When is a pro-Obama group quoted as being "non-partisan"? Hey, always!

You've probably never heard of a group called "Families USA," but if you read a newspaper or listen to national news you've certainly seen quotes from them--including numbers cited as fact.

The group's website describes it as a “national nonprofit, non-partisan organization dedicated to the achievement of high-quality, affordable health care for all Americans.”

Three days after the target launch date of the Obamacare website this self-declared non-partisan group got a $1.1 million grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to gather “success stories” of Americans with Obamacare and distribute them to the media.

The group's co-founder and executive director is Ron Pollack, who said the goal of the grant is "to bridge the information gap for people who can significantly benefit from the Affordable Care Act.”

Remember, citizen, Families USA is, like, totally “non-partisan.”  That means they're, like, totally objective 'n stuff.  So you can trust them to tell you the truth.  Really.

Just after Obamacare passed, Ron Pollack--the co-founder and Executive Director of Families USA, remember?--in an interview with the WaPo's Ezra Klein, said he planned to help start a group called "Enroll America" that would raise millions of dollars to be used to help people enroll in Obamacare.  More precisely, he said “What we’ll do is raise tens of millions of dollars for state groups to work with the state to try to create the most effective systems to apply and enroll.”
Sure enough, Pollack did co-found Enroll America and is currently on its board of directors.

But wait...if the guy who co-founded Families USA also helped start "Enroll America" and raised "tens of millions of dollars" to help people enroll in Obamacare, only an idiot would believe "Families USA" was non-partisan.  And only a propaganda rag like the Post would quote it as being "non-partisan."

In fact, the grants given by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to Families USA and Enroll America show they're in the same suite.

But remember, citizen, Families USA is totally non-partisan.

Oh, and the president of Families USA is a guy by the name of Philippe Villers.  In what must surely be just some weird coincidence, Villers is also secretary and treasurer of a group called the Herndon Alliance, which helped the left create catch-phrases to build support for Obamacare before it passed.  They're credited with crafting that famous line “If you like your health care plan, you can keep it.”  Notable socialist George Soros has funded them.

But remember, citizen, Families USA is totally non-partisan.

So when can a thoroughly partisan group be called "non-partisan"?  Answer:  When the group in question is pushing Obama propaganda and the Lying Media wants to print said propaganda and say it came from a "non-partisan" source.

See, citizen?  It's simple, really.  You just don't understand the meaning of clear terms like "non-partisan." You probably went to a state university instead of one of the schools we elites attended.

It's okay...we'll still let you sign up for the Affordable Care Act.  Or force you to.
