What do you talk about with your family and friends when you gather for Thanksgiving dinner? Whatever it is, I’ll bet the last thing you want to talk about is Obamacare, especially if it means being lectured by the aging hippy or snot-nosed kid at the table. But that’s the scene Obama would like to see playing out in dining rooms across America, and he doesn’t want it to be limited to Thanksgiving. He’d like to ruin all of your holidays!
President Barack Obama’s deputies at Organizing for Action are urging supporters to give an Obamacare pitch to their relatives during the most iconic of American family and religious events.
“Take advantage of downtime after meals or between holiday activities to start your talk,” says OFA’s marketing script, titled “Health Care for the Holidays.”
At Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners, “people will be under the “misconception that the government-designed health-payment plans are too expensive,” says the presidential pitch, which was emailed out on Nov. 23.
“Tell them: There are a variety of plans available in the new health insurance marketplace, so you can pick one that fits your budget. There’s also financial assistance available based on how much you make,” says OFA’s script.
