New Obamacare Pitch: 'You Only YOLO Once'



March 18, 2014 - 12:24 PM

The Obama White House has tried and failed to convince young people to enroll in Obamacare. But after countless months, they may have finally stumbled upon the perfect way sell a vastly expensive and flailing program: YOLO.



Using a series of Internet GIFs in a March Madness themed webpage, the White House asks users to vote for "your favorite reason (and GIF) to get covered." The GIFs range from Michelle Obama dunking a basketball with the Miami Heat to an Elmo doll falling off a shelf to ducks dancing under the title, "Birth Control is Free".

Of the many GIFs folks are supposed to vote on, one features the generational slogan "You Only Live Once" [YOLO] as a reason to sign up for health insurance through Healthcare.gov.

'YOLO' is normally used to excuse someone acting in a reckless or downright stupid fashion. So come to think of it, it is the perfect slogan for Obamacare after all.

Constitutions are not designed for metaphysical or logical subtleties, for niceties of expression, for critical propriety, for elaborate shades of meaning, or for the exercise of philosophical acuteness or judicial research. They are instruments of a practical nature, founded on the common business of human life, adapted to common wants, designed for common use, and fitted for common understandings.

YOLO is one of the stupidest memes from a generation that seems to specialize in stupidity.

You only Die once. That is more accurate.
