Back in August, the Chicago Sun-Times reported on Michelle Obama and David Axelrod’s involvement in a University of Chicago Medical Center program that steered patients who don’t have private insurance — primarily poor, black people — to other health care facilities.
David Catron at The American Thinker revisits the plan, its deceptive marketing to patients, and ponders the future:
Meanwhile, the program’s parents, Michelle Obama and David Axelrod, have moved to Washington. As the First Lady and the President’s closest advisor, they wield enormous power. Indeed, they may be the most powerful people in the Obama Administration, aside from the President himself.

Come to think of it, isn’t Obamacare being sold to us in pretty much the same way the Urban Health Initiative was sold to Chicago?
