Co-Eds Call Obamacare Ad 'Sleazy,' 'Creepy-Looking,' 'Satire...Against Obamacare'

One of the new Obamacare ads created by the Colorado exchange is pretty racy. It shows a young women holding birth control pills and saying she can get the guy next to her "between the covers" thanks to Obamacare:

"OMG, he's hot! Let's hope he's as easy to get as this birth control. My health insurance covers the pill, which means all I have to worry about is getting him between the covers." Her closing line: "Thanks, Obamacare!"

MRCTV's Dan Joseph wanted to know how the students at American University felt about the ad - and got some very interesting responses.

It seems that most of the guys said they were fine with it.

The ladies, not so much:

  • "Sleazy"
  • "Creepy-looking"
  • "It belittles women."
  • "They're assuming that all of us would fall for a hot man like that, as if that is the most persuasive way to get us to buy insurance."

A few thought it was offensive because it portrayed the young woman as using the guy just for sex, and noted that it doesn't accurately explain why young people should buy health insurance.

"It seems like a satire made by people who are against Obamacare," one co-ed concluded.
