Obamacare advocates were doing their best to get a little creative for last Saturday’s “youth enrollment day”. Of course, groups pushing Obamacare on the younger generations have been forced to get more innovative as the coveted “Millennials” shun the President’s signature piece of legislation. Even if a few dozen Millennials were convinced to sign up during the national “youth enrollment” day, they wouldn’t have been able to do so because Healthcare.gov was down for maintenance. (Then again, how is an inaccessible healthcare.gov website anything other than typical?)
The push to get the youth to embrace big-government-healthcare has proven more difficult than the Facebook-savvy White House had originally anticipated. (And when we say “youth”, we mean people who are not riding on their parent’s healthcare until they are 26 years old… So, I guess we mean that “young adult” age-range of 27 to 32 years olds… Silly kids.)
In Colorado, there were the famous “brosurance” ads that featured frat boys selling Obamacare while simultaneously doing headstands over beer kegs. (Because nothing says “get covered” like alcohol-fueled acts of precarious physical acrobatics.) And how could we possibly forget the cleverness of “pajama-boy” gleefully beaming in his new-found dependency on government? Well, an Obamacare advocacy group in Texas reached deep into their bag of intellectual integrity to bring the effort one more disturbing tactic: A pub crawl.
