The official deadline for the government-touted Healthy Young America Video contest, which is designed to promote the benefits of The Affordable Care Act (a.k.a. Obamacare), was September 23.
But we figure that, what with all the other delays associated with Obamacare, the kind judges at Young Invincibles will be willing to cut us a few days’ slack.
So here’s Reason TV and Remy’s “Obamacare Video Contest Song.”
Written and performed by Remy. Produced and animated by Meredith Bragg.
About 1.30 minutes. Scroll below for lyrics and visit http://reason.com/reasontv/2013/09/27/remy-obamacare-video-contest-song for links, downloadable versions, and more.

Causing thousands of layoffs
taking its toll?

folks who passed and defended it
see it and got waivers

Unions and businesses both in despair

your hours get cut
and your income goes down
and your premiums up
and the taxes you pay
with the cash you have left
go to pay for a stupid
video contest, touting
Unions and businesses both in despair
It’s hated by doctors and unions are mad.
Not since Billy Ray Cyrus
has someone made something this bad.

Obamacare premiums are going up next year by an average of 25%. The way people react to a story largely depends on how it’s presented and what they already think.

Positive Spin – Higher Obamacare Premiums
Some Republican voters want lawmakers to think twice before repealing Obamacare, despite President-elect Trump’s promises to dismantle the law. Dr. Sanjay Gupta reports.
