Obamacare news roundup

I really like the way Paul Ryan frames this:
“Do they really want to defend a position to let big-government contractors off the hook, but not a family of four living in Ohio?” Ryan says. ”Do they want to let big banks off the hook for Obamacare, but not the single parent trying to make ends meet? Good luck defending that position.”
How will Obamacare be promoted? For starters, at bourbon festivals and (possibly) on porta-potties. Heritage had some fun with all the different ways supporters of the act are trying to promote it, asking: "No word yet on whether Senator Max Baucus (D-MT) has suggested state exchanges partner with Amtrak, given his recent comments about the state of Obamacare implementation."

Five other odd promotions.

Another union is complaining of how Obamacare will affect its members. Frankly, if you bought the line about being able to keep your insurance and doctor if you like them -- not to mention some of candidate Obama's other promises -- it's tough to feel too sorry for you.

A British company that just received a $1.2 billion contract from the U.S. government is "under investigation by British authorities for overbilling government contracts."

How will Obamacare affect your dental coverage?

Virginia health centers will get $2.5 million in federal taxpayer money to promote the act.

Michael Cannon writes: "For once, Republicans have the advantage on health care." Oregon gets...creative to encourage people to sign up.

"By postponing the employer mandate, Obama has given millions of Americans the legal standing to sue."

The editors of National Review's take on how Republicans should proceed.
Many are worried California is "falling short in ensuring that the people hired as counselors are adequately screened and monitored." The state has hired 21,000 to work as "enrollment counselors."
