Wonderful: Taxpayers are funding a new round of Obamacare propaganda

This propaganda video ad targets seniors. Barack Obama significantly underperformed in 2008 with white seniors and, in spite of AARP's betrayal, most seniors are opposed to Obamacare. Does that make the above video a taxpayer-funded political ad?
(LA Times) — The Obama administration is kicking off a nationwide ad campaign urging seniors to take advantage of free preventive services such as cancer screenings made possible in Medicare by the new healthcare law.

The campaign — featuring television and radio ads in English and Spanish — comes on the heels of a new report showing that less than one in six Medicare beneficiaries have taken advantage of the new benefit since President Obama signed the law last year.

The new law includes numerous provisions to encourage more preventive care, which many health experts believe is critical to controlling long-term health costs.
