Obamacare Was Planted As Talking Point For Liberal Graduation Speakers

05.22.13 09:01 PM

Earlier this week, we told you about the disproportionate ratio*of liberals to conservatives on the annual college graduation commencement speech circuit. Many found a way to sneak in an admonishment for pet liberal issues of one kind or another.

But long before the liberal ambassadors dispersed to stand behind podiums at Harvard (Oprah Winfrey), Princeton (Ben Bernanke), Kenyon College (Michael Bloomberg), Duke (Melinda Gates), Penn (Joe Biden) and, of course, Ohio State (Barack Obama), the President called senior Administration officials together to game plan one especially dear liberal talking point in time for the spring graduation season: Obamacare.

Hand it to Bloomberg Businessweek for walking the talk: The news outlet reported the brainstorming session, including the bit about the campus propagandizing, as the launching point for a Obamacare sales-job strategy the President deployed shortly after winning election to a second term.

Knowing the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act was already unpopular, off schedule and poorly understood in its proposed implementation, Obama told his second-term cronies it was critical that the healthcare law succeed, because it would long be remembered as “one of his major legacies.”
To counter the criticism, the White House has told all Cabinet members and senior officials to use commencement speeches to drive home for graduating college students and their parents the benefits they gain from a provision of the law that allows young adults to stay on their family’s insurance plans until they turn 26.

Despite having already spent $8 million*on selling Obamacare through the machinations of PR firm Weber Shandwick, the President indeed got plenty of dutiful help from the mortarboard orators — and he led from the front, pitching the supposed benefits of the regressive, market-corrupting*plan at both Ohio State and, last week, at traditionally black Morehouse College.
