This is just a reminder to you that we can’t talk loudly or often enough about the dangers of and the damage inflicted by the Affordable Care Act. Why? Because Obamacare is the government. They get to spend our tax money (or use us as collateral for more borrowed spending) to propagandize their program. Furthermore, they have an amazing capacity to interpret their propaganda as “independent” or “nonpartisan.” Thus, from the Capitol City Project:
Families USA (FUSA) — an organization that describes itself as a “national nonprofit, non-partisan organization dedicated to the achievement of high-quality, affordable health care for all Americans” — was given a $1.1 million grant by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation on October 4, 2013, to gather “success stories” of Americans dealing with Obamacare and distribute them to the media who often refer to them as an “independent” group. This is part of a greater upcoming effort to bolster the perception of the lowly health care law.
“The purpose is to bridge the information gap for people who can significantly benefit from the Affordable Care Act,” Ron Pollack, the Co-founder and Executive Director of Families USA, told TIME on October 25, 2013.
However, the organization is a far cry from “non-partisan” and is extremely close to the Obama Administration and Enroll America – the group leading the efforts to sign people up for Obamacare.
Philippe Villers, the president of Families USA, serves as the Secretary and Treasurer of Board of a little-known group called the Herndon Alliance. The Herndon Alliance originated in Herndon, VA in 2005 and produced research the left used to sell the overhaul of the United States health care system and counteract opposition as the president was making a push for Obamacare. As Lachlan Markay of the Washington Free Beacon noted, they are credited with crafting President Obama’s, “If you like your health care plan, you can keep it” message, and are even backed with money from George Soros’ Open Society Institute.
Let us remind people of the simple truth: no Republicans voted for the Affordable Care Act! It was a one-hundred-percent Democrat law. So, by definition, anyone promoting Obamacare is partisan; and anyone saying otherwise is lying in order to gain credibility with the American people. Even apart from that basic fact, the money changing hands and the inter-relationships demonstrate that Families USA is simply a propaganda arm of the Executive Branch of government.
With a cooperative, Liberal, stenographic, news media, it won’t be hard for this group to get their press releases used as news stories. And the mainstream media will probably always treat them as an “independent,” and “non-partisan” source.
We don’t have unlimited credit through government or access to the ability to tax people to finance our message. We have to be dedicated to doing it anyway.
