ObamaCare = ObamaScared To Talk About

RNC Communications - March 21, 2012

The Hill: “Obama Will Not Mark The Two-Year Anniversary Of His Signing Of The Healthcare Law.” “President Obama will not mark the two-year anniversary of his signing of the healthcare law — which takes place days before the Supreme Court offers a decision on the constitutionality of his signature legislative achievement. Senior administration officials said on Tuesday that Obama will not be offering a vigorous public defense of the law, holding events or even making public remarks in the lead-up to the Supreme Court case.” (Amie Parnes, “Obama Will Avoid Health Care Defense During Court Review,” The Hill’s Health Watch,” 3/21/12)

CNN’s Lisa Desjardins: “ICYMI: WH officials tells CNN that President Obama has *no* plans to mark the two-yr anniversary of his health care law passing.” (Lisa Desjardins, Twitter Feed, 3/19/12)

Fox News’ Ed Henry: “It's one big deal of an anniversary, but apparently President Obama will not be celebrating.” (Ed Henry, “Health care anniversary: Not Such A Big 'Bleeping' Deal?”Fox News, 3/19/12)

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney: The White House Is Not Interested In Anniversaries. CARNEY: “I didn't make any announcement one way or the other about what the President's schedule will hold on this issue, but we are focused on implementing the bill, not on discussing anniversaries, particularly -- although I'm sure others will want to discuss this.” (Jay Carney, Remarks At White House Briefing, Washington, D.C., 3/19/12)

  • The Anniversary Is A “Faux Milestone” According To Obama Officials. “Likewise, Obama is not expected to hold an event around the two-year anniversary on Friday, said officials who labeled it a faux milestone and off the radar of most Americans.” (Amie Parnes, “Obama Will Avoid Health Care Defense During Court Review,” The Hill’s Health Watch,” 3/21/12)

Although Obama Plans To Skip The Anniversary, The White House Said Obama Speaks About ObamaCare “On Occasion.” ASSOCIATED PRESS’S BEN FELLER: “Friday I believe is the anniversary of the healthcare law. And I’m wondering if we should expect to hear from the president on that milestone which of course comes right before the Supreme Court arguments or would he just as soon not make a public statement about the health care law and let outside groups, the campaign and others do the politicking around that issue.” WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY JAY CARNEY: “The president does speak about health care on occasion and will continue to do that. But he’s focused on a forward agenda now.” (Jay Carney, Remarks At White House Briefing, Washington, D.C., 3/19/12)
