CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"

ProgressNow Colorado and the Colorado Consumer Health Initiative has a series of social media ads that critics say promote promiscuity and drunkenness. The ads feature a 20-something girl on a mission to get laid, a group of “boy-will-be-boys” duped into believing that health insurance will save their beer money from being drained into high medical costs, and a group of Colorado girls promoting flu shots so they have more money for shotskis.

See for yourself at

In Let’s Get Physical a college-aged girl holds a packet of birth-control pills and stands next to a scruffy, self-assured 20-something man, with his hand wrapped around her waist.

Text to the right of the couple prints out her soliloquy …

“OMG, he’s hot! Let’s hope he’s as easy to get as this birth control. My health insurance covers the pill, which means all I have to worry about is getting him between the covers.” * I got insurance. [The asterisk points to the disclaimer at the bottom: The pill doesn’t protect you from STDs, condoms and common sense do that.]

Now you can too.

thanks obamacare!

Susie & Nate Hot to Trot

To some the ad implies that girls are sluts, and insurance makes it OK, because health care paid for by insurance will solve all problems caused by lack of common sense.

In Brosurance an inverted bro is mainlining from a keg while his bros hold his legs.

Keg stands are crazy.
Not having health insurance is crazier.
Don’t tap into your beer money to cover those medical bills.
We got it covered.

Now you can too.

thanks obamacare!

Rob, Zach, & Sam Bros for Life

In Get Your Shots, five twenty-something Colorado females are about to drink Shotskis — shots from a ski.

Shotskis keep us happy.
Flu shots keep us healthy.
Saving money on flu shots leaves us more money for fun shots.

We got insurance.
Now you can too.

There’s no asterisk for the latter alcohol-related themes that should highlight health risks related to alcohol consumption and common sense, such as how binge drinking causes accidental deaths, how DUI accidents kill thousands every year, how even small amounts of alcohol increase breast cancer risk, and how the long-term effects of alcohol include other cancers, chronic pancreatitis, alcoholic liver disease, hypertension, central nervous system and peripheral nervous system impairment, psychiatric disorders, and how excessive alcohol consumption can damage every organ in the human body.

Economic pundits say enrollment of young adults is important for the health care law to work because, say White House officials, they tend to have low anticipated medical costs and can keep insurance premiums lower.
