I’ve never worked in marketing, butt I know when you have to send in “your best salesperson” it’s generally because your product won’t sell itself. No matter what your spokesman says.
“The first lady is the best salesperson” for the White House, senior adviser Valerie Jarrett told POLITICO. She’s getting involved now, Jarrett said, because she’s the right person to convey the message of the moment: that the uninsured — especially young people and minorities — should look for insurance on exchanges and that those with insurance are already feeling the benefits of the law.
And you know what we’re sellin’ needs a good saleswoman when she shows up wearing a high-necked, long sleeved, below the knee, belted at the waist, gray frock. With pearls.
So how bad is it? Well, so far it’s 67%-want-to-delay-Obamacare-53%-forever bad. Not only that, butt the same percent of Americans are wishing Obamacare’s namesake would likewise go away for ever. Let’s face it: when you’ve lost Barbara Walters the end is neigh.
Oh, and by the way, did you catch Barbara’s “Most Fascinating Person of the Year” for 2013? Hilz? Really!? Babs really has lost faith in her personal “messiah” hasn’t she?
Anyway back to Lady M: taking a page from Big Guy’s pledge to “restore America’s faith in government” she’s committed to restore America’s faith in Obamacare.
Just for the record, Big Guy hasn’t quite accomplished his restoration project yet either.
Here we are “Meeting with Moms:”
Because who better to evangelize for Obamacare than moms who just recently discovered how easy it is to take other peoples money for things you used to have to pay for yourself? Who wouldn’t want that for their kids…and themselves?
Take Sue from Missoula, Montana, for example: she was mad when her healthcare plan was cancelled this fall, until she found out she was disadvantaged enough to have other taxpayers subsidize the cost of her new Obamacare plan:
"I got so mad that I went to my phone and started calling all the political people and giving them what for," Spanke told The Billings Gazette. That was before she learned she was eligible for a policy at a much lower cost.
After angrily calling her state auditor's office, Spanke, a self-employed artist in her 50s, found she was eligible for a federal subsidy. Her new insurance will cover her for a mere $30 to $40 a month with a deductible of only $500. She had been paying $350 a month for a Blue Cross policy with a $5,000 deductible. "I went from a horrible policy that didn't cover anything, that was breaking me, to the best policy at the best price I've had since I was in my 20s," she said.
So see there?
“Think of an economy where people could be an artist or a photographer or a writer without worrying about keeping their day job in order to have health insurance.” – Nancy Pelosi
Just like Nan promised, only being an artist was Sue’s day job – so it’s even better!
