Cat lovers across the country are expressing their displeasure with the administration’s use of kittens in an advertisement to promote Obamacare signups.

The offending image, found on the website “The Adorable Care Act,” shows four adorable kittens in a supposed Valentine’s Day greeting with the caption: “Treat yourself right this Valentines Day. Get pamPURRED with health care.”

Lots of cute pictures at http://adorablecareact.tumblr.com/ and it's indeed annoying at least that they are used to try to sell Obacare.

Dear FedGov:

Yes, I love baby kittens. That has nothing to do with anything.

STOP REACHING INTO MY LIFE AND SCREWING THINGS UP.

The people in this regime are ALL insane. Free baby kittens when you sign up for socialized medical care? Are you kidding me?

Another epic public-relations fail.

Didn't they learn from the Pajama Boy debacle?

Are they thinking of putting 100 baby chimps on typewriters
to rewrite 0bamaCare? It would have to be an improvement.

What debacle? I don’t think they see it that way. These weirdo’s are simply without shame.

Do they think people are going to the doctor as a relaxing leisure activity, like it’s a spa? What planet are these people on?

This C-fuck of a program is doing to Public Relations and government programs’ reputation what Miley Cyrus did to sleazy cheap pop music. I like that.

Sign up for Obamacare, or the dog gets it.

... And we have plenty of practice shooting dogs.

Cats and Kittens are exempt from obamacare unless they are being euthanized.

I don’t think they’re actually giving away kittens but what they’re offended by is that such a cute animal is being used to sell such a dud of a product. The article said that they thought it would really work with young women, but the image made me wish they were giving away the kittens instead of hawking Obamacare.

If I lived in the US I would say, I’ll take the little black kitty on the right and you can keep your obama-care.

My 6 cats are marching on Washington, D.C. with torches, tar and feathers as we speak. And you don’t want to mess around with Rosie. She taught my son’s 80 lb. K9 a lesson or two.

When Bill Clinton heard that pussies were marching on Washington, he cancelled a speaking engagement and flew right back to DC.

I know you don’t, I meant HE can keep it.

Trying to look on the bright side, the advert might encourage some people to adopt a kitten, however; they’ll look at those dear little faces and realize there’s something missing in their lives.

Are they Viking kittehs? And, are they still capable of procreating? Sounds like more are needed.
