As the October 1 enrollment date for the Affordable Care Act creeps closer each day, one had to expect some feeble pushback from conservatives upset that a black liberal passed a healthcare bill they actually kind of like. But did you expect Uncle Sam with a creepy rictus all up in your uterus and armed with a speculum? Probably not.
Say hello to a new pair of ads from Generation Opportunity, a conservative group being funded in part by the Koch brothers. Generation Opportunity is a conservative group whose purpose is to sabotage Obamacare by convincing healthy young people to not enroll in the law's health insurance exchanges, thus making it difficult to subsidize elderly people in the pools. After getting defeated in the fight to prevent Obamacare from becoming a law, the Koch brothers' new goal is to injure the program by making its exchanges unsustainable. It's like losing in the Olympics and then kneecapping your opponent so he can't stand and retrieve his medal. Politics: so noble.
The gendered ads, as you can see below, don't offer much more than scare tactics in the way of substance, but such is the tone of the contemporary political sphere: "DO YOU WANT THE GOVERNMENT IN YOUR VAGINA, LADY? AND YOU, BRO, DO YOU WANT UNCLE SAM IN YOUR ASS? WELL, DO YOU?"
