Feds Spend $20 Million for a PR Campaign to Promote Obamacare

Written by Gary North on May 23, 2012

The U.S. Supreme Court may decide in June 2012 to kill portions of Obamacare. If it kills the compulsory funding portion of the law, the whole system sinks.

The White House is wasting no time to see what the Supreme Court dies. It has signed a $20 million contract with a PR firm to promote the program.

What will the government get for the money? No one knows. It has something to do with educating the public on the need to stay healthy and prevent illness.

It is obvious that the voters would prefer to get sick, were it not for a $20 million advertising campaign. This money is vital. If the White House had not signed the contract, the opportunity might have lapsed in June.

When the White House has a message to get to the public, it matters not a whit that Obamacare may be unconstitutional. Would mere unconstitutionality prevent the White House from getting out its message? Of course not.

Strike while the iron is hot, Obama always says.

So, the public will be told that it is not a good idea to get sick. From across the land, thankful voters, who otherwise would not have known that it’s not good to get sick, with thank their lucky stars that the White House did not let $20 million go to waste.

The PR firm, Porter Novelli, did not immediately respond to a request for comment. This seems a little odd. I mean, the outfit is in the business of public relations. Here is an opportunity to relate to the public, yet it is being coy. It’s almost as if the company expected ridicule for having taken on a contract to promote a program that may be illegal in a month.

  1. USING OUR TAX DOLLARS TO PROMOTE A HEALTH PLAN DEBACLE THAT THE MAJORITY OF THE PEOPLE OPPOSE!!!!!!!!!!! WHATEVER HAPPENED TO A GOVERNMENT OF, BY AND FOR THE PEOPLE? THIS IS THE LOWEST OF THE LOW TRICKS PULLED LBY THIS SO-CALLED AMINISTRATION AND IT'S HIGH TIME THEY ALL LOST THEIR FAT-CHECK JOBS1 LET'S SHOW THEM THIS NOVEMBER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Where do they get money for things like this when taxpayers' money is designated for certain funds.

  3. They will get the money from the Health and Human Services budget. Each year the departments submit a budget for the following year. This cost will be hidden in the HHS operational appropriation budget.

  4. Maybe Obama's friends on the S. Ct. have already assured him the program will stand, and the purpose of the PR contract is to "explain" it to us.

    Obama has spent our money like a drunken sailor. The only difference is that the druken sailor HAD TO STOP SPENDING WHEN HE RAN OUT OF MONEY. Obama has his OWN PRINTING PRESS SO MORE MONEY IS NO PROBLEM. I HOPE THAT SHERIFF ARPIO PROVES BEYOND ANY DOUBE THAT OBAMA'S BIRTH CERTIFICATE IS FRADUALENT AND THAT OBAMA HAS TO SPEND THE REST OF HIS LIFE IN FEDERAL PRISON.

  6. How can it kill a PORTION of Obamacare? I've heard more than once that this bill was written with a no severance clause. It's all or NOTHING. Obamacare has to be completely removed and SMALL laws such as competition amongst states written. One small step at a time written by CONGRESS, not lobbyists.

  7. Gary Stockman, Anthony Viceroy, et al. want to enslave you if that's what it will take to make a few bucks. Same as the military contractors.

    But, that's the way of the Chicago thug dictator, illegal immigrant B-o-o-o-o-. Don't you get it yet. When the man child doesn't get his way, he has a black hate fit and he goes behind your back like a thug. But, Congress will take this away. They have been doing this all along. Maybe, BO has figured this out. They have been using a stealth process of removing money through bills that numb nuts has been signing. Ha!, ha!, ha!. BO, go home to Kenya.

    One of Obama communist cronies must need spme money. Just like Solyndra but not as much money. Having been in the PR business I'll do the job for $19,000,000. I didn't get a chance to bid because Obama knows I despise him.

  10. What is Public Relations?

    Here is the "Widely Accepted Definition", new this year, of the Public Relations Society of America:

    Public relations is a strategic communication process that builds mutually beneficial relationships between organizations and their publics.

    If Kenyacare were such a great deal, they could spend twenty mill to try and keep people away and we'd still line up around the block to sign up. Too many gobmunt jackals about these days…. send the lot of them back to from where they came. Kenya needs a few "good men", hoping for come change. I'm hoping for some change, alright, lets start with the roster of people lccupying 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, at the old swamp alongside the Potomac River.
