Republicans criticize Obama administration brochure on healthcare overhaul

Washington Post, May 28, 2010

The secretary of health and human services says the government has an obligation to spread the word about the new healthcare law. To that end, the department spent millions of dollars printing a glossy brochure and mailing it this week to 40 million Medicare beneficiaries detailing what Secretary Kathleen Sebelius called "the facts." But Republicans say the brochure is a "gross misuse of taxpayer funds to provide biased information for political purposes," the Washington Post reports.
