Is Obamacare working? Vote in our survey!

August 22, 2013 J,

The Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, was sold to the American people as a way to make health care more accessible and more affordable. As the law continues to be dragged towards implementation by the Administration, we want to know what you think of Obamacare.

As you may know, many of the President’s health care industry supporters and allies stand to make huge fortunes on the implementation of Obamacare. This news is just the latest evidence that in addition to being incredibly poor public policy, Obamacare is a leading example of government cronyism at its worst.

One front in the marketing campaign to make Obamacare more popular is being led by Enroll America. The name may sound innocuous enough but the organization is anything but. Shrouded behind their nonpartisan 501(C)(3) charity status is a group of special interests all set to benefit from the implementation of Obamacare… tasked with enrolling more people into Obamacare.

A quick glance at Enroll America’s board of directors reveals that the organization’s support includes big insurance and pharmaceutical players, like Blue Shield of California, Kaiser Permanente and Teva Pharmaceuticals.

As Politico reported earlier this year, Enroll America is working with the President’s campaign team, now dubbed Organizing for America, to “unleash the same grass-roots mobilization and sophisticated micro-targeting tactics seen in the 2012 campaign.”

It’s a pretty good deal for the insurance giants, pharmaceutical companies and other health industry players, who will benefit from what is essentially free advertising for their products, coupled with a mandate that you have to buy those products.

Unfortunately, it also paints a devastatingly ugly picture of the truth behind Obamacare:

It’s a textbook example of government-corporate cronyism at work—all aimed at selling Americans on a health care law they never wanted in the first place.

We all know Obamacare is working for the President’s health care industry supporters and allies but it is working for you?!
