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.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams

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

You only Die once. That is more accurate.
Anyone who tells you you can't buy happiness has never been in a book store or an animal shelter.

You are the result of 3 billion years of evolutionary success. Act like it.
