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.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."

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

You only Die once. That is more accurate.
