A nonprofit led by a former aide for President Obama will target the Hispanic population — particularly mothers — in the coming weeks as part of the push to inform Americans about potential benefits under the new health care law.
A key ally in the Obama administration's efforts to promote the health care law announced Wednesday it is leveraging back-to-school season by touting Obamacare to young people and their parents at college campus orientations and backpack giveaways.
In what seems like another era, President Obama declared in a May 23 national security speech that the war on terrorism is ebbing, and that the need for "perpetual wartime footing" is past. Is it? Not according to 77 percent of American voters who say the struggle is ongoing and should remain a "top priority" on the government to-do list. Eighty-six percent of Republicans and 72 percent of Democrats agree with this, according to a Fox News poll released Wednesday.
Over $2 trillion will be poured into Obamacare over the next decade but even that won't be enough, so the government is going to private health care companies and even lobbyists with a begging bowl.
"We're seeing a lot of interest," she said Tuesday on a conference call with reporters.
