“Crossing a Line”

Filed under: Health Care,Obama — DRJ @ 5:17 pm

[Guest post by DRJ]

The Obama Administration is reportedly spamming federal workers and telling them to support ObamaCare, or else:

“The White House Office of Health Reform Director Nancy-Ann DeParle has been feverishly sending out unsolicited email messages to federal employees in an effort to build support for President Barack Obama’s health reform package over the last several weeks.

DeParle’s unsolicited emails have been regularly coming to some federal employees’ official government email inboxes for weeks without permission or request, causing some federal employees to feel threatened by the overt political language.”

What’s next — Immigration reform and “you’re all racists if you don’t support amnesty” emails?

  4. wait until they pass amnesty, and another 20 million people who qualify for all the credits, exemptions, etc in Obamacare get added to the system: now how fast will we go completely broke?

  6. Hm… Nancy-AnnDe Parle:

    DeParle is in a position to remake how the health industry doles out money. In an administration with high ethical standards, DeParle will have to go out of her way to avoid any semblance of favoritism, especially towards industries or companies she’s made money from in the past.

  7. One of the unions most concerned about the bill and its new tax on “Cadillac” health plans has been AFSCME, the federal employees union. So that might be part of what’s going on here – having the workers pressure their union reps to back it.

  8. […] the last time American voters can converge on DC to make their voices heard by Congress before Pelosi and her statist thugs force through a “DemonPass” health care vote this Sunday, the fifth Lenten Sunday […]

    This is another example of the Chicago way. Work for the city, campaign for Hizzoner.

    Thugs, every one of them.

  11. The slimey POTUS has asked that all emails with lies about the Death bill be forwarded to the .Gov snitch site. Everyone should obey and forward his lying emails back to him.

  13. The Chicago Way – 2010.

    Open the e-mail and you get the message from Guido and Tony – ‘Nice computer you got there. Be a shame if anything happened to it. I’m sure with your support our local purple shirted partners will keep everything safe.”

  14. An obvious Hatch Act violation; but, it’s by a Dem, so “no harm – no foul”.

  15. Dateline Washington D.C.June 2010:

    In a surprise news conference, citing statistics that show that millions of Americans lack access to daily newspapers, today President Obama, surrounded by Congressional Democrats, signed into law a mandate for all Americans to subscribe to the New York Times.

    ”While it is true that this bill was passed in secrecy yesterday by Congressional Democrats, in the interests of transparency the bill was posted on the internet this morning, and Congressional Republicans briefed on the bill this afternoon”, announced President Obama as he signed the bill into law.

  16. Can you imagine the screeching and rending of clothing if Bush would have pulled this for, say, SS reform in 2005? Or Iraq in 2003?

    This is all of one piece. They think that government and agenda are one and the same.

    They have no shame, no shame at all.

  17. DRJ,
    I am federal employee (VA RN) and I am not aware of any spamming request/exhorting me that I must to anything political. While I am sure there are upper levels of mid managment somewhere in the Federal system doing “Stupid stuff” like spamming for politcal purposes the VA seems to try and stay out of the fray.
    Contrary to popular belief there are those of us in Federal Service who do have reasoning facilities and a mind of our own, you identify us as the cars in the parking lot WITHOUT the Obama stickers on our cars….

  18. I am a contractor in an agency and I have a .gov email. I haven’t seen anything of this nature.

    I WOULD make a stink though. :)

    I love doing that. Kinda sorta hope I do see one.

    Social Security privatization was stopped by the democrats. IIRC Bush and the GOP were too scared to even pen a bill.
