Tanya’s Thoughts: It’s shameful that the Republicans are trying to confuse people about what Obamacare is, instead of letting people do their own research. It begs the question: What are Republicans so afraid of? Are they afraid Obamacare will actually work? Are they afraid that this new health care system might bring society a small step closer to social equality?
California Republicans are desperate and shameless. In the past two weeks, GOP Assembly members have sent mailings out on what appears to be the state’s dime to their constituents about health insurance. Only, they don’t direct those people to CoveredCA.com to sign up. Instead, they send them to their own astroturf version with the url CoveringHealthCareCA.com.
On their version, there are links to negative articles and twisted messages intended to sour people on signing up for health insurance before they ever land at the official health exchange site.
