The hosts of Fox & Friends apparently have yet to realize what it took Congressional Republicans an unfortunate and costly government shutdown to learn: the fight over Obamacare is done with.
On Thursday morning, hosts of Stephen Colbert’s favorite news chat show expressed their shock and outrage that a more-or-less apolitical entity like the Baltimore Ravens would take $130,000 (of American-taxpayer money, mind you) to “sell Obamacare to the fans of football.”
I understand that the Affordable Care Act continues to be a political wedge, polarizing lawmakers and the electorate, but let’s try our best to remember that the Ravens aren’t pushing Obamacare the embattled healthcare bill. They’re informing Marylanders about Obamacare the imminent healthcare reality.
Is it really all that partisan for a football team to make its fans aware of new health-coverage options?
