White House and HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in talks with NFL on Promoting ObamaCare … Now the NFL is a Propaganda Shill for Obama?
A note to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell … DON’T DO IT, DON’T RUIN YOUR BRAND … SHUT UP AND PLAY FOOTBALL!
Is the NFL trying to lose viewership? According to a report from The Hill, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said that she was in talks with the NFL to help promote Obamacare. Can these people leave nothing alone that is an enjoyable diversion from the hell that has been the Obama administration? The NFL is a sport, not about politics. It is supposed to be about the great teams of the past like the 1960′s Green Bay Packers, the 1970′s Pittsburgh Steelers, the 1980′s San Francisco 49′ers, the 1990′s Dallas Cowboys and the 2000′s New England Patriots. Its about the who’s who of great players like Johnny Unitas, Walter Payton, Dick Butkis and Jim Brown who have laced up the cleats and put on the helmets that are enshrined in the Football Hall of Fame in Canton, OH. It is about legendary coaches like Paul Brown, Bill Walsh, Don Shula, George Halas, Tom Landry and Vince Lombardi. It is about the fans and their love of the game. The NFL is not about, nor should it ever be about Obamacare. Dear NFL, are you trying to piss off your fans, in being a tool of Barack Obama. Are you intentionally trying to ruin the sport? Obamacare is unraveling and the NFL looks to be a useful idiot in promoting a very unpopular lie to We the People. BRILLIANT!
Really NFL, this is the guy who you want to hitch your wagon to? A Prez who couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn with a football?
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said Monday she is in talks with the NFL to help promote new insurance options under ObamaCare.
Sebelius said the football league has been “very actively and enthusiastically engaged” in discussions about a partnership to encourage people to enroll in newly available insurance plans.
“We’re having active discussions right now with a variety of sports affiliates” about both paid advertising and partnerships to encourage enrollment, Sebelius told reporters.
It is simply amazing that a sport that has passed baseball for America’s favorite past time would ruin its image with its fans over something as unpopular as Obamacare. As stated at Professor Bainbridge, “Memo to Roger Goodell: I’ll take my NFL football without Obamacare propaganda.” Obamacare is unpopular not because people do not know or understand what’s in it, Americans are upset with Obamacare because they are learning every day what lies were told to them by Barack Obama and his minion Democrats with regards to the government take over of healthcare. There is a reason why Obamacare continues to be unpopular with more than half of America. It’s not because of a lack of marketing. After all this time, Obama still has not been able to sell the failure called Obamacare, go figure.
I have to agree 100% with Weasel Zippers sentiments, do they have to ruin everything for us?
Isn’t it quite ironic that the NFL would even think of engaging in talks to promote this boondoggle known as Obamacare, the very league who was AWOL on concussions and providing proper healthcare for its former past great players? Keep it up NFL, Obamacare is extremely unpopular. According to a recent new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, just 37 percent say the plan is a good idea.
The Obama WH is also targeting the NBA. The Daily Caller has a chart that shows what the highest paid NBA players would pay with the Obamacare tax.
