Koch Bros to Young People: Opt Out of Obamacare or Bizarro Uncle Sam Will Get You With His Speculum

Abby Zimet

Those frisky Koch Brothers are at it again. Determined to convince college students to opt out of the coming socialist evil that is Obamacare exchanges, their Generation Opportunity has launched a baffling video campaign featuring a creepy Uncle Sam clown who threatens to inflict pelvic and prostate exams on, respectively, innocent young women and men. The videos will be followed by a college tour where "brand ambassadors" will hand out pizza and lies. Like how you should "empower yourself" by turning down health care, even if you have to pay a fine, because then you'll be free of government interference, especially women's health, which only the right can interefere with, and then you can suffer needlessly when you get sick and not have access to medical services you might need and then the terrorists will win and anyway freedom and tyranny and USA! USA! USA!

Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
