Four years ago, it was imperative that the National Affordable Healthcare Act pass…not to provide healthcare to Americans but to transform the United States’ economy.
In 2009, Sam Webb, Chairman of the American Communist Party, indicated that the passing of the Healthcare Bill is a must in order to bring down the American economy. Once Healthcare was passed, according to Webb, they could focus on other movements such as climate change and immigration reform to take over the liberties of Americans.
According to author, Trevor Loudon, Webb said, “Across the country a movement is charging forward.... All sides in this struggle have gone to great lengths to frame the debate and shape public opinion. In the early going the right (Conservatives) had some success with its fear mongering — talk of death panels, socialism, Nazism, etc. — but that changed as health care supporters answered the challenge. … The passage of the legislation by the House constitutes an important victory for comprehensive health care reform and progressive change generally. If the bill had been defeated, we would not be simply back to square one, as some suggest. Rather, health care reform would be off the agenda, indefinitely. Political momentum would shift to the right wing, and prospects would be bleak for a second stimulus, Employee Free Choice, climate change legislation, immigration reform, and other key battles.”
ObamaCare had to pass!
Like many totalitarian movements, they can’t tell you the truth; they have to tell you what you want to hear in order to generate support. In order to pass the bill, the Obama administration moved forward with healthcare learning from the failed steps of Hillary Care.
According to Karen Tumulty of the Washington Post, the Clinton administration’s efforts, in 1994, to insure that the 15 percent of the population lacking coverage would be covered, failed. What destroyed Hillary Clinton’s plan was that people became convinced they were going to lose their health care,’ said Elaine Kamarck, who was a White House aide at the time and now heads the Brookings Institution’s Center for Effective Public Management.
“‘The one lesson that was learned about messaging (marketing) was that you had to guarantee people that nothing will change.” said Kamarck.
Enter Herndon Alliance, hired by the Obama administration to market ObamaCare.
Although Herndon, based in Seattle, says it’s a nationwide non-partisan coalition of more than 200 minority, faith, labor, advocacy, business, and healthcare provider organizations, it’s a far left organization whose job it is to increase support for ObamaCare.
The research component of the Herndon Alliance is provided by Research Specialist Celinda Lake.
As Aaron Klein, in World Net Daily, reported in February 2012, the group, Enroll America, received a grant from the lobbying arm of the progressive Media Matters for America to help the White House to craft and market ObamaCare.
Lake was commissioned by Enroll America to determine how best to market the ObamaCare enrollment campaign to the public. Lake’s survey found that even with tax credits and federal subsidies, those without insurance still considered the cost of ObamaCare too heavy. She recommended Enroll America not cite any specific dollar amounts when trying to convince the uninsured to sign up.
Of course, they didn't cite dollar amounts until millions of Americans already lost their insurance.
Using polling data about what Americans like and don’t like about ObamaCare, Herndon concocted a list of words and statements to use in selling the legislation to the country. Herndon recommended avoiding the following terminology: “Universal health care,” “Canadian Style Health care,” “Medicare for All,” “Competition,” “Government health care for all,” “Regulations,” “Required,” “Public or Government health care,” and “Basic health care.”
Key phrases to use in the messaging of ObamaCare include “Quality affordable health care,” “American solutions,” “A choice of private and public plans,” “Choice and control,” “Giving security and peace of mind,” “Sliding scale, pay what you can afford,” “Government as a watchdog, ensure a fair playing field,” “Affordable health plans” and “Smart investments.”
Many of these phrases were incorporated in the marketing material released by the White House and groups like Enroll America.
Herndon specifically labels women, particularly those over the age of 65, “a key persuadable audience.”
So, when we heard the phrases from Obama such as “if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor” or “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan” as well as “We’re going to work with your employer to lower the cost of your premiums by up to $2,500 a year,” he wasn’t hoping to make those things happen. All of the Obama administration knew they were lies, made up solely for the purpose of scamming Americans.
Remember Sam Webb….the goal is to transform the economy, not bring in healthcare for everyone.
