Crossroads Grassroots Policy Strategies (Crossroads GPS) today announced it has entered the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services video contest aimed at promoting Obamacare among young people.
The video, which was submitted late Sunday night, is entitled, plainly, “Propaganda.” It can be viewed here. High resolution versions are available upon request.
The video goes on to capture many of the less savory aspects of the law that HHS has glossed over in its talking points and official literature – including the penalty for not complying with the individual mandate, and the dramatic increase in premiums for younger people that are taking effect.
“We’re in it to win it,” said Crossroads GPS president and CEO Steven Law. “There is an ugly side to this law, and we expect the government to communicate those less savory aspects of the law to young people just as they are hyping some of the benefits. We hope every young person will watch this video – and vote for it.”
From the video: “Obamacare: Just like guys enjoy premium leather seats, so to, you’ll enjoy paying triple the health care premiums out of your new part time salary. Speaking of guys, ever been on a ‘man date’ before? At Obamacare, we’re full of mandates.”
