President Obama was just featured in a Funny or Die sketch with Zach Galifianakis. The president’s goal is to reach young Americans who are uninsured and help them gain insurance through visiting healthcare.gov.
Several Republicans are very upset and jealous that President Obama can reach the under age 50 audience.
Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) said, “We’ve never been able to tap into that market. I could say he’s wasting his time, but he’s not. He’s actually making my job of making the health law seem unattractive to young adults even harder. How am I supposed to create a falsehoods around Obamacare if people are actually signing up for it and liking it?”
It seems the Funny or Die video has been a huge driver of traffic to the healthcare website since it has aired.
