NBC’s ‘Healthcare’ week kicks off with pro-Obamacare coverage and shows

NBC kicks off a week of programming to help Obamacare get off its feet, according to a press release sent out by the network. The law has been widely opposed by all Republicans and supported by most Democrats, including President Obama.

The headline of the press release reads:

NBC News Launches “Ready or Not, the New Healthcare Law,” a Multi-Screen Experience to Help Americans Get the Most Out of the Affordable Care Act

Dr. Nancy Snyderman Answers Most Pressing Questions Across Social and Via New Video Series #AskDrNancy

Interactive Tools and Resources Help Audience Navigate New Healthcare Benefits and Marketplaces

The NBC release says it will help explain how to enroll in Obamacare, a service no doubt to President Obama who has himself been barnstorming the country to try to boost enrollment in the program.

“The Affordable Care Act goes into effect on October 1st, but what does this mean for you and your family? During the week of September 30th, NBC News will devote special coverage across all of its platforms to ‘Ready or Not, the New Healthcare Law,’ an extensive series aimed at explaining the complexities of the ACA and its impact on consumers. Coverage will span multiple screens – on air, across digital and through social media, and also provide users with interactive tools and resources, available on NBCNews.com/Healthcare, to help shed light on what the healthcare act means for them and explain how to enroll,” reads the release.

“Ready or Not, the New Healthcare Law” kicked off on Monday, September 30th with results from a Kaiser Family Foundation poll, conducted in conjunction with NBC News, that details public opinion and awareness about the ACA.
