The Obama administration thinks Hollywood can do much more to promote its signature health care reform.
Stars from Lady Gaga to Scandal’s Kerry Washington have been promoting ObamaCare via social media. The humor site Funny or Die has produced a series of videos shilling for the reform, including one featuring President Barack Obama himself.
That’s simply not enough, says Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett. Now, she wants Hollywood screenwriters to start dropping ObamaCare references into their scripts–assuming said shout outs will be positive, of course. Is there any doubt some scribes will gleefully abide by her wishes?
Jarrett told the hosts of PopSugar.com that she is currently in L.A. to instruct screenwriters they, too, must do their part to promote ObamaCare.
That’s part of why I’m in L.A. I’m meeting with writers of various TV shows and movies to try to get it into the scripts.” When Jarrett says “it into the scripts,” she’s referring to getting references to Obamacare, the president’s signature legislation, into the scripts of TV shows and movies.
Meanwhile, in the real world, approval for ObamaCare continues to tank as Americans learn more about a reform sold with a bundle of lies by the administration and a media unwilling to vet said reform.
