Freak Show: Koch Brothers Vision of Health Care Is Truly Bizarro

Evidently inspired by David Lynch, the Koch-backed Generation Opportunity - whose mission is to convince young people to opt out of the totalitarian evil that is health care - has released a seriously crackpot video as a sort of invite to an upcoming "Creepy Carenival" in D.C. that, "like  Obamacare itself, comes with a veneer of excitement but as soon as you begin to experience it, you realize you are being taken for a ride." Complete with mandatory vasectomies and that creepy Uncle Sam guy pretending to be an ob-gyn, the show will also hit the road in about a dozen states. WTF? These guys are getting very weird. The kicker: A new study shows that ads and other stunts by opponents of Obamacare - who have spent a half-billion dollars, outspending supporters 15-1 - may have actually increased enrollment. Good work guys.
