On Monday, Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius announced that she would be working with the National Football League to have the NFL push coverage of Obamacare. This report follows in the wake of reports last week that Sebelius would be working with the National Basketball Association. Sebelius explained that the NFL is “very actively and enthusiastically engaged” in a conversation about how to popularize Obamacare. “We’re having active discussions right now with a variety of sports affiliates,” she said.
Both the NFL and the NBA are reportedly not-for-profit entities. The HHS is already under fire for soliciting private non-profits to push Obamacare.
