Obamacare Targets Youth With Sex & Drinking AdsPosted by J Craig on November 13, 2013
The Obama Administration has been taking it pretty hard on the chin for the disastrous roll out of Obamacare. The website was built and cost nearly $1 Billion taxpayer dollars and it still doesn’t work. They have been answering questions in a variety of different committee meetings with even the Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius forced to testify on the website’s launch failure. They know that in order to make this health scheme actually “work”, they need to enroll millions of healthy young people in order to defray the cost of older less healthy people.
Now with all of these major problems and a failing website to worry about, the Thanks Obamacare campaign has released multiple ads targeting young people by marketing sex, birth control pills, and drinking. These ads are part of a “Got Insurance?” campaign, which seem to be offending quite a few Americans, even millenials who are those being targeted. What do you think?
These ads are obviously aimed at making Obamacare seem cool and hip by marketing to the young, healthy millennials they need to enroll in order for it to work, but are they appropriate at all?
The ad refers people to doyougotinsurance.com, which redirects to gotinsurancecolorado.org, “a project of the Thanks Obamacare campaign, created by the Colorado Consumer Health Initiative and ProgressNow Colorado Education to educate everyone about the benefits of the Affordable Care Act.”
What do you think of these ads? Too far and ridiculous or perfectly okay because this is how young people act?
