Obama Will Use Librarians To Push Obama-Care

First we have this buried in the Health & Science section of the Washington Post:

NFL says no to promoting Obamacare

By Sandhya Somashekhar [sic] and Lenny Bernstein | June 28, 2013  

The National Football League is used to big, bruising battles. But on Friday, it announced that it was likely staying out of one of the roughest fights in Washington: the war over Obamacare.

Earlier this week, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius disclosed that the Obama administration was in talks with the sports organization to help promote the law, which enters a new phase as advocates prepare to begin enrolling millions of Americans in health insurance this fall.

On Friday, Republican leaders in the Senate issued a stern warning to sports organizations not to partner with the White House on an issue marked by such “divisiveness and persistent unpopularity.”

Asked about the congressional letter, NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said the league had not made any commitment to the administration. “We have responded to the letters we received from members of Congress to inform them we currently have no plans to engage in this area and have had no substantive contact with the administration about [the health-care law’s] implementation,” he said in an e-mail…

But the Obama team never rests.

From the Associated Press:

Librarians to help with health law

By CARLA K. JOHNSON | June 28, 2013

CHICAGO (AP) — The nation’s librarians will be recruited to help people get signed up for insurance under President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul. Up to 17,000 U.S. libraries will be part of the effort to get information and crucial computer time to the millions of uninsured Americans who need to get coverage under the law.

The undertaking will be announced Sunday in Chicago at the annual conference of the American Library Association, according to federal officials who released the information early to The Associated Press…

Libraries equipped with public computers and Internet access already serve as a bridge across the digital divide, so it made sense to get them involved, said Julie Bataille, spokeswoman for the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services…

Libraries will be particularly important in conservative states that are not making much effort to promote the health law’s opportunities…

Those bastards!

But all of this aimed at young people. We wonder if the librarians will tell these young people the truth. That nobody is getting Obama insurance. All they are getting is a fine if they don’t buy insurance. Which has skyrocketed because of Obama’s mandates, and because the young have to subsidize the elderly.

    Hitler Youth Camps revisited and we know how well that turned out.

    Aimed at young people? Puckey! My generation doesn’t read and the next one cannot, so libraries are a bad bet for that audience. More likely to target target homeless people after they go into the library for a nap and BM.

      My local library is essentially an internet cafe/movie rental outpost for those who can’t afford home access. These people don’t have any money to pay for healthcare. In most cases they already have it through their parents Medicaid. These people are already Obamaniacs anyway.

    • GetBackJack says:

      The library down in town is a nest of (and I’m not kidding) Wiccans and women who love other women. They are down 4square with everything Obama. And they can’t figure out why the citizens of the County keep voting down expansion funding via new taxes.

      And it’s a place for the homeless to wash up in the bathrooms and then surf porn.

      Lovely place.
