Obamacare Ads Encouraging Sexual Encounters

Ad Feedback

The Obamacare national marketing campaign is costing a whopping $700 million, but just as concerning to many is the kind of ads it's running nationwide.

The campaign's main targets are the working poor and young people. While the AARP is encouraging parents to "nudge" their kids about health insurance by sending e-cards to them, an ad for Colorado's insurance exchange is pitching birth control coverage for random sexual encounters.

With the tag line, "Let's get physical," this ad shows a young woman boasting about how "easy" it is to get birth control with Obamacare so all she has to worry about is getting a guy "between the covers."

Several other ads show young people involved in risky activities with kegs of beer.

Despite the controversial and expensive attempts to convince Americans that buying Obamacare is a good decision, Republicans and Democrats alike are still concerned about the numerous problems with the plan.

"Well, certainly the rollout itself and a malfunctioning website isn't the problem," former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin told "Fox News Sunday."

"Obamacare itself is the problem," she said. "You know, a road toward socialized medicine is unaffordable and unasked for, unpopular. It's not workable. That's the problem. People want Obamacare scrapped."

Rep. Keven McCarthy, R-Calif., said what's needed is to "start anew."

"You know what, on average, the latest report says 41 percent premium increase throughout the nation," McCarthy told CBS's "Face the Nation."

"And in five states, the premiums have gone up 100 percent," he said. "We have to scrap it and start anew and get a bipartisan consensus that actually puts the patient first and lowers the premiums."

Meanwhile, Congressional Democrats are also growing increasingly worried about the problems with Obamacare. They're ready to launch their own attacks against President Barack Obama if the health care website isn't fixed by the end of the month.

Politico reports many Democrats are getting ready to put distance between themselves and the White House because they're not confident the administration has a plan to fix Obamacare's failures or help them in next year's elections.

Many are worried that the problems could lead to their defeat in 2014.
