Your tax dollars are being used to advertise Obamacare. For example, to attract hip, young people to sign up for its insurance exchanges, Oregon will use your taxes to brand coffee cups with Obamacare advertisements. And in Kentucky, officials are planning a beer-and-bourbon tour to try to attract young people to enroll in Obamacare.
The Heritage Foundation’s Chris Jacobs explains why this is concerning:
[T]he gusher of federal spending on exchange grants and related promotional activities demonstrates the problem with Obamacare. At a time when our nation’s debt is approaching $17 trillion, using taxpayer funds to buy latte cups, sunscreen, and portable toilets represents a massive amount of waste. It’s yet another reason why Congress should act to defund Obamacare and refuse to spend a single dime on such frivolous expenditures

Do you agree with Heritage experts that Obamacare should be defunded and repealed?
