Spiking the Obamacare Football ?
Guess all that shaking down the insurance companies for funding and assistance in promoting ObamaCare didn’t work. Now Sebelius is hitting up the NFL (see link below). Hmmm … guess we now know what all that “concussion” chatter was about a few weeks ago.
Seems to me the NFL has been whipped into line by the administration: Support our health care train wreck and maybe we’ll lighten up on you. Seems to me the NFL is buying some time before the HHS starts investigating all those head injuries. Or, perhaps the NFL and/or all the team owners, are afraid of an IRS audit, ay?
When Kathleen Sebelius says, “… the most daunting aspect is that people still don’t know enough about what’s going to change in the law and don’t have enough information — still have some misinformation,” she’s full of it…
The people who ARE paying attention, are the people who DO pay taxes, and they know all too well why they don’t want this intrusion into their lives.
The NFL had better understand that it is the people who ARE paying attention and who DO pay taxes that ARE the ones who PAY for tickets to games, foods at concession stands, memorabilia at the stadiums, season tickets, etc. The Obama administration is looking to use the NFL (and the NBA, by the way) to push their propagandist misinformation to the know-nothing, low information, gimme-dese, gimme-dats ObamaPhone crowd.
I’m no big football fan, but it seems to me that the tens of millions of Americans who are, had better start firing up the phone lines to the NFL.
They need to get the STRONG message that if they so publicly and vocally get behind this ObamaCare monstrosity, if they agree to let themselves be used to spew the ObamaCare spin through the TVs in millions of homes of football fans who only care to watch a game, they can kiss everyone’s a** goodbye.
Fans should not buy any more NFL licensed product EVER again; and should end their subscriptions to the. NFL network on cable. The NFL is SUPPOSED to be entertainment and a distraction from the mess this country is in– and NOT be a part of it. It is NOT supposed to get in bed with a government program that the MAJORITY of Americans don’t approve of and had rammed down their throats.
How dare the NFL allow themselves to be used as a socialist ObamAlinksy tool. If this comes to be, I can tell you one thing for a FACT: The NFL will stand for “Not For Long” in my house.
