I'm sure the Left would have had no problem with taxpayer money going towards cash prizes to promote the US going into Iraq, right?
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services will award $30,000 in taxpayer-funded cash prizes for a video contest designed to promote Obamacare among young people, according to an HHS spokesperson.
HHS and Young Invincibles are allowing individuals to create videos in three different categories.
“The ‘You Are Not Invincible’ theme lets you to show off your creative and wacky side. Videos should be a short skit that shows a time when a young person would need health insurance. Accidents happen. Just ask Scarlet,” says the Young Invincibles website under a short video of a female falling off of a table.
“I can only hope she had health insurance after this infamous wipeout. Entrants are encouraged to go big but stay safe!”
The next theme is “perform a song” about “health insurance or even create the next viral parody.”
The website provides the infamous Will Ferrell Saturday Night Live cowbell skit as an example to follow.
Animation is the third category.
“If you have serious computer animation skills, you could create an engaging, informative video about critical facts of Obamacare,” says the Young Invincibles website.
The deadline for submissions is September 23, 2013. The health insurance marketplace exchanges are set to open nationally on Oct 1. The public will be able to vote for their favorite videos between Oct. 1 and Oct. 15.
