Ezekiel Emanuel, brother of former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, told Fox News Sundaythat the administration has not given Obamacare a proper promotional push.
"No one has launched a big PR campaign to get these people signed up because of the problems with the federal website," he said." "We are about to launch a big PR campaign, and that, I think, is going to persuade a lot of people to sign up."
There has been considerable promotional spending connected to Obamacare in recent months including $12 million in Obamacare promotional ads which began airing Sept. 30, a $44 million contract with public relations firm Weber Shandwick to promote Obamacare and a $20 million contract awarded to public relations firm Porter Novelli to launch an Obamacare multimedia campaign.
