What’s In a Name?Posted: October 3, 2013 Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, Propaganda Leave a comment
Some of you may have seen this already. Even taking into account the randomness of the survey and the impact of editing, it still paints the power of propaganda.
On Jimmy Kimmel’s show the other night the “man in the street” interviewer asked people which they preferred — The Affordable Care Act or Obamacare? The overwhelming choice was The Affordable Care Act. We know that they are the same, but apparently many people do not.
When the interviewer asked about specific provisions of Obamacare — such as allowing children to stay on their parents policy until age 26, no restrictions for previous conditions, etc. — the response was always positive, even as they continued to say that they did not like Obamacare.
