Elevating President Obama to rock star status, his grassroots lobbying group is out with an offer Thursday that sounds straight out of the Rolling Stones P.R. playbook: Backstage passes to the biggest fan of Obamacare.
Organizing for Action is offering a $1,450 package -- airfare and hotel -- for the Obama supporter who pledges to promote Obamacare the most during the final days to sign up for the insurance program.
“Anyone who pledges to get the word out in the final weeks of health care enrollment will be automatically entered for the chance to meet the president backstage in D.C. That’s two plane tickets and a hotel for you and a guest all on us,” said the email from OFA.
A link to the offer indicates that the group is planning an “OFA Organizing Summit” soon where the president will presumably speak and meet with his fan backstage.Paul Bedard, the Washington Examiner's "Washington Secrets" columnist, can be contacted at email@example.com.
