IMMEDIATE RELEASE: AFP-GA & Coalition To Expose Enroll America ObamaCare Front Group At Protest Rallies Around State

August 16, 2013

“Big Insurance” is fronting the Enroll America tax exempt organization. The group, with ties to Kathleen Sebelius and the Obama Administration, is being challenged on their tax exempt status after the Board was revealed to be led by the very special interests who will benefit from ObamaCare

Atlanta – The Georgia chapter of Americans for Prosperity – the nation’s largest grassroots free market organization – is slamming Enroll America for benefiting special interest groups, especially big insurance companies like Blue Cross Blue Shield, and is holding a series of grassroots sign-waving protests near the BCBS offices around the State. The Enroll America organization is just another example of Big Business hopping into bed with Big Government at the expense of taxpayers.

Recently, the government watchdog group, Cause of Action, asked the IRS to withdraw the tax exempt status of Enroll America. Enroll America claims on its website that it is “a nonpartisan 501(C)(3) Organization Whose Mission Is To Maximize The Number Of Uninsured Americans Who Enroll In Health Coverage Made Available By The Affordable Care Act.” However, many of the stakeholders in Enroll America are the very corporations whose bottom lines will directly benefit from more people being signed onto ObamaCare. And the primary insurance targets for Enroll America are young Americans such as recently graduating college students, suggesting a heavier focus in areas like Athens-Clarke.

“It is outrageous that major American corporations would receive tax deductions to fund a non-profit organization which then turns around and recruits new business, literally signs up the new customers, for that same corporation all at the public’s expense. This is the epitome of corporate welfare and political cronyism. It is wrong, and the public should be outraged that corporate America and big government would team up to perpetrate such a scam on the American public,” said Americans for Prosperity State Director Virginia Galloway. “Even Senator Baucus, one of the key authors of ObamaCare, has dubbed the implementation of the law a ’train wreck.’ Empowering political activists to help insurance companies profit is only a recipe for further disaster.”
