We have a WINNER! There were many, many contenders.. all of them worthy of their regulatory “chops”.. but in the end.. only one regulatory roustabout could be deemed “Most Maddening”. Read all about it here!
The White House and its liberal allies are planning a comprehensive public-relations campaign for the second anniversary of Obamacare and the Supreme Court oral arguments that will take place later this month. A four-page strategy memo obtained by The Heritage Foundation outlines the strategies and messaging planned for the coming weeks.
The memo, which is published below, includes a day-by-day breakdown of how the White House and liberal advocacy organizations want to frame the debate. The New York Times first reported on the Obama administration’s coordination efforts, including a White House meeting last week with more than 100 people present. The Center for American Progress, Families USA, Health Care for America Now, and Protect Your Care are among the groups mentioned on the memo.
As the two-year anniversary approaches on March 23, the memo urges advocacy groups to stress these two points:
• “Remind people that the law is already benefiting millions of Americans by providing health care coverage, reducing costs and providing access to healthcare coverage. This message will include the ideas that these are benefits that politicans/the Court art (sic) are trying to take away from average Americans.”
• “Frame the Supreme Court oral arguments in terms of real people and real benefits that would be lost if the law were overturned. While lawyers will be talking about the individual responsibility piece of the law and the legal precdedence, organizations on the ground should continue to focus on these more tangible results of the law.”
During the three days of oral arguments, the groups plan to provide space for a media filing center as well as radio and TV broadcasts at the United Methodist Building, adjacent the U.S. Supreme Court. The court will begin hearing arguments on March 26 and conclude on March 28.
Liberals aren’t the only ones with plans to mark the anniversary and oral arguments. Americans for Prosperity will hold a “Hands Off My Health Care Rally” in Washington, D.C., on March 27, the second day of arguments at the Supreme Court.
The four-page memo is below.
Now you know. Tell your friends about your advance knowledge of the leftist playbook and how Obama plans to manipulate the “news”, and by extension, America. Remember the true “COSTS” of this Obamanation kick in HARD after the elections. Funny the coincidence, eh?
Democrats are now admitting that they consider the Constitution should be ignored in order to impose this “new right”.. bestowed by Congress. Huh? Either we have a Constitution, or we don’t. She swore to uphold the Constitution, but clearly didn’t mean it. Where does our supreme law of the land declare our rights come from? Congress? Nowhere does it say that.. but it does unequivocally set forth our rights and from where they derive. Nowhere does it say government shall have the right to impose a product purchase on citizens. They just deemed it so. Where does that slippery slope take us? Who knows? History shows us over and over that the road to Hell is paved with “good intentions”.. and she just showed us how this happens. Just ignore the Constitution and we can start making up all kinds of special “rights” and kill anyone who balks at compliance. Hitler’s socialist Germany, Mao’s Communist Chian, Stalin’s Communist Russia.. are just a few examples that come to mind.
Constitutional lawyer makes the case that Obama’s increasingly presumptive grab of power reminds us why the Constitution was put in place.. as an effort to stop would by tyranny, no matter how “well intentioned” the claim.
Listen up, America…
This is what Tyranny looks like. In America.
