This is not a headline from The Onion. It was an email I received yesterday from the "team" at Healthcare.gov. Even better than the headline was the message that followed.
Mother's Day might be behind us but it's not too late to give your mother a special gift. Let the moms in your life know that health insurance is available through Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP)
Wait, I'm confused? Wasn't the last enrollment blitz focused on mothers telling their children to sign up? Obviously that didn't work since Obamacare fell way short of enrolling the necessary number of Young Invincibles.
I guess the "Nag Toolkit" used in Rhode Island didn't work either. Although I highly doubt any mom would want to use sites like Tinder, OK Cupid, Vine, SnapChat, or Twitter to inundate their kids.
