NFL Sacks Obamacare … NFL Says It Has No Plans to Help Promote the Unpopular and Lie Called Obamacare
The NFL has sacked Obamacare …
As reported at the Washington Examiner, the NFL says no to President Barack Obama, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and Obamacare. The NFL has opted to do the right thing and “Just Say No” to promoting Obamacare. Earlier, the NFL and other sports organizations were being pressured by HHS Secretary Sebelius to act as a propaganda wing of the White House and promote Obama’s healthcare law. A law that is so unpopular with the American people that only 37% of Americans according to recent polls actually support it. However, the marketing savvy NFL decided to want no part of being put in the middle of an unpopular health care law that would alienate a majority of its fans. Compare Obama’s popularity to that of the NFL that is at an all-time high. What many, especially government and Obama do not understand is that sports is the ultimate environment that brings people together of all backgrounds. When a sports fan is at a stadium, bar or party no one cares about ethnicity, religion or political affiliation. It is a group of people with the common goal of a love of the sport and their favorite team. Why would anyone in their right might who runs a sports league or a team want to destroy that which makes sports great? Who would want a divided fan base that would boycott your product or worse, turn their allegiance elsewhere to another sport? But for Obama, the Divider in Chief, the community agitator, he knows nothing else but to divide people against one another to get his way.
Obamacare sacked by the NFL … go elsewhere for your propaganda
UPDATE: NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy emails:
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 PPACA’s implementation.
(Read the letter that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and Senate Minority Whip John Cornyn, R-Texas, sent the NFL in the embedded viewer below this story.)
Under pressure to promote President Obama’s health care law, the administration is in talks with the National Football League to form a marketing partnership during the upcoming season. The Department of Health and Human Services has reached out to the NFL – along with the National Basketball Association and Major League Baseball – in hopes of reaching a key demographic of younger Americans. It would be a big mistake for any sports league to inject itself into the contentious political battle over Obamacare, but I’d like to just focus on the NFL for now.
According to polls, Obamacare is extremely unpopular and getting worse as Americans continue to learn what was shoved down their throats by partisan Democrat vote. A recent poll by the Kaiser Family Foundation, 43% of Americans have an unfavorable view of Obamacare compared with just 35% who have a favorable view. Those poll numbers are probably even more amplified by those who are fans of the NFL.
As Weasel Zippers states, the 12 liberals who watch football are inconsolable, HA!
However, the main issue here is that PR is not the answer to Obamacare. President Barack Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the Democrats who passed this law against the will of the American people have had more than enough time to present this boondoggle to the American public. The problem is, it is a terrible law that was a lie. Obamacare does not lower costs, its raises premiums. Obamacare does not cover all people without insurance. Obamacare does not let you keep your doctor either. Thus, in the end, Obamacare is and always has been a lie. As The Weekly Standard opines, all the lipsticking of this pig” is not going to change the fact that Obamacare is bad for Americans and bad for America.
Hmm, so is the NFL now considered racist because they would not support Obama’s agenda?
