The White House is beginning yet another push to sell ObamaCare to a skeptical American public, Politico reported on Friday, in an effort to try to get the uninsured to take part in the state health insurance exchanges, which are expected to open on October 1st.
Participation in ObamaCare’s state insurance exchanges, especially from young Americans, will be a measure of “success” for the administration amid implementation problems, delays of key provisions, and rising premiums that have been attributed to the law. Polls continue to show that Americans disapprove of the law and want it repealed
The White House is so desperate for good news with ObamaCare that they’re literally trying to put some very odd spin on news stories about the law. The Weekly Standard points to one very odd recent example:
David Simas, a White House staffer, tweets (and the White House retweets) a link to an article and adds, “More good ACA [Obamacare] news. 21% savings on premiums for Ohioans who buy their own health insurance because of the ACA.”
