Contest aims to turn young Americans into “death panel” cheerleaders.
August 20, 2013
The U.S. Health and Human Services is running an on-line video contest with $30,000 in cash prizes for pro-Obamacare propaganda videos.
HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced the Healthy Young America contest as a partnership with a national organization called the Young Invincibles.
“Health insurance is out of reach for millions of young people today because it costs too much, or isn’t offered through a job,” Sebelius said in a press release. “Soon the Health Insurance Marketplace will give uninsured young people the opportunity to enroll in affordable health insurance, and the Healthy Young America video contest will help them tell their stories to other young people.”
The contest has three entry categories:
– You Are Not Invincible: Short skits of young people having accidents
– Perform a Song: Songs about health insurance
– Animation: Cartoons explaining the ins and outs of Obamacare
“Your participation in the contest is about more than the opportunity to win money to help pay off those pesky student loans,” the Young Invincibles contest announcement said. “This is your chance to help your friends and other young people learn about their new health insurance options.”
The contest has an entry period of five weeks.
It’s not a stretch to say that contest entries that expose the destructive nature of Obamacare as a full-blown, socialized government takeover of healthcare will not be awarded a prize.
Pharmaceuticals and insurers are the ones that wrote Obamacare to their benefit, as Ron Paul has pointed out.
Under Obamacare, health premiums will skyrocket as insurers are required to sell a full package of “essential benefits,” including maternity, mental health, and medications and must cover everyone who applies.
In Ohio, the average insurance premium is projected to increase 41%.
Florida is following not far behind with a 35% projected premium increase.
Americans are forced to purchase health coverage they do not even need.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has even admitted that Obamacare is only a step towards a nationalized health care system ran completely by the government.
“What we’ve done with Obamacare is have a step in the right direction,” Reid said. “But we’re far from having something that’s going to work forever.”
In a recent survey of doctors, 60% said that it is very likely that many doctors will retire earlier than try and comply with Obamacare.
Considering that other government-run entities such as the U.S. Postal Service and Amtrak have been ran into bankruptcy, the future failure of Obamacare comes into complete focus.
But this time Americans may die on the operating table as a result.
