The Obama administration is in talks with the National Football League to make commercials promoting the new Obamacare law.

Health & Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said this week that the NFL "has been very actively and enthusiastically engaged" in these discussions.  Taxpayer dollars would be used to pay for these NFL Obamacare commercials.

Americans for Tax Reform today released a petition that allows taxpayers to voice their opposition to this wasteful spending of their money.

The petition reads:

"As an NFL fan, I am opposed to my tax dollars being used by the NFL to promote Obamacare.  I don't watch the NFL to be preached at by HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and other politicians.  Keep healthcare politics out of the NFL."
