White House Pays Google to Push Obamacare
I am frankly so sick of stories on top of stories showing this administration in cahoots with yet another major corporation or business. I’d rather blog about fun things, but these clowns posing as leaders won’t let me. In an effort to open the eyes of the blind masses,Â I guess I will keep trying to inform in my own little way.
Under a Freedom of Information Act, or FOIA, lawsuit, Judicial Watch learned through Department of Health and Human Services documents that the Obama White House “helped coordinate a multimillion dollar taxpayer-funded campaign to use Internet search engines such as Google and Yahoo to drive web traffic to a government website promoting the Affordable Health Care Act (also known as Obamacare).”
According to Judicial Watch, the campaign, which included PR firm The Ogilvy Group, was designed “to increase public support for the presidentâ€™s health-care overhaul among key Obama campaign demographics, specifically Hispanics, blacks and women.”
“The 2,328 pages of records, obtained by Judicial Watch pursuant to a March 23, 2011, FOIA lawsuit (Judicial Watch v. Department of Health and Human Services (No. 11-608)), include internal correspondence between officials at the HHS office of the Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs, as well as communications with representatives from The Ogilvy Group, the public relations firm hired by the Obama administration to manage the Obamacare campaign,” Judicial Watch reports.
