Taxpayers Paying Ravens $130K to Promote Obamacare

Taxpayers Paying Ravens $130K to Promote Obamacare

Taxpayers are paying the Baltimore Ravens, the defending Super Bowl champions, $130,000 to promote Obamacare in Maryland. 

Judicial Watch, which has held Republicans and Democrats to account, obtained documents that detailed the deal, which was secured on September 9 between the Ravens and Maryland health officials.

In September, the Baltimore Ravens announced they would help the Maryland Health Connection, which is the state’s Obamacare exchange, after the Obama administration failed to strike deals with professional sports leagues like the NFL and the NBA to promote Obamacare. 

After that announcement, Judicial Watch filed a Maryland Public Information Act request for details, and the organization discovered a “Sponsorship Agreement” between the Maryland Health Connection and the Ravens.

According to Judicial Watch, Maryland agreed to pay the Ravens “$130,000 to push Obamacare on television, radio, the team’s official website, its newsletter and in social media. This includes the Ravens Report Show on cable TV and a number of pre and post-game radio segments as well as Facebook and Twitter plugs.”
