The White House appears to be getting down and dirty in an effort to convince members in one of its major constituencies — the activist homosexual community — to sign up for ObamaCare. Last September the White House partnered in a campaign called Out2Enroll, which organizers describe as “a campaign to inform lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) communities about new coverage options available through the Affordable Care Act and to encourage LGBT individuals to enroll in coverage.”
The Obama administration is growing increasingly concerned because not enough homosexuals are signing up for ObamaCare and time is running out for them to make the deadline to enroll for “coverage” beginning January 1. The Washington Post noted that a “disproportionate number of LGBT Americans are uninsured and qualify for federal premium subsidies,” which is why the White House has stepped up its efforts with groups like the Center for American Progress, the Sellers Dorsey Foundation, and the Federal Agencies Project to cajole gays, lesbians, transvestites, and others under the LGBT umbrella to get enrolled in the socialized healthcare scheme.
A September White House press release targeting homosexuals emphasized that federal healthcare law “prevents health insurance companies from charging anyone a higher premium just because they happen to be lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. It also prevents insurers from raising rates or denying coverage because of a pre-existing condition like HIV/AIDS, cancer, or mental health concerns.”
In the launch of its campaign in September with the White House, Out2Enroll claimed that some 34 percent of low-income homosexuals are uninsured, and a “majority of these individuals are not aware of the new coverage options that will be available starting October 1 of this year.”
Over the past couple of months, however, the homosexual community, like other Americans, has balked at the thought of imprisoning their healthcare future under Obama's socialized monstrosity, so just before Christmas Out2Enroll and the White House instituted stage two of their marketing campaign to suck in Obama's LGBT constituency.
On December 17 the White House posted a press release that included an “infographic” designed to convince homosexuals who have not signed up for ObamaCare why they should. Among the reasons the White House gave were:
• By law health insurance “purchased through the [government controlled] Marketplace can't discriminate based on sexual orientation or gender identity.”
• “You can't be charged a higher premium just because you're lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender.”
• Homosexuals supposedly can't be denied coverage “because of pre-existing conditions like HIV/AIDS.”
• Nor, supposedly, will there be any “lifetime limits on coverage for people with chronic diseases like AIDS.”
