Obamacare Madness

Andy Matthews

Just when you thought Obamacare advertising ploys couldn’t get any more ridiculous (remember Pajama Boy? Colorado’s “Brosurance”?), the White House issued its March Madness challenge.

Unlike the typical NCAA bracket challenges that require participants to choose which Division-1 teams will rise to the top of an already-accomplished group, the president’s March Madness challenge asks users to choose the lesser of evils: their favorite things about Obamacare.

Accompanied by GIFs (including an Elmo doll falling off a store shelf; a woman dancing on, then falling off, a bathroom sink; and a dog running into a hedge), the possible choices for why people should get covered include things like, “It will give your mom peace of mind,” “You only live once,” and “You never know when you’ll take a hard foul.”

Unfortunately, as we’ve seen in the past few months, there’s no real winner when it comes to Obamacare. Hard-working Americans are now facing higher premiums, substandard care and fewer choices.

While we continue to bring you the latest news and analysis of this destructive law, I encourage you to join NPRI’s NCAA bracket challenge.

Unlike Obamacare, our challenge truly is free, and there will be a winner. And the winner of our challenge will receive a free signed copy of Jonah Goldberg’s The Tyranny of Clichés.

So take a few minutes to join our challenge and fill out an NCAA bracket.

By the way, I found picking my Final Four to be much, much easier than picking my favorite things about Obamacare. I’m sure the same will be true for you.
