Michelle knows best: Kids ‘owe’ it to their moms to enroll in Obamacare
The White House is apparently turning to guilt to drive Americans toward Obamacare.
First lady Michelle Obama told “Keeping it Real with Reverend Al Sharpton” that children owe it to their mothers to enroll in Obamacare.
“You know, young people aren’t just living out there on their own. If they get sick and can’t afford it, who’s going to have to come in and clean up that financial mess but the parents and grandparents who care about them?”
And quickly came the punch line.
“So young people owe it to their mothers, to give mothers the peace of mind to know that they are insured and that they can take care of themselves if something goes wrong.”
The White House has been exerting considerable effort lately to undo and overcome falling poll numbers that are tied directly to America’s growing dissatisfaction with Obamacare – and with President Obama’s numerous false statements that those who wanted to keep their existing plans could do so.
The administration just wrapped a 16-day public relations campaign to push the public onto the exchange rolls. Part of that reach-out: To target mothers, and press them to sign family members up for Obamacare.
