That's what we've been hearing from the other side of the aisle. But now HHS Sec. Sebelius is seeking Female Bloggers to Raise Awareness regarding ObamaCare's Insurance Exchanges.
Well, the polls are indicating that bloggers of both sexes are Already aware of ObamaCare's Insurance Exchanges and holding their noses at the idea of being forced into them.
Sebelius Wants Female Bloggers To Raise Insurance Exchange Awareness
Multipronged PR campaign aims to slash number of uninsured Americans
The Obama administration wants to tap the power of the women's blogosphere to raise knowledge of--and drum up support for--the new health insurance marketplaces launching this fall, the Associated Press reports.
U.S. Department of Health and Human Service Secretary Kathleen Sebelius made the administration's pitch at the annual BlogHer conference in Chicago this weekend.
"I bet you more people could tell you the name of the new prince of England than could tell you that the health market opens Oct. 1," she said at the conference, the AP reports.
Sebelius told the audience of women bloggers in Chicago that uninsured Americans who know little about the healthcare law and how it will affect them want information from people they trust, according to the AP.
"One of the most trusted voices is mothers," Sebelius said at the conference. "We're trying to get a lot of information into women's hands because women often purchase the healthcare for their family ... With adult children they can be a very powerful and compelling voice."
The administration also has been recruiting celebrities and librarians to spread the word about new health insurance options, and is funding a $41 million national public-relations campaign managed by the PR firm Weber Shandwick, the article notes.
The feds also are issuing $684 million in grants to fund state-managed outreach programs, the AP notes. States don't have to accept the money, though. Texas, the state with the highest rate of uninsured residents, planned no outreach to educate residents about the new insurance marketplace.

NOW let's see how the Obama White House treats the Females working for it.
Obama's War On Women: Records ShowWhite House Pays Women On Average $11,000 LESS Than Men.
And yet conservatives “war on women” consists of only opposing Obama’s decision to force the Catholic church to violate its religious beliefs.
Via WFB’s Andrew Stiles:
Female employees in the Obama White House make considerably less than their male colleagues, records show.You guys think the sheeple out there are dumb enough to buy into the Dems 'War On Women' rhetoric?
According to the 2011 annual report on White House staff, female employees earned a median annual salary of $60,000, which was about 18 percent less than the median salary for male employees ($71,000).
The Obama campaign on Wednesday lashed out at presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney for his failure to immediately endorse the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Restoration Act, a controversial law enacted in 2009 that made it easier to file discrimination lawsuits.
“Paycheck discrimination hurts families who lose out on badly needed income,” he said in a July 2010 statement. “And with so many families depending on women’s wages, it hurts the American economy as a whole.”
Thank You Mr Stiles and Zip.
