As most of the last benefits from ObamaCare are about go into effect, the Obama administration is doing everything they can to inform the public, increase participation, and make the law better for everyone. Sadly Republicans, displaying that they have no honor, are unwilling to keep the agreements they made when the law was passed, so they are doing everything they can to make YOUR health care less efficient and more expensive.
…The message is clear. Few things are more important to the White House this year than a successful health care rollout on Oct. 1, when millions of uninsured Americans will be required to obtain private health coverage in government-run marketplaces. Getting it right — or wrong — will help determine Mr. Obama’s place in history.
Enter the Obamacare Team, some two dozen political operators and data-crunching technocrats charged with carrying out the biggest health care overhaul since Medicare in the 1960s — but with more pitfalls. Their job is to sell the law to large numbers of Americans who remain divided about its value and wary of its impact. Republicans have seized on one Democratic description of the health care law as a “train wreck,” particularly after the administration announced a politically damaging one-year delay in a key provision of the law.
Working out of war rooms in the West Wing basement, the Eisenhower Executive Office Building and the Department of Health and Human Services, the team is first trying to find in the next year 2.7 million uninsured people between 18 and 35, most of whom are healthy. Just as Mr. Obama’s electoral success hinged on the turnout machine he created in Chicago, the fate of the health care law rests on whether his administration can turn out and enroll the uninsured.
“The key for us is to take this out of the abstract and make it very, very, very real,” one of the leaders of the effort, David Simas, told a dozen White House aides during a strategy session in the West Wing last week… [emphasis added]

That one year delay in the employer mandate would never have been necessary, were it not for Republican sabotage slowing down the process od informing them by confusing employers with lies.
Meanwhile, on the evil side of the street, Republicans are preparing their own rollout plans. Rachel Maddow and Senator Al Franken (D-MN), the guy who originally coined the term "Supply-side Jesus", discussed the Republican Health Care Emergency scam.
Republicans do not want ObamaCare to work healthier and cheaper for everyone. They want more money for insurance companies and less care for you. We need all the messengers we can get, and we need Real Americans at those Republican Town Halls meetings, debunk their lies, and call them out for their anti-American sabotage of people’s health care. The 80/20 rule is an excellent feature. The seniors’ features are also great.
Of course the alternative is RepubliCare. Do you want to receive the RepubliCare death benefit?
