Side Effects: Obamacare the Television Ad

Posted By Brandon Stewart On March 30, 2010 @ 11:30 am In Obamacare | Comments Disabled

Facing an American public that hates their new health care law, the Obama administration and their union/corporatist allies are planning a multi-million dollar television ad campaign [1] to sell the benefits of Obamacare. While Food and Drug Administration regulations [2] require all advertising for prescription drug to “present side effect information in a manner similar to that used for the benefit information,” the Obama administration faces no such hurdle when making their pitch. But if it did, this [3] is what a typical pro-Obamacare ad would look like.

As we announced in today’s Morning Bell [4], we are launching a new Foundry feature, titled “Side Effects” [5]. In this space, we will be updating you about all consequences of Obamacare, as a way of highlighting the importance of its eventual repeal.
