Ads recently released by the ProgressNow Colorado Education and the Colorado Consumer Health Initiative have been seen by many to promote a life of “easy sex and booze.” The New York Times wrote, “Sign up for ObamaCare and get a sleazy hookup. Colorado has launched a new ad campaign that attempts to entice young women to sign up for the new national health-care program with the promise of free contraceptives and carefree sex.”
Although many are outraged, some see the ads as a way to add comedy to a serious subject. Government regulated healthcare is very controversial and the President’s biggest move during his time in office. Some see the ads as satire and others see it as a statement of support for the Affordable Care Act, even with the Obama Administration not commenting if they supported the ads. Freedom of speech allows the organization to say whatever they want. One question to ask you now: got insurance?
