Double swing-state screw-up: Obama White House can't tell difference between The U and Miami University

ObamaUIn touting what it sees as the successes of the Affordable Care Act/ObamaCare, the White House sent out a press release with a double swing-state screw-up: It confused Florida's University of Miami with Ohio's Miami University. Well, perhaps it's understandable. It's not like President Obama recently visited UM and made "The U" gesture. Oh....wait...(more here)

Anyway, here's the press release:

HHS Secretary Sebelius to Commemorate the Second Anniversary of Health Reform in Miami, Florida

Secretary Sebelius to participate in a women’s health discussion at Jessie Trice Community Health Center

WHAT:           Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius will join President of Miami University, Donna Shalala, to discuss how the passage of the health reform law, the Affordable Care Act, has provided access to critical consumer protections for women.  Women have been disproportionally impacted by insurance company abuses such as discrimination based on pre-existing conditions, coverage recessions and lifetime limits on care; however, because of the Affordable Care Act, being a woman is no longer considered to be a pre-existing condition.  Secretary Sebelius and President Shalala will hear from Florida women who have been able to gain more control over their families’ health care with expanded options for more affordable health insurance, and they will highlight additional protections in the law including increased access to critical preventive services like cancer screenings and well-women visits.

WHO:             Kathleen Sebelius

Secretary, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services

Donna Shalala
President, University of Miami &

Former Secretary, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services

WHEN:                       8:45 AM (EDT)

                        Tuesday, March 20, 2012

WHERE:         Jessie Trice Community Health Center

5607 N. W. 27th Avenue, Suite #1, Miami, FL  33142
