All the cool kids are doing it.
Via Big Government:
The Departments of Health and Human Services and Education are now acting as outlets for the Obama re-election campaign. In a press announcement released yesterday, HHS stated that HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and Secretary of Education Arne Duncan “are reaching out to campus leaders to remind graduating high school, college and university seniors about their new health insurance options under the Affordable Care Act – the health care law.”
This is obvious propagandizing; under the old health care law, most insurance programs allowed dependent care coverage for people under the age of 21. So why would Sebelius and company be reaching out to high schoolers? The answer: those high schoolers are turning 18, and can therefore vote.
