A new promotion about nationalized healthcare (aka “Obamacare”) has hit social media. I’m not going to enter the politics of Obamacare as you might be for it, or against it; either way that’s not the issue with this campaign.
If these ads are nothing other than a joke we’re in big doggy doo-doo, as they promote some … ahem … strange priorities. Consider a few of the ads:
Drunk guy on a beer keg: Not sure how I ended up here perched on top of this keg. I could totally fall, but that’s OK. My budget will stay balanced even if I don’t, because I got insurance. Now you can too. Thanks Obamacare!
Let’s Get Physical
Excited girl looking at guy, while holding birth-control pills: 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. Now you can too. Thanks Obamacare!
You’re excited about easy access to birth control and I’m excited about getting to know you. She got insurance. Now you can too. Thanks Obamacare!
Guy doing stand on beer keg: Keg stands are crazy. Not having health insurance is crazier. Don’t tap into your beer money to cover those medical bills. We got it covered. Now you can too. Thanks Obamacare!
Is it Real???
Free birth control so you don’t have to be responsible for your actions (and have someone else pay for it to boot), and don’t worry about being a drunk. Yep, those are fine values I’d like to teach my kids.
I’ve done a bit of digging and can’t find out if this is a real promotion, or just somebody’s elaborate joke. According to the about page it’s from a Colorado campaign to promote Obamacare.
Got Insurance is 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.
Promoting sleaze, a benefit of the Affordable Care Act — thanks Obamacare!
Real or fake? In the end it doesn’t matter. The fact it could be real is the problem. Are we actually going to promote these values? And use taxes to do it?
If it turns out to be real, how much of your tax dollars helped fund this trash? Remember that when the government says they’re broke and nothing can be cut.
Who thought it was a good idea? They should be fired.
If we all can’t agree these ads are wildly inappropriate, we’re finished as a society.
In those days there was no king in Israel, but every man did that which was right in his own eyes. (Judges)
Once God’s Word is abandoned (and openly mocked), no standard for morality (and common sense) exists. Thanks Obamacare!
It’s Your Turn To Step Up
In Ezekiel 20 the Lord looks for someone to stand in the gap for the people, but found nobody. Is that where we’re at today? Too worried about social justice (aka greed) and the common good (aka socialism), free birth control, and drunk keg stands, as we plunge into the age of apostasy — instead of following God’s Word? Thanks Obamacare!
Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me. When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. (Ezekiel 3)
It’s time to stand up and declare this trash for what it is. Those providing tax dollars and those creating this should be immediately fired. Of course, nobody will be.
Maybe I’m naive, but these ads have to be a joke. Totally. OMG, I hope reality is as easy to get as birth control, so we don’t slouch toward Gomorrah.
It’s time for the 3% solution … next week.
