NBC News to Air Special Series on Obamacare

Comments Off on NBC News to Air Special Series on Obamacare

NBC News announced Friday that it will present a special series of programs and reports next week intended to “help Americans get the most out of the Affordable Care Act,” according to a press release.

 

Timed to coincide with the rollout of new insurance exchanges, “Ready or Not, the New Healthcare Law” begins airing Monday, Sept. 30. The series will appear on such network mainstays as “NBC Nightly News” and “Today,” as well as on social media and other digital outlets.

 

The programs will provide interactive tools “to help shed light on what the healthcare act means for [consumers] and explain how to enroll” in the new marketplaces opening on Oct. 1, according to the statement. Additionally, the series will include reporting on the Obama administration’s messaging, primary-care physician shortages, changes to emergency rooms and other topics related to the law’s rollout.

 

Also on Monday, a new poll that details public opinion and awareness about the law will be released. In addition, “NBC Nightly News” will air an interview with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, who has long been at the forefront of managing and selling the ACA to the public.

 

Dr. Nancy Snyderman, NBC’s chief medical correspondent, will figure centrally in the programming. “The sweeping federal law is confusing,” she said in the press release. “We will clarify parts of the law, explain how states differ and tackle many of the challenges associated with it. We are committed to answering questions and serving as a guide as this legislation is implemented.”

 

NBC News did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Obama Declares November National Muslim Appreciation Month

1 Comment

Well Snopes is now saying this is a false story as of 3 hours
a go.

President Barack Obama held a press conference to announce that he is declaring the month of November ‘National Muslim Appreciation Month’.

“The Muslim community deserves our full acceptance and respect,” Obama told reporters. “We have killed millions of Muslims overseas since the September 11th attacks. They are not all bad. In fact most of them are good. So from now on, November will be a month to celebrate the Muslim community, the Sunnah and the Quran.”

Khaled Matei who is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood‘s Freedom and Justice Party told CNN he is pleased with Obama and his actions. “I spoke with President Obama by telephone yesterday and personally thanked him for what he is doing for the Muslim community,” Matei said. “This is definitely a step in the right direction I explained to him. Praise Allah.”

Obama informed reporters about his future plans for helping Muslims around the world. “I will be working with Congress in making it easier for Muslims to earn a Green Card and achieve American citizenship,” Obama said. “Currently as it stands, obtaining a Visa or Green Card for a Muslim is very difficult. There are too many background checks in place and I plan to fix that.” Obama continued, “Muslims are hardworking people who are just looking to live the American Dream like the rest of us. Mr. Matei of the Muslim Brotherhood assured me they want to come to this country to help us, not harm us.”

Obama finished the press conference by explaining to reporters how happy he is with America. “Folks, there is no way we could have had a ‘National Muslim Appreciation Month’ 20 years ago. That really says a lot about the growth and progress of this great country.”

‘National Muslim Appreciation Month’ begins November 1st and will end at midnight on November 30th. For any questions or comments please contact the 24-hour National Muslim Appreciation Hotline at (785) 273-0325.

Capping a dramatic and chaotic week on Capitol Hill, the Senate on Friday approved a critical budget bill that would fund the government past Sept. 30 — but only after Democrats succeeded in stripping a Republican-backed provision to defund ObamaCare.

The final vote was 54-44.

The bill now returns to the House, and is seen by some lawmakers as a sort of legislative hot potato. If the two chambers cannot agree on a final bill by midnight on Monday, then the government will shut down. Neither side wants to be left holding the bill if that happens.

House Republicans are under heavy pressure, now, from fellow conservatives to stand by their demand that ObamaCare be defunded, or least delayed.

House Speaker John Boehner already indicated that he will not accept the Senate-passed bill in its current form. The House is expected to take up the legislation starting on Saturday.

Earlier Friday, Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid narrowly won approval to restore funding for ObamaCare. The 54-44 vote fell along party lines.

That was after the Senate voted 79-19 on the initial version of the bill, which in its original form would keep the government open while defunding ObamaCare. Several Republicans joined Democrats in voting “yes” on that vote, ignoring appeals by Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and other conservatives to stall the vote.
