Reporting from Washington— Giving a boost to the new healthcare law, a coalition of hospitals, insurers, drug makers and consumer advocates is joining a multimillion-dollar campaign to get Americans signed up for health insurance starting in 2014.

The new nonprofit group, called Enroll America, plans a state-by-state effort to publicize the expanded availability of health coverage and to help state leaders put in place procedures to simplify enrollment.

The law signed by President Obama last year requires most Americans to get insurance starting in 2014. At the same time, the law bans insurers from denying coverage to those who are sick and provides hundreds of millions of dollars in government subsidies to help low- and middle-income Americans purchase insurance.

The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office has estimated that an additional 32 million Americans will get insurance by 2019.

But getting people to sign up in 21/2 years remains one of the major challenges confronting those working to implement the law.

"We need to develop a culture of coverage," said Paul Markovich, chief operating officer of Blue Shield of California, one of Enroll America's leading members.

That prompted Families USA, an influential consumer group and key backer of the law, to reach out to healthcare industry leaders, many of whom will probably profit from the coverage expansion.

Wednesday, the coalition announced that 42 companies and organizations had signed on to the effort, including several industry leaders such as Aetna, Express Scripts and Teva Pharmaceuticals.

Others in the coalition include: AARP, the Catholic Health Assn. of the United States, Kaiser Permanente, the American Nurses Assn. and the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network.

"Ensuring that people have the health coverage they need will provide clear benefits, including better health, greater productivity and reduced cost burden on private businesses," said Rich Umbdenstock, president of the American Hospital Assn., another leading member.

Enroll America officials said they had raised more than $6 million, including $1.5 million from the insurance industry, $2.5 million from the pharmaceutical industry, $1.3 million from foundations and $825,000 from hospitals.

Rachel Klein, the group's executive director, said Enroll America was seeking more than $10 million more to move ahead with its campaign.




The real reason for the "SIGN UP CAMPAIGN" as stated by Rush:

RUSH: Los Angeles Times: "Enroll America, a new nonprofit group, plans to publicize the expanded availability of health coverage under the new federal healthcare law and to help states make enrollment easier. Giving a boost to the new healthcare law, a coalition of hospitals, insurers, drug makers and consumer advocates is joining a multimillion-dollar campaign to get Americans signed up for health insurance starting in 2014. The new nonprofit group, called Enroll America, plans a state-by-state effort to publicize the expanded availability of health coverage and to help state leaders put in place procedures to simplify enrollment." So you have an "activist group" trying to enroll people in government-run health care while another area of government-run health care is going belly up and leaving people uninsured.

So what do we have here? Just like with food stamps and public housing and welfare, the usual suspects are doing everything they can to get more people hooked on government. And there's nothing new about this group. Families USA is a Democrat front group that's been around since 1981, and that's the umbrella here for Enroll America. Families USA was the public relations team for Hillary Care, and their intention is to get as many people as possible dependent on government provided health insurance as soon as they can in order to make it impossible to repeal. That's what this is all about.

Enroll America is trying to get as many people signed up now. They don't want to wait for 2014, and they really don't care about Obama. They just want as many people dependent on government for health care as soon as they can, because they know that there will be a serious effort to repeal this. And the more people who are enrolled or getting insurance via the government, the harder they know it's gonna be to repeal it. (interruption) Do what? Well, I don't know if AARP is in bed with them or not. But Families USA partnering with the Obama administration to rehabilitate the image of Obamacare with a nationwide PR campaign. It's just like they did with Hillary Care.

So you see Obama on stage waving his bill around, understand that his allies are doing things that you don't see to force people into government-run health care or to trick them into enrolling into government-run health care because Obama knows nobody wants this. The Democrats know nobody wants this. They're approaching vulnerable people that have nowhere else to go, enrolling them, lying to them about how cheap the coverage is gonna be and how great the care is gonna be, all for the purposes of making it tough to repeal this.

Buying votes. And those that support that kind of buying of votes campaign about lobbyists and corporate donors. They're the flip side of the same coin.

I am an atheist and I am praying we get this power-hungry, narcissistic, near-communist out of office while it is still possible to do so.
