$Chump $Change?

So here's a question that's been nagging at me for a while:

If the ObamaTax is such a great deal, such an outstanding idea, then why, almost 4 years after it was passed, does it need high-pressure sales tactics to enforce encourage participation?

First, Matlock weighed in with a folksy enticement that misrepresented how the ObamaTax would work. At over $3 million for his efforts, one might have thought that he could afford a new suit.

Now, HHS Secretary Shecantbeserious is spending 50 times that in a new "outreach" effort:

"[Ms Shecantbeseerious] announced Thursday a plan to help uninsured Americans find coverage under the new health care law by offering $150 million to community health centers ... part of a broad push to promote [the train-wreck], as calendar pages fall away toward key dates to implement the law."

The esteemed Ms Kathy opined that it "won’t be easy" (surely an early contender for understatement of the year), but that it "has huge benefits for the American people."

Again, if that's true, why the $150,000,000 snow job?
