    Steelers, Dan Rooney partner with Obama administration on Affordable Care Act [LINK]

    By Bill Toland / Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

    The Pittsburgh Steelers and owner Dan Rooney are partnering with the Obama administration to promote the discounted health insurance policies that are now available by way of the Affordable Care Act.

    The partnership with the Steelers is part of HHS's ongoing campaign to team up with athletes, sports franchises and other celebrities to promote "Obamacare" and urge the uninsured -- particularly the young and healthy -- to sign up for coverage.

    Dan Rooney is getting senile, isn't he? The NFL already told the Great Pretender to take a hike when he approached the league about doing the exact same thing.

    Don't know about a pattern, but I do see a propensity for wanting to distract from the current dialogue. Sure, bring up changing the Redskins' name so you can start another controversy and people will forget about the ACA and debt ceiling crises.

    Oh, wait ... that is a pattern isn't it?
