The right-leaning activist group, Generation Opportunity, is encouraging young people to “opt out” of Obamacare with a penetrating PSA commercial. It features a creepy Uncle Sam conducting a prostate and gynecological exam instead of an actual doctor. The message is clear: the government is taking over health care and you’re gonna get screwed!
“Good news: you are not required to purchase health insurance through an Obamacare exchange! There are cheaper, better options for young people,” reads the video description, which includes a link to an online petition. The goal is to defund Obamacare, which needs the young and healthy to sign up in order to subsidize the rest of us.
Creepy Uncle Sam will make appearances across college campuses as part of a $750,000 ad campaign, funded at least in part by billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch.
“We’re unabashed advocates for young people, and we’re happy to work with people who support that mission and vision,” Generation Opportunity President Evan Feinberg told Mashable.
