‘Don’t Tap Into Your Beer Money to Cover Those Medical Bills’
Keg stands for Obamacare!

October 24, 2013 - 1:00 pm

Progressive politics are the combination of amorality, arrogance and plain old theft. Some Colorado progressives are running this ad, along with many similar ones, to promote Obamacare to young Colorado residents



The ad seems too idiotic to be real. But it’s real and it’s the product of Progress Now Colorado. PNCO says its mission is “to build and empower a permanent progressive majority, challenge and correct right-wing misinformation, and hold public leaders accountable.”

Apparently it’s “right-wing misinformation” that adult men should take care of their own lives.

In its ads, PNCO is promoting stupidity and thievery. “Be as irresponsible as you want,” the ad’s subtext tells young men. “Obamacare is there to bail you out with other people’s money.”



The ads promote high-risk behavior.



Yes, Phil Powers is a real guy and he actually climbs mountains. He’s happy that you and I are subsidizing his high-risk lifestyle. Progress Colorado is happy about that, too.

PNCO’s message should embarrass serious people, but it follows directly from then Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Obamacare boosterism, which boiled down to “Quit your job, do whatever you want, Obamacare will pay for it!”

There is actually at least a half dozen other ads like this. Pat and Stu went through all of them the other morning on The Blaze and they pointed out they are encouraging people to get insurance and then go out and perform high risk activities, but they don't mention you will have really high premiums and extraordinarily high deductibles so if you call and break your back it will still likely bankrupt a lot of these high risk insured.
