    Apparently the Obama administration asked the NFL, and other professional sports leagues, to propagandize for Obamacare, however, they declined.

    So why are they doing this? Is it not now the law of the land? Obama did not seem to care that the majority of Americans did not support it when it was passed, and he won again despite it, so why does he now seem concerned that people won't like it?

    It's not like there is any history of massive entitlements ever being taken off the books and they don't seem to need public support to win elections these days with a Congressional approval rating of 9%, so why the concern, especially if it is "good" for America?

    The NFL is not a political organization, and like most other organizations, would rather focus on their own intereses, rather than promoting hot button political issues. Business's do not like controversy

    Why is the Obama administration trying to sell us something that has already be sold to us bill?
