Promoting the ObamaTax

We've been wondering for a while now, why - if the ObamaTax is such a grand bargain - is it necessary to advertise it so heavily, and to enlist everyone from Sheriff Andy to Michael Jordan to shout its praises from the rooftop. Not only have we received no answer, but Ms Shecantbeserious and her minions insist on doubling - nay, tripling - down.

Item the first: A gorgeous, impeccably designed ObamaTax bumper sticker (to compliment the Co-Exist one on your Prius). We've provided our take on this work of art above.

Item the Second: In keeping with the whole "community organizing" spirit of the Obamastration, Ms Kathy has enlisted folks like "Nahla Kayali ... among the first wave of 2,000 community organizers in California getting trained to persuade more than 1 million uninsured people in the state to sign up for [the train wreck]." Since the success of the whole risky scheme seems to rest on the shoulders of young people (whose lower expected utilization is deemed essential in offsetting the costs of older folks), this seems a no-brainer [ed: I see what you did there].

Item the Third: One of the biggest challenges to those first two may be this little tidbit:

"IRS employees have a prominent role in Obamacare, but their union wants no part of the law."


Turns out, even the folks tasked with enforcing the (Evil) Mandates aren't keen on participating. And who can blame them? After all, they're used to getting gold-plated (and low-to-them-cost) coverage through the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program. Wouldn't want to lose that, now, would we?
