Sebelius Dismisses Conservative Campaign Encouraging Young People Not To Enroll in Obamacare

WASHINGTON -- As the Obama administration ramps up its efforts to educate the public about enrolling in Obamacare, conservative groups are waging a campaign of their own, urging people not to sign up.

FreedomWorks has made mock Obamacare "draft cards" (no such card really exists), telling young people to burn them and pledge not to purchase health care coverage under the Affordable Care Act. A conservative radio host has launched a "Refuse to Enroll" campaign, with the intent of making it "difficult for the law to function as its proponents want it to."

In a call with reporters on Monday, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius dismissed the conservative counter-campaign, saying it is unfortunate and would ultimately hurt young people.

    "As the Obama administration ramps up its efforts to educate the public about enrolling in Obamacare"...

    Uh, don't you mean 'spread propaganda'?
    This is "education" the way income taxes are "voluntary".
