Perfect. Take a bunch of vapid people who live in a fictional fantasy-land to promote an abomination most Americans want no part of.
President Obama met Monday with celebrities who are helping him promote his signature healthcare law ahead of the October 1 launch of state insurance exchanges.
The president dropped by a White House meeting with singer Jennifer Hudson and actress Amy Poehler, as well as representatives for Oprah Winfrey, Alicia Keys, and Bon Jovi, according to CNN.
Other attendees included officials from the Grammy awards and the Funny or Die website, which is a brainchild of actor Will Ferrell and director Adam McKay.
“The President stopped by the meeting to engage artists who expressed an interest in helping to educate the public about the benefits of the health law,” a White House official told CNN. “The reach of these national stars spreads beyond the beltway to fans of their television shows, movies, and music – and the power of these artists to speak through social media is especially critical.”The Washington Post reported that the meeting was led by senior adviser Valerie Jarrett.
The administration is planning a massive blitz ahead of the opening of the exchanges, where individuals who are currently without coverage can buy subsidized insurance.
