    I published a couple of diaries that hit the rec list about it.   I don't recall if there were front-page diaries about it.  

    Regardless, the program was sorely under-advertised in general.

    •  This is a big problem with the ACA, too. (6+ / 0-)

      Polls have shown that uninsured people who stand to benefit the most from the ACA are also the most uninformed about how it can actually help them.

      Messaging is great, but effective implementation of these policies is dependent upon people being aware that these resources are available to them.

      I think one of the main challenges to progressives is being able to communicate in simple language how these federal programs (with their various acronyms) can help people in their everyday lives.

      Legalized corruption is destroying our democracy.
