Video clip of the day


The absurdities surrounding the Affordable Care Act abound so you can just file the following under "You just can't make this up".

From the Daily Caller:

The Department of Health and Human Services has crowned a YouTube video entitled “Forget About The Price Tag” as the grand prize winner in a contest meant to encourage young people to sign up for Obamacare.

The video contest, announced in August — in partnership with a group called Young Invincibles — encouraged participants to produce clips filled with pro-Obamacare messaging.

HHS’s grand prize-winning video, announced Monday by the White House, features a young woman named Erin McDonald singing an Obamacare-loving version of Jessie J’s hit single, “Price Tag.”

A law sold on the premise that other people are going to pay for your healthcare... so of course, the winning video is titled "Forget About The Price Tag."

And when these Young Invincibles, who are being counted on to foot the bill for this entire Ponzi scheme get smacked up side the head by sticker shock, it's... no biggie, man... forget about the price tag.

Another brilliant marketing ploy by Team O: telling 20 and 30-somethings hammered by sky-rocketing premiums that it's all for the greater good when making the world a better place via the Affordable Care Act.

When you are convinced you are the smartest kids in the room and that your crap doesn't stink, we suppose it leads you to do and say all sort of critically un-selfaware things.

Mind boggling.

Reminds me of Churchill. "If you're not a liberal at twenty you have no heart, if you're not a conservative at forty you have no brain." She's clearly under 40, but I still don't like her odds of passing his second test when she gets there...

Somehow, I'm betting that when some poor, hormone-fueled dude gets down on one knee and offers her a ring with a cubic zirconium, she's not going to be singing a version of this song.

As for the song itself, I'll go with Mike's assessment from this Monkees episode.
