The Obamacare fight has gone from Capitol Hill to the Supreme Court and finally now to the truest test of all: Millenials’ social media apps.
Yes, Creepy Uncle Sam is back – and he’s on your cell phone screen. The conservative Generation Opportunity has launched a new campaign on Snapchat, a smartphone application that allows users to send and recieve videos and pictures that will automatically erase after a preset time, featuring their lead Patriot in a social media blitz designed to convince Millennials of the dangers of the Affordable Care Act.
Judging by Opportunity Generation’s recent tweets and vines, we’re looking forward to posts of “Creepy Uncle Sam” partying with college students, even if the message to “opt out” doesn’t last much longer than a ten second Snap.
But others, like President Obama, don’t seem to share our enthusiasm. Last week at a White House youth summit, President Obama made a veiled swipe against the $750,000 conservative campaign featuring the creepy patriot, saying: “that’s a really bizarre way to spend your money.”
