Taxpayer Money Will Promote Obamacare in Virginia

Perhaps a bit...inappropriate


RICHMOND — Virginia health centers will receive 22 federal grants totaling more than $2.5 million to enroll clients in Obamacare, part of a $150 million national campaign.

The commonwealth has 24 health centers with 143 sites that served 283,906 patients last year, 39.35 percent of them uninsured, according to the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration.

"With their Outreach and Enrollment funding, the (Virginia) health centers expect to hire 51 additional workers, who will assist 29,313 people with enrollment into affordable health insurance coverage," the division of the Department of Health and Human Services stated in a news release.
