‘The Thing Is Working’: Obama Launches New Website to Promote Obamacare Legacy

President Obama launched a new website this morning to promote Obamacare, posting a previously unpublished personal letter he received after the death of Sen. Ted Kennedy.

In an effort to highlight the historic nature of the law, the website features a timeline of previous presidents working for health care reform, positing that Obamacare was the product of “nearly a century of work.”

The website also hails the unpopular law as “an improbable piece of legislation with a lot of heart behind it.”

“[I]t will live on as a legacy achievement not just of this administration, but of all those who fought for it for so many years,” the text of the website reads.

The website is part of a lager public relations effort for Obamacare, as a key provision of the law is currently under consideration by the Supreme Court.

It is also the answer to the news media, which Obama believes hasn’t done a good enough job telling the positive stories behind the law.

During his press conference in Germany yesterday after the G7 Summit, Obama expressed his frustration with the negative coverage of the law.

“What’s more, the thing is working,” he said. “I mean, part of what’s bizarre about this whole thing is we haven’t had a lot of conversation about the horrors of Obamacare because none of them come to pass.”

The website includes 36 personal stories of Americans who say they were helped by the law and encourages website users to explore health care data in their state.

In June, health insurers signaled that premium rates for the 2015 would rise significantly — estimating increased rates of at least 10 percent in 37 states.
