Inside the Beltway: Stripping down for Obamacare
The Washington Times ^ | 10/3/2013 | Jennifer Harper

Attractive women wearing nothing but a smile and flesh-colored underwear emblazoned with the motto “Are You Covered?” strolled the most popular shopping areas of Denver in the name of the Affordable Care Act this week. Oh, and there were blondes in the shortest of short shorts plus muscular young men in gray flannel boxers — and that is all — also on parade. They sported beribboned signs reading “Without health insurance, you’re exposed.”

The earnest models were handing out information to startled passers-by, hired by Colorado HealthOP, a nonprofit insurance company eager to get the message about the new health care law to the public. Some of the locals were not impressed.

“So now we have to dress like Miley Cyrus to sell Obamacare?” asked Kelly Maher, a politically inclined Denver mother, who took her multiple protests to Twitter.

“Hey feminists, doesn’t this objectify women. Hello? Anyone?” responded Christian Cama, a conservative Florida lobbyist and founder of the Reaganista.com blog.

The insurance company in question entered the social media fray to defend itself. The underwear model outreach was “a light-hearted event to call attention to a serious issue: 829 thousand uninsured Coloradans,” the company responded in its own tweet.

They sound like they look pretty gay which would be fitting if they’re advertising 0bummer’s flagship product. That sounds like they’re pretty desperate to get people to enroll if they’re resorting to those tactics...

I prefer Femen’s tactics, if not their messages.

Evil is always vapid, boring, cliched, etc.

Yes, Ozero and his minions are corporatists... fascists. Benito would be proud! Washongton DC is now called the Duce's city.

Good plan. Get a lot of attention for a seriously flawed thing that exists only because no one was paying attention.

It’s almost as though the insurance companies are working hand in glove with the Obama administration, almost like big companies love having Democrats force people to buy insurance...

Childish display of behaviors unrelated to the subject on the table for discussion. The disconnect is troubling and the mental condition of the participants should come into question.

So there really is no depth to which this depraved administration won’t stoop.

Maybe they can have g-strings and pasties made up with “I. Support. Obama” on them and give them away to the local strip joint. Or how about paying taggers to spray paint pro-obabacare slogans on toilet walls? And those gutters are just begging for a good slogan ...
