A White House email announcing the First Lady will discuss Obamacare in conference call open to “anyone” says her comments are “off the record and not for press purposes.”Which begs the question, what top secret information will the first lady be conveying to supporters that the administration does not want the media to report on?
The email was sent out on Wednesday and the conference call will be held Friday at 1:10pm: “You’re invited to join a conference call this Friday, November 14 at 1:10 p.m. ET with First Lady Michelle Obama to discuss the upcoming open enrollment period for the health insurance marketplaces under the Affordable Care Act.” “Feel free to forward this invitation to anyone who’s interested in learning more about enrollment efforts during the open enrollment period from November 15 to February 15.”
“Anyone” who’s interested in learning more? Not, the press, apparently. But, given the uproar caused by the newly-discovered candid remarks by Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber about the “stupidity” of the American people buying into the healthcare law, one can see why they might want to keep the media from reporting on any off-the-cuff claims the First Lady might make.
