Winning entry for HHS’s ObamaCare propaganda video contest: “Forget About the Price Tag”

posted at 3:56 pm on December 4, 2013 by

It’s far and away the least creative clip among the finalists, but with a message about ignoring cost, how could it lose?

Listening to the wind whistling through her ears would make a more pleasant song.

You have to be shtting me.

kemojr on December 4, 2013 at 4:08 PM

Are Kool Aid ODs included in Obamacare’s coverage mandates?

forest on December 4, 2013 at 4:09 PM

She’s kinda cute, if you put the volume on mute.

Don’t go all Martin Bashir on us now.

Forget About the Price Tag

Republicans will pay for it!

Ward Cleaver on December 4, 2013 at 4:47 PM

..in a decade, this hawtie will be married to a union stevedore, have four screaming brats, 40 extra pounds of fat, sagging knokkers, elephantine gams, fading tats, and terminal flatulence regularly..and struggling to make ends meet with three part-time jobs..

..she will feel *so* used.

The War Planner on December 4, 2013 at 4:57 PM

That was awesome!

Xasprtr on December 4, 2013 at 5:00 PM

She couldn’t clean her room first?

stvnscott on December 4, 2013 at 5:16 PM

Well, which is it? Don’t worry about the price tag, or don’t need a lot of cha ching?? Those two contradict each other!

redshirt on December 4, 2013 at 5:20 PM

Ignore the price tag, ignore accountability, ignore paying what you owe — spoken like true democrats.

Blake on December 4, 2013 at 5:27 PM

Hey, they insure their iPhones why shouldn’t they insure themselves???

Unwatchable…

JohnGalt23 on December 4, 2013 at 5:49 PM

I lasted 10 whole seconds.

Naturally Curly on December 4, 2013 at 5:51 PM

Unwatchable…

JohnGalt23 on December 4, 2013 at 5:49 PM

Seriously…. and this was the winning entry?

I can see they spent about as much time & thought on this as they did building the 0bamacare website.

UltimateBob on December 4, 2013 at 6:05 PM

stvnscott on December 4, 2013 at 5:16 PM

Nah, she’s part of the entitled generation where her mom probably cleans her room for her. Bet she has a bunch of participation trophies somewhere around there too.

nextgen_repub on December 4, 2013 at 6:13 PM

Here is how this songs “message” is completely eliminated.

Hey, kid. Would you rather spend your money on something you’ll never ever POSSIBLY use, or would you rather use it on dates, concert tickets, down payment for a suhweet new ride, or weed.

kurtzz3 on December 4, 2013 at 6:59 PM

The sun on the meadow is summery warm
The stag in the forest runs freeeeee
But gather together to greet the storm
Obamacare belongs to meeeeee!

Blake on December 4, 2013 at 7:02 PM

Just wana make the world dance watch the world burn.

The War Planner on December 4, 2013 at 4:57 PM

Or a burnt out single career woman.

Count to 10 on December 4, 2013 at 7:51 PM

I hope this democrat law destroys every single thing and person that every democrat in this country loves and holds dear.

Murphy9 on December 4, 2013 at 7:58 PM

Again, with guaranteed issue, why spend the money? Just sign up once you get sick. Uncle Sugar will take care of you.

Kafir on December 4, 2013 at 8:10 PM

Julia, is that you?

Forward to Utopia!

You may find this version more pleasing…

…the visuals fit the melody perfectly.

LOL – Noticed that, too.

Yup. Jessie J – Price Tag.

Fallon on December 5, 2013 at 8:56 AM

Gee, who knew that Obamacare was also the fountain of eternal youth? According to this bimbo, if you buy insurance coverage for a high price that you covers stuff you don’t need it will keep you “young and healthy.”

natasha333 on December 5, 2013 at 9:35 AM

Your video is lay-lay lay-lay lay-lame
‘Cuz you ain’t got no gay-gay gay-game
And certainly no shay-shay shay-shame
For when it comes to OOOOOO-care
There ain’t no there there

Christien on December 5, 2013 at 11:55 AM

Comments on YouTube are conveniently not allowed. :( I’m sure they would have been epic!

stvnscott on December 5, 2013 at 12:52 PM

Don’t need a lot of money, money, money…”

But you do need some money. Depending on your circumstances, it might even seem like a lot.

Don’t have the money?

Well, sucks to be you, doesn’t it?

DarthBrooks on December 4, 2013 at 4:07 PM

This could probably pass “fair use” muster under the allowance for parodies. After all, the entirety of Obamacare is a parody of a real plan.

Shump on December 5, 2013 at 5:44 PM

Wow, that was bad. And this was the best one? Scary.

talkingpoints on December 6, 2013 at 9:55 AM

This video is yet another example of “things the government can’t do“!!!

It’s only use is to define the word “banal”!

landlines on December 6, 2013 at 10:31 AM

Did anyone else hear the line–

You can’t put a price on life.

???

Excuse me, sweetheart, but that’s exactly what ObamaCares does.

rwenger43 on December 6, 2013 at 12:16 PM

That girl so stupid it make my teeth hurt.
