You Have GOT to be Kidding Me...

And, speaking of ObamaCare, saw this on Facebook last night:

The Game of ObamaCare

I mean, really? Are you freaking kidding me? If you get ObamaCare, you live longer, you're happier, and your kid doesn't die of a freak genetic disease. If you decide to get your own insurance, rats are eating your spleen in a dumpster inside of three weeks. Obviously they decided to go for the subtle version pushing the health care plan and not the obvious one, whereby government agents would be dispatched to your home and force you to stub your toe on an ottoman repeatedly until you broke down and signed up for ACA.

We can only assume that the rhetoric - and scare tactics - will only increase the closer we get to implementation day and the more it becomes blatantly obvious that the American people have zero interest in ObamaCare. These pathetic and amateurish attempts to make the ACA into something it's not are only going to make the reality hurt that much more. When the reality that the vast majority of people signing up for ObamaCare are going to see a significant price increase commiserate with a decrease in service, all the cutesie animations in the world aren't going to save you.

It would be funny if this wasn't 1/6 of the US economy they were messing with here...

That is all.

tried it once. Went with college, and start a business, and chose 'no' for Bummercare at every chance... wound up elected to congress with 'special perks' health coverage and my 'happiness' went *DOWN*.

Da FUQ??

Played every course on the map. If you choose obamacare at every turn you're going to wind up super happy. If you don't you're an unhappy (Diabetic, congress critter, etc) If this wasn't so sad I'd consider it a joke.

Check out the ad campaign pitching O-care to 20-somethings.

No, this is not from The Onion.
Yes, these are the real ads.

I miss the competency of Jimmy Carter and the honesty of Richard Nixon.

I'm completely certain that game was paid for with taxpayer funds.
