What the Obama disciples will be doing on the holidays: don’t be surprised if you find yourself inundated at Thanksgiving by leftist turkeys. Stay away from the giblet gravy.
Here are some bullet point questions and tips for Obamaholics on ObamaCare. (ie… probe family members early and often) Here are the tips for talking to family members or friends, from the OFA website:
Start by asking: “Have you thought about signing up for health insurance on the new marketplace?” Offer to walk them through it: “Would you like to take some time with me to sign up right now?” Ask them to make a plan, and commit to it: “When do you plan on signing up?” Don’t forget to follow up: “Have you signed up yet?” What’s Important to Communicate:
· Being covered helps you stay healthy and protects you in an emergency. · You can find a plan that fits your budget—financial assistance is available for those who qualify. · You get to choose the plan that’s right for you. · All the health insurance plans on the new marketplace provide free preventive care—including routine checkups, vaccinations and screenings. · You can’t be denied insurance because of a preexisting condition, and lifetime limits are now banned, so your insurance will be there when you need it. · For your coverage to start January 1, you’ll need to sign up by December 15. · Open enrollment for plans in the marketplace is now through March, but getting started sooner is better.

THINK ABOUT HOW YOU’LL BRING IT UP

Be persistent, but keep it positive: Tell them you care about their health, and focus on the benefits that come from knowing that you have health insurance.
