ObamaCare 175 by Nicole Tardif

Since Obamacare became law, critics of the new legislation
have come out of the woodwork to highlight its problems. In order
to counteract these sentiments, President Obama is persuading the
highest risk group of uninsured Americans, 18-34 year olds. President Obama has been on a college campus one out of every 9 days since becoming president, according to a YAF study. With
his two-term legacy on the line, the president is using every
opportunity possible for face time with this age group. As reported by Bloomberg News, Obama is even
using cabinet members and other White House officials’ key notes at
upcoming commencements to further promote the propaganda of
The long road to implementation is coming an end, so it’s an
all-out assault from the administration. From Bloomberg News:  “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.”  Students don’t want to hear about that! College commencement speeches should be about the speaker extolling virtues, wisdom and guidance to the graduates as they prepare for the next chapter of their lives.
Next week, we are coming out with our list of college
commencement speakers. Just like last year, there are way more
liberal speakers than conservatives. Stay tuned for that.
