President Obama and administration officials are rallying religious leaders to “spread the word” on new health care legislation to reinforce public support and to raise awareness about the effects of new insurance reforms.
In a Tuesday conference call, President Obama told various religious leaders, “Get out there and spread the word.”
“This is something that we’ll be able to look back on, just like we do on Medicare and Social Security, as a cornerstone that improves the security of millions of Americans,” the president commented, saying the changes lower costs at the government level and for families and businesses.
President Obama told faith leaders to treat the new law as settled fact and to use their influence to convey that message to congregants, Politico reports.
