Lebron James: Obama’s Newest Healthcare Promoter

Posted By Sports Talk Florida On March 14, 2014 @ 12:16 PM In Florida News,Insider Main,main feature,NBA | No Comments

The Affordable Car Act has been detailed in commercials on TV, radio, print ads, and more. But now, President Obama has recruited a big NBA name to get people to sign up–Lebron James.

In this video, LeBron encourages viewers to sign up and gives clear instructions on how to do so.

It’s obviously a blunt political statement and a risky one at that. It seems that protecting current endorsement deals isn’t something of concern to LeBron. James told the Bleacher Report [1] that he’s not concerned about the repercussions of this ad.

“I mean, I can’t worry about that. Especially who I am. I mean, I know that everything that I do is going to be bigger than what it should be or blown out of proportion. But what I believe in and the people that I support is what it’s all about. So I can sleep comfortably at night.”

“I know that everything that I do is going to be bigger than what it should be or blown out of proportion.” I think that’s what Obama is counting on.”
