The Trump administration, and hopefully Congress, have every intention of dismantling and repealing Obamacare, but that doesn’t stop Democrats from getting upset that enrollment advertising is being cancelled.
“They’re deliberately trying to undermine enrollment which was growing,” Topher Spiro, vice president for health policy at the liberal Center for American Progress, wrote on Twitter. “Healthy enrollment would disprove their false claim of a death spiral.”
They still cling to the wishcasting falsehood that somehow Obamacare will resurrect itself from the graveyard of terrible, badly-implemented and lie-infested ideas.
The entire premise of these really dumb “pajama boy” ads is that people need to be encouraged to sign up for overpriced, bloated, many-times useless health care coverage. Young, healthy people that is. Because the sick poor know where to go to get things for free. Nobody has to advertise where to pick up a welfare check, or get a Social Security benefit.
That anyone is fooled into enrolling just to pay for other people to get free stuff is just laughable. They enroll because they have to. Because it’s a mandate. It’s the law, and you get fined if you don’t.
They might as well have states advertise “don’t forget to buy car insurance because you’ll get fined if you’re pulled over without it!” Or “don’t go outside without clothes because walking around naked is illegal most places outside of Vermont.” And my favorite: “Don’t murder today.”
Good riddance to pajama boy. And for the faux offended Democrats who spew fake outrage: it’s your turn to swallow hard now.
