Feminist Magazine Cosmopolitan to Push Obamacare on Readers

-By Warner Todd Huston

Barack Obama has been reaching out to all sorts of non-government partners in a renewed effort to push his Obamacare law. The President’s latest Obamacare-pushing partner will be the famed women’s magazine Cosmopolitan.

In its fall issues, Cosmo will begin to publish multiple feature articles extolling the virtues of Obamacare, will inform readers on how to sign up and will celebrate the many benefits they might realize by accepting the all-encompassing law.

The magazine’s editor-in-chief, Joanna Coles, says that she feels her role as Obamacare flack is pivotal. “This stuff is really important. It’s life-changing for a lot of people.”

Lifesitenews.com also reports that the Cosmo website and social media sites will also be infused with Obamacare propaganda.

The women’s magazine is not alone. The President has been reaching out to many forms of entertainment enlisting them as Obamacare propagandists.

On June 24 reports surfaced that Obama’s administration has cajoled the National Football League into becoming an Obamacare flack.

Only days before that the National Basketball League also announced it was going to become a press agent for Obamacare.

Additionally, the President is enlisting the aide of a long list of Hollywood celebrities to fan out from Tinsel Town to become Obamacare evangelists.

But not everyone has been receptive to Obama’s entreaties. Earlier in May, Obama’s Secretary of Health and Human Services, Kathleen Sebelius, came under fire for attempting to intimidate private business into donating money to help her implement Obamacare.
