NFL Likely To Stay Away From Promotional Obamacare Campaign

The NFL on Friday announced that it was "likely staying out of one of the roughest fights in Washington: the war over" the Patient Protection & Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare. Republican leaders in the Senate on the same day "issued a stern warning to sports organizations not to partner with the White House on an issue marked by such 'divisiveness and persistent unpopularity.'" NFL Senior VP/PR Greg Aiello in an e-mail wrote, "We have responded to the letters we received from members of Congress to inform them we currently have no plans to engage in this area and have had no substantive contact with the administration about (the health-care law’s) implementation" (WASHINGTON POST, 6/29).
