Of course, when the government spends money, that money comes from you, the taxpayer…assuming, of course, you are a piece of the 51% of tax filers in this country who are actually paying taxes. So, as a public service, I thought you would like to know how your government is spending your tax dollars, assuming you are paying any, to promote Obamacare.
In Connecticut, selling Obamacare involves renting an airplane. Oregon might try to reel in hipsters with branded coffee cups for their lattes. And in neighboring Washington, the effort could get quite intimate: The state is interested in sponsoring portable toilets at concerts in an effort to reach uninsured young adults.
As I don’t live in Connecticut, those of you who do will just have to let the rest of us know how that plane rental thing works out. And, as to the state of Washington’s port-a potty sponsorship, I’m not so sure I can get my arms around that, but perhaps someone from Washington has a different perspective.
However, a free branded coffee mug sounds great.
I’m not so sure that would entice me to sign up for Obamacare, but, as I am paying for said coffee mug as a taxpayer, am I eligible to receive one?
