“Young lady, have you signed up for Obamacare yet? Don’t you know the deadline is almost here?!?”
“You’d better sit yourself down, young man, and sign up for Obamacare. Now!”
When you read that, did you hear your mother’s nagging voice? If so, then the government’s latest scheme to get folks to enroll in Obamacare is doing just what it’s designed to do. The government wants to guilt-trip so-called “young invincibles” into signing up.
A video released Friday as part of an ad campaign called #YourMomCares attempts to catch the attention of tech-savvy millennials by featuring the mothers of celebrities, including Jennifer Lopez, Adam Levine, Jonah Hill and Alicia Keys. And it wraps up with first lady Michelle Obama, herself the mother of two.
“We nag you because we love you,” Obama says at the close of the video.
Yeah, right. It has nothing at all to do with the fact that, like many mothers who refuse to let their children grow up and make their own decisions, the Administration of President Barack Obama thinks it knows better than you do what’s good for you.
And what about all the single moms (and dads) whose insurance rates will remain sky-high because Obamacare allows “children” to stay on their parents’ insurance until the age of 26? They wouldn’t have a reason to want their kids to buy their own Obamacare policies, would they?
