TV Shows Will Soon Be Weaving Obamacare Into Plotlines
by Josh Feldman | 8:02 pm, November 4th, 2013

Young people are key for the Affordable Care Act to work, and as a result of a half-million-dollar grant by the California Endowment, TV shows regularly consumed by these young people will soon be weaving Obamacare into plotlines in order to get more of them enrolled in the health care program.

If you’ve ever watched Modern Family or New Girl and thought, “Gee, if only I was learning about the benefits of a complex federal program during this, it would be so much better,” you’re in luck!

    The 18-month grant, to the Lear Center’s Hollywood Health & Society program, will be used for briefings with staff from television shows and to track health overhaul-related depictions on prime-time and Spanish-language television.

    Since the grant money was provided so recently, no plot lines involving health care have been written…

    For those who could benefit from coverage, “we want them to get the facts. We don’t believe the government alone can break through with those facts,” said David Zingale, a California Endowment senior vice president.

Though based on how two TV shows have already addressed the health care law, they may not get so lucky.

But regardless, you can look forward to seeing the characters of some of your favorite TV shows touting the virtues of Obamacare sometime soon. However, the White House should really hope it doesn’t get the House of Cards treatment.

Q: What happens to a nation led by an angry, shallow narcissist who inflames group resentments, centralizes and augments his own executive power, and is willingly abetted by propaganda campaigns on the part of national cultural institutions and the communications media?

A: It invades Poland.
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.
