Listen to Your Mother

A new ObamaCare ad for young people.

The administration is desperate to get young people to sign up for overpriced health insurance plans. Without them, the system simply won’t work. How desperate are they? They’ve recruited the moms of several Hollywood celebrities to get you darn kids to do what you’re told. “Young people feel invincible,” says one mom. “And until something actually happens, they will continue to feel invincible. And unfortunately things do happen.” To close things out, Michelle Obama says, “We nag you because we love you. Go to Healthcare.gov and enroll today.” The Wall Street Journal’s James Taranto, writing about other campaigns targeted at youth, makes the astute observation that “buying insurance is a quintessential expression of adult responsibility, and they might do better if they treated young adults as adults.” Liberalism is overbearing nanny statism and arrested development all wrapped up into one.
