You’ve already seen the “brosurance” and “hosurance” ads featured at doyougotinsurance.com, the Colorado non profit devoted to promoting and directing users to Colorado’s official ObamaCare Exchange website. Conservatives have not been shy about criticizing what we see as sexist, insulting and genuinely offensive ads.
But what about the people the ads are trying to reach? What do the “millennials,” “young invincibles,” aka the ObamaCare “marks” think about them?
Greta Van Susteren had some 20-somethings on to talk about the latest Obamacare ads targeting young people. None of them were impressed.
James Shindler, a corporate lawyer in Washington noted, ”first and foremost, there’s something strange going on. Typically, in a democracy, it’s the people that tell the government what we want. But here, we have the government trying to coerce us into buying something that THEY want. And it didn’t convince me. It didn’t address why I would want to buy the healthcare in the first place.”
Dan Joseph of the MRC went to American University, last month, to ask students what they thought of the ads. Most of the women found them “insulting” and creepy.”
“There’s too much of a focus on the sexual aspect of it,” one woman said. Another one said that the ad looked like it was created by ObamaCare opponents in order to denigrate ObamaCare.
Jay Carney was asked by Jonathan Karl if they really think young people are going to buy health insurance because “Barack O’Breezy tells them to do it. Carney said that “there are efforts under way to reach consumers where they live, if you will.”
Apparently the Obama Regime thinks that young invincibles “live” in their pants.
