WebMD Has Received $14 Million To Promote ObamaCare

Well, So much for WebMD.
Awesome. Now when people go to check if they’re dying or not on WebMD, they’ll be hit with Obamacare propaganda for a long time to come.
WebMD has received nearly $14 million to promote Obamacare, as part of a government initiative designed to get Americans to turn to “official information” on the health care law.
The contract amount is much higher than was previously known, new documents revealed on Tuesday.
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) released a “limited source justification” to extend WebMD’s contract through September 2015. The government has obligated a total of $13,932,914 for the “Affordable Care Act (ACA) and Health Care Priorities Educational Initiative” thus far.
The initiative gives funding to the health website WebMD to provide information to doctors and consumers about the “benefits” of the law.
“The Affordable Care Act (ACA) was signed into law on March 23, 2010,” the contract document states. “As a result, the Act requires that CMS educate consumers about the benefits now available through that legislation.”

Thank You Washington Free Beacon and Mr. Stone.
