Because all the previous efforts have worked so well.
The White House will court basketball fans in a March Madness-themed campaign to increase ObamaCare enrollment ahead of a March 31st deadline.
The administration on Monday will release its ”16 Sweetest Reasons to Get Covered” bracket listing the top reasons to get health insurance, according to a White House official. Each day, the bracket will be updated based on votes from online users.
Lame. So very lame.
The official said the effort is part ongoing attempts to “reach young consumers where they are.”
More than 4.2 million people have enrolled in ObamaCare as of March 1, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) said last week. The number of 18- to 34-year-olds stands at 25 percent, HHS added.
The March Madness campaignwill include online videos with athletes and coaches and social media blitzes, the official said.
For example, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius will be tweeting about the NCAA basketball tournament, especially her home-state Kansas Jayhawks.
Can’t we just be left alone to enjoy the tournament without the omnipresent Obama?
