Of course, NBC does a pretty fine job of ruining the Games with their constant focus on yapping and human interest stories rather than showing the actual events. This is just the icing on the cake
(Politico) The Obama administration is planning an Olympic-size ad blitz to push health coverage during the winter games next month.
HHS confirmed Tuesday that it has bought advertising time in markets with high rates of uninsured people to air during the Winter Olympics, which run Feb. 7-23.
Sigh. But, there is a silver lining here in North Carolina
The ads immediately became attack fodder in the fiercely contested Senate race in North Carolina, where endangered Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan has been hammered for supporting the law.
“It just reinforces the reality that Kay Hagan repeatedly broke promises she made about Obamacare to North Carolina voters and will not be able to hide from the unpopular law,” said NRSC spokesman Brad Dayspring. “Mary Landrieu said the 2014 elections are a referendum on Obamacare, and this suggests that the administration believes that.”
Obviously, Hagan is attempting to run away from her links to Obama and Obamacare. Her spokesweasel even said “This election isn’t about the Affordable Care Act.” That might be news to Debbie Wasserman-Schultz.
Anyhow, now Obamacare will make the Winter Games even more unwatchable.
