Wonder what you would find if you frisked the supposedly “non-partisan” Rock the Vote?
Answer: They don’t want young Americans to have sex… with those who oppose Obama-Care.
Haha! I really hope this public service announcement isn’t serious, because it’s absolutely unbelievable as it is stupid:
Why ignorant? First, the young people to whom they’re preaching largely avoid buying health insurance, and for good reason. They don’t need to spend $3600 per year (Minnesota’s average in 2007) to cover a couple of doctor visits every year. They’re better off buying catastrophic health insurance, rather than the mandated comprehensive coverage under ObamaCare, and use HSAs to pay for their health care with tax-free cash. That’s what Keith Olbermann does, after all, and he’s a lot older than the RtV target audience.
Who benefits from this push? The young adults don’t; they’re going to pay a lot more than they receive. Insurance companies will benefit by forcing them into the system, reducing the risk and spreading the costs over a wider base. I don’t consider insurance companies evil, but many of the ObamaCare advocates do — and yet they’re pushing their followers to subsidize slight declines in health insurance premiums for the older generations in America. It’s just like Social Security, only with a worse payoff in the end.
Hmm… Once you move pass the whole ignorance behind this PSA, you have to ask: How did this “non-partisan” organization actually approve this? After all, it seems pretty clear they’re pushing an incredible leftist idea and encouraging young women to basically whore themselves out to sell Obama-Care.
Is that honestly okay? Fellas? Ladies? …Feminists? Anyone? ❓
Side-Note: Maybe we as taxpayers should be frightened about this public service announcement, because I assume the more premarital sex young Americans have results in the more premarital babies that will be born. In other words, the taxpayers will be charged the bill. Yippy! Haha.
