The Affordable Care Act, the law that Jonathan Gruber (the architect of Obamacare) admitted was full of lies designed to deceive Americans because they are just too stupid to know what’s good for them, isn’t really all that bad. In fact, all it really needs to make it better is an image consultant.
At least that’s the word from former Health and Human Services Secretary, Kathleen Sebelius, who suggested a simple fix to the “bad brand” of Obamacare — CHANGE THE NAME.
In the words of Tommy Flanagan, the Pathological Liar character play by Jon Lovitz on Saturday Night Live…
Actually, the rebranding strategy has worked quite well for the looney-left for quite some time now.
Murdering your unborn child via abortion? That’s called “a choice.”
Exploding government spending? They call that “an investment.”
Raising your taxes? That’s just “paying your fair share.”
Well, you get the idea. Back to Sebelius and her Politico interview.
“Obamacare, no question, has a very bad brand that has been driven intentionally by a lot of misinformation and a lot of paid advertising,” said Sebelius
Actually, I agree with Sebelius on this one, although not in the manner she thinks.
Her implication is that it is those who oppose Obamacare that are guilty of misinformation and using paid advertising. As I mentioned above, Jonathan Gruber has been documented as saying that lies and misinformation had to be used by the pro-nationalized insurance crowd in order to get it passed. And it has been documented that Obama used an Obamacare “slush fund” to finance a massive propaganda campaign.
There’s very little to like about Obamacare, and changing the name won’t change the fact the long list of failures it has brought.
They promised premiums would go down — they are skyrocketing.
They promised that you could keep your doctor — not true.
They promised that you could the plan you have if you liked it — the 2013 Lie of the Year.
Obamacare is a bad law and it’s needs to be fully and completely repealed. Hey, McConnell! Hey Boehner! Are you listening?
