Obamacare promo video contest winner: ‘Don’t worry ’bout the price tag’

In yet another attempt to lure millennials to enroll in Obamacare, a Department of Health and Human Services contest announced the grand prize-winning video Monday – ironically titled, “Forget About the Price Tag.”

The contest sought submissions designed to attract younger, healthier applicants needed to make the program a success.  According to a release from the White House:

Back in August 2013, Young Invincibles, in partnership with the Department of Health and Human Services, launched the Healthy Young America Video Contest, an effort to mobilize young people to help educate and inform one another about the Affordable Care Act. Participants submitted their videos, the public weighed in, and a finalist was selected in each of three categories: “You Are Not Invincible,” original song performance, and animation.

Three finalists were chosen in each of the three categories, according to the Young Invincibles website. Finalists were awarded $3,000 for first place and $2,500 each for second and third place. The grand prize winner received an additional $2,000.

Erin McDonald, who won the “Perform a Song” category and ultimately the grand prize, is featured in the top video singing: “Ain’t about the, uh, cha-ching cha-ching. Ain’t about the, yeah, bla-bling bla-bling. Affordable Care Act. Don’t worry ’bout the price tag.”

    Is she looking for her brain?

    wow that sucks

  • James Redman

    The lady has a lot of learning to look out for small talk given by people, like Obama, in plans with secrets.

  • Nancy C.

    I don’t blame her for trying to “WIN’ $5K. I want to know if she is enrolled and paying her monthly premium! IMO, the whole UCA (unaffordable care act) will implode. How many “youth” will chose monthly insurance payments over their I Phone, partying or new clothes??? The conservatives have the right idea for all of us to get real affordable healthcare, not to limit insurance companies to sell insurance in a particular state, let insurance companies be allowed to offer health insurance in every state, this will cause prices to become competitive and will drive the costs down.

    Those are the most disgusting video clips I have ever seen. Those people need to put their talent to better use.

    REMEMBER WHEN HEALTHCARE WAS CHEAP? I’m old enough to remember raising taxes while lying promising not to would cost you an election and if gas was little high you were in with big oil. Today high gas prices, high taxes, high healthcare prices and lying are the hit of the moment.
