Earlier this week, I wrote a column for Time about the controversial "Got Insurance?" ad campaign created by two Colorado-based nonprofits. Here's a snippet:
Is massive stupidity covered under Obamacare? What about sexual promiscuity and heavy drinking? Those are some of the questions raised by a controversial ad campaign that aims to encourage younger Americans to sign up for health-insurance plans created by the Affordable Care Act.
But there's a deeper issue that the new "Got Insurance?" campaign ignores completely: Why should young and relatively poor people be forced to sign up for insurance that charges them above-market rates to subsidize rates for old and relatively wealthy people?
In this sense, Obamacare is simply the latest instance of generational theft being perpetrated against younger Americans. It's a feature and not a bug of the President's signature health care law that insurance premiums for those under 30 are likely to increase significantly to allow premiums for older Americans to fall. Indeed, the whole plan hinges on getting 2.7 million whippersnappers out of a total of 7 million enrollees to sign up in the individual market during the first year. If too many older and sicker folks flood the market, the system will crash even faster than the HealthCare.gov website ....

Is that an actual Obamacare ad? I truly thought it was a PARODY!
Why would someone wanted to be protected from common sense.
Oh. I forgot. This ad is meant for Democrats.
I think that’s a real ad...
I doubt this guy will be that easy for her to get in bed. He looks a little light in the loafers. However, if she’s as easy as she acts I’m sure there are plenty of men who will take her up on her offer.
Funny how 100% of the drunk and sexually promiscuous imbeciles in these ads are white. Whatever happened to liberals’ love of racial diversity?
Yes, it’s for real.
Insulting if you ask me.
These are the idiots who think having a pot-head Marxist in the White House is cool. No substance, no brains, no class. We’re doomed.
The "Brosurance" keg-stand ad enrages me even more than this stupid ad.
And they ALL enrage me to varying degrees.
I'm not sure what angers me the most.
The fact that tax dollars were spent, the fact that the intended audience is portrayed as complete dimwits, the fact that dimwits make up about 80% of the democrats base, or worst of all, that the people who created these ads KNOW what a piece of crap Obamacare is for the target audience, and they don't care.
The kicker is that the dimwits are not going to be swayed by these ads is an even bigger scandal.
Take a ride of to the magic land of Ocare.
'Specially when they can pay a straight $95 and roll the dice on not needing treatment during the next year.
And they can't lose since they can always sign up at the time that they do get sick, since pre-existing conditions have to be covered ...
Your pic forgot to include that the Millenial had to move into his parents’ basement since his cut in hours does not allow him to afford a $1K/month 1-bedroom apt.
That ad makes me want to puke.
And another great reason marijuana should not be legalized.
