Former Bush adviser Karl Rove is charging that the Obama administration is purchasing taxpayer funded ads promoting Obamacare in states where THE ADS MIGHT ALSO HAVE A POLITICAL BENEFIT. For Democrats.
Aww, would the White House do that?
The ads, which could end up costing more than $1 billion, are meant to get everyone excited about Obamacare so they’ll sign up, because if they don’t – particularly young people who don’t want insurance – there won’t be enough money in the system to cover everyone AND THEN PREMIUMS WILL GO UP.
It turns out, some Democrats who are up for reelection are getting a little dyspepsia from the voters over Obamacare. And oh, that’s where the ads are running.
Who says when you give government more power – i.e. Obamacare – the power gets abused? Never happens.
