Don’t let Uncle Sam play doctor

Friends don’t let friends sign up for a bad deal.

Presented without comment, because it speaks for itself: Generation Opportunity’s new nightmare-fuel anti-ObamaCare ad.

Well, okay, one comment: this is obviously part of an effort to warn young people against falling into the ObamaCare trap.  It’s a system designed to pillage the young and healthy, for the benefit of others.  It’s going to work about as well as every other redistributionist scam, especially for the people on the wrong end of the redistribution pipeline.

Generation Opportunity has an “Opt Out” campaign built around this ad.  This provocative, sarcastic approach seems like the sort of thing that gets the attention of millennials, and makes them curious to learn more.
