Breaking: White House Confirms It Used US Taxpayer Dollars to Sell Obamacare!
YOUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK– PAYING FOR OBAMACARE EMAIL SPAM!
Was this one of those shovel ready projects Obama was talking about?
The Obama Administration hired a private communications company to push their socialist health care agenda using taxpayer money!
These are the same emails that the White House originally said they knew nothing about!
White House Spokesman Robert Gibbs denied knowledge of this operation when questioned about it on August 13th.

Yet, the White House had hired a company using taxpayer money to send out the spam emails.
FOX News reported:
The White House hired a private communications company based in Minnesota to distribute mass e-mails, helping to shed light on how some recipients received e-mails in support of President Obama’s health care plan without signing up for them, FOX News has learned.
The company, Govdelivery, describes itself as the world’s leading provider of government-to-citizen communication solutions and says its e-mail service provides a fully-automated on-demand public communication system.
It is still unknown how much taxpayer money the White House provides to Govdelivery for its services.
The revelation comes after the White House acknowledged this week that people were receiving unsolicited e-mails from the administration about health care reform and suggested the problem was with third-party groups that placed the recipients’ names on the distribution list.
Republicans quickly pounced on the news.
“This is yet another ominous chapter in the administration’s rabid campaign to jam its radical health care scheme onto an unwilling public by any means necessary,” Rep. Thaddeus McCotter of Michigan said in a statement.
Several FOX News viewers complained they received these e-mails even though they had never requested any communication from the White House.
On Monday, the White House implemented several new changes to its Web site, apparently aimed at reducing the number of people who receive unsolicited e-mails and at fighting charges that it’s collecting personal information on critics.

We can trust small-potatoes stuff like health care to the government, but when it comes to something as precious as spamming Americans with Obama propaganda, only an efficient market solution will do.
