A few weeks ago the taxpayer-funded Thanks ObamaCare campaign released the “Brosurance” ads, which featured young men drinking beer, doing keg stands, and asking “Got Insurance?” The same organization has since released new ads, this time aimed at young woman. One features a young woman holding birth control pills while standing next to a young man. The ad’s caption expresses how eager she is to have sex with someone she has apparently just met:
OMG, he’s hot! Let’s hope he’s as easy to get as this birth control. My health insurance covers the pill, which means all I have to worry about is getting him between the covers. I got insurance.
Another ad features a young woman standing with actor Ryan Gosling. The caption reads:
Hey Girl, you’re excited about easy access to birth control and I’m excited about getting to know you. She got insurance.
You’ve come a long way, baby.
In order for the ObamaCare insurance pools to work; young, healthy people, like those featured in these ads, must sign up in droves to pay for the older and sicker people that are certain to enroll. These ads are obviously aimed at making ObamaCare appear to be hip, edgy, and cool (if not a little sordid).
How hip, edgy, and cool ObamaCare will look after these young people feel the rate shock of reality is the very thing that will determine whether the president’s signature piece of legislation implodes, or not.
