WTF? Andy Griffith's ObamaCare Propaganda Ad Was Paid For By You, The Taxpayer

How is this even close to legal?

We're now being forced to pay for propaganda against our interests?

Yet in a sick deal with the Obama administration, Griffith shatters his credibility, promising all roses with a health-care law that even Barney Fife could tell you is a disaster in the making.

"This year, like always, we'll have our guaranteed benefits," Griffith says in the gauzy ad, as if today's seniors are America's last generation.

"And with the new health-care law, more good things are coming. Free checkups, lower prescription costs. and better ways to protect us and Medicare from fraud."

Yeah, as if the real problem with today's economy is that people aren't paying enough in taxes and the government has too much money on its hands.

I'm sure it's an "informative" ad, that's how it's being sold; that it's a "public service," telling people about their exciting new benefits (which supposedly haven't changed).

But it's not. ObamaCare isn't even kicking in yet -- this is to sell the program to voters for the midterms, not inform people of the "benefits" they don't even have yet.
