Librarians Being Recruited to Push Obamacare

By    |   Sunday, 30 June 2013 08:20 PM EDT

First it was the brawn of the NFL. Now, the government is turning to the brains of America's public libraries to promote President Barack Obama's health care law, Fox News reports.

While the National Football League has made no commitment to urge the public to sign up for Obamacare after the White House lobbied and Republicans sent the league a letter urging against it, the nation's librarians seem more amenable.

Editor's Note: Should ObamaCare Be Repealed? Vote in Urgent National Poll

Kicking off its annual conference Sunday in Chicago, the American Library Association heard a 10-minute video address from President Obama, who is traveling in Africa. Up to 17,000 libraries are expected to participate, and are seen as a vital link to residents in conservative states which are not doing much to promote the implementation of the Affordable Care Act.

The libraries are expected to use their public computers in various ways to communicate the message. Some will link their home pages to HealthCare.gov, some will embed a widget on their sites and some may set aside certain computers for those seeking to find health coverage, or extend time limits on the computers.
