"Friends don't let friend sign up for a bad deal," the lede says on the website OptOut.org - and it's part of an all out effort to get young people to refuse buying into Obamacare. Getting young people to buy in is a necessity in order to keep the program paid for and afloat. That's what's behind the "Creepy Uncle Sam" video - another effort to defund Obamacare.
"Good news! You are not required to purchase health insurance through an Obamacare exchange! There are cheaper, better options for young people," it says, and goes on to list why Obamacare is a bad deal for Millennials:
Obamacare is full of exceptions for those connected enough to get special favors, mostly corporate cronies, congress and their special friends. These inconsistencies contribute to businesses avoiding Obamacare by shifting to more part-time positions-hurting those looking for jobs after graduation.
Now that we know government collects the email and phone data of innocent Americans, do you want to further compromise your privacy? If you sign up for Obamacare, your sensitive information will go into a new central data hub—an identity thief’s dream.
Signing up for Obamacare will force Millennials to pay more to cover costs for the wealthier. Rates will increase by an average of 169% for the young while older people will pay about 22% less.
Starting Oct. 1, uninsured Americans will be able to shop for health insurance through new online markets, or exchanges, in every state. Many low- and middle-income people will qualify for federal subsidies to help cover the cost. The Obama administration is eager for healthy young people to enroll in the exchanges, to help offset the cost of insuring older and sicker people.
The Creepy Uncle Sam video has drawn criticism from the Left, saying the mascot is a defilement of an American icon. The head of the group "GenerationOpportunity" behind the video said a lot of people his age plan to dress up for Halloween as Creepy Uncle Sam.
