Your Obamacare tax dollars

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?

    In CT I have not seen any advertising airplanes.
    Perhaps the Know Betters in the government are going to attach it to our governor’s $25+ million private jet.
    In CT at least there always seems to be millions for giveaways to corporations and the politically connected, but the pot holes, bridges and road surfaces only seem to get worse.

    If they have so much “excess cash” to spend on advertising in PortaPotties (although I might support putting the ads on individual sheets of toilet paper), why are there the cash flow problems we are (finally) hearing about?? Shouldn’t we have enough to give freebie insurance to everyone like the uninformed expect?

      … but, oh so worth it!
      Just ask any “successful” politician.
      That is why every school, bridge, park, road, whatever the state/federal government builds — remember: You Didn’t Build That! — has someone’s name on it; somewhere there is the? sound of a payoff.

    Personally, I love to see the airplanes with banners flying behind for “Sea Tow” and Lobsters ?for $5 a lb. at “Shop-Rite”. What pleasure I will take to see our sky fouled by the flying banner telling us to sign up for Obamacare. ?Ah, sweet CT, what wonders we have here in the state of one party rule.
