and Blue turn me Purple with rage over the sneaky , lying, underhandedness of this admin. Election day I will vote for who ever is NOT there already! They are all crooks!

    White House, get our message, quit wasting our tax money in Hollywood. If you have to use sports, Hollywood and tabloid media to sell Obamacare, then it is BAD FOR AMERICA.

    The answer to these “Very Rich” people supporting “The affordable care act”.
    Write down their names and boycott their agenda. Hey very Rich people, we made you rich and you want more from us. Use Your money to support the not so affordable health care act. If anyone buys into this garbage by the Hollywood and Sports people – shame on you. Boycott any person or product that is used in the “Propaganda”. It is time they feel the heat from the same people that made them very “RICH”. Did you hear that Eva, Oprah and the rest. Tell the Congress that passed the bill to include themselves in the bill, tell them to add the Muslims which they exempted from the bill. And last but not least, tell them to read the bill which they claim is to long.
