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.

What’s hated by unions
has businesses wary
and dropping coverage
like the ‘Skins secondary?
Causing thousands of layoffs
taking its toll?
What’s so good for people
that they’re forced to enroll?
What’s a law that’s so good
folks who passed and defended it
see it and got waivers
to be exempted? It’s
like Olestra, at first
it sounded hip
but we quickly found ourselves
dealing with a whole lot of sh…
Unions and businesses both in despair
So to recap, young people,
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” has expanded health insurance for millions — but as an excerpt from FRONTLINE’s “Divided States of America” shows, its passage also contributed to years of political polarization.

“Divided States of America” premieres Tues. Jan. 17 and Wed. Jan. 18 from 9-11 p.m. EST / 8-10 p.m. CST on PBS and online: http://to.pbs.org/2eOfzLn
From veteran filmmaker Michael Kirk and his team, “Divided States” will offer an in-depth view of the partisanship that has gridlocked Washington and charged the 2016 presidential campaign, the rise of populist anger on both sides of the aisle, and the racial tensions that have erupted throughout the country.

Last year, the Trump administration stopped making cost sharing payments to insurance companies who operate on the Obamacare exchanges, and all that saved government loot has now gone to increased subsidies. A recent court decision means insurance companies will be able to recoup a lot of that money. Healthcare Triage (with thanks to Nick Bagley for the legal interpretation) has the details.

Healthcare Triage is a new series from Dr. Aaron Carroll and the team behind Crash Course and Mental Floss Videos. In this episode, Aaron gets a visit from noted hypochondriac John Green, and allays some of his fears about Obamacare. He provides an overview of what is going to happen on October 1st, when the Affordable Care Act, AKA Obamacare, goes into effect. Aaron will talk stuff like individual mandates, subsidies, and the three-legged stool of Obamacare, which is not a real stool. You’ll learn who exactly is affected by the changes on October 1st, get a brief tour of healthcare.gov, and learn a little about alien alternative medicine, which also isn’t even real. The rest of the video is totally real. All this, plus the aforementioned metaphorical furniture should make this pretty hard to resist.

The House of Representatives has voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare. The replacement bill, The American Health Care Act, still needs to pass the Senate before President Trump can sign it into law.
