White House and allies set to build up health law

New York Times, June 7, 2010

President Obama and his allies, concerned about deep skepticism over his landmark healthcare overhaul, are orchestrating a campaign to sell the public on the law, the New York Times reports. The campaign includes a new tax-exempt group that will spend millions of dollars on advertising to respond to attacks on the measure and Democrats who voted for it. This week, President Obama travels to Wheaton, MD, to conduct a nationally televised question-and-answer session with older citizens to trumpet a $250 rebate checks to help Medicare beneficiaries pay for prescription drugs.
