Obama admin: Honor the spirit of Independence Day by convincing your family this gov’t mandate is awesome; Updated

The Obama administration wants you to remind your family and friends this 4th of July that nothing honors the spirit of the occasion more than a gigantic government mandate. Obamacare’s the best thing that ever happened to independence, even if some of your family members are in denial:

The Obama administration wants you to bring a side of healthcare politics to your family picnic this weekend.

After ObamaCare’s big win at the Supreme Court last week, federal health officials are serving up some tips about talking to family members who may be less-than-enthused that ObamaCare is here to stay.

“You should be prepared when Aunt Janine says something like, ‘Obamacare hasn’t helped anyone!’” a spokesman for the Department of Health and Human Services wrote in a blog post on Thursday.

For instance, if your Uncle Ted starts calling Obamacare a train wreck, you should calmly explain that he’s “gotten ahold of some old talking points,” the spokesman recommends.

One of the first afflictions the proponents of Obamacare hope to eradicate is situational awareness. Any efforts to make relatives believe that the Declaration of Independence begins “we hold these mandates to be self-evident” will be made more difficult when “Aunt Janine” and “Uncle Ted” launch bottle rockets at their family’s rogue member of the Pajama Boy Army until he goes away.


You just know the HHS is going to see this and say “why didn’t we think of that!?”

Update II:

Happy 4th everybody!

I tried to lecture my family about Obamacare today, but it didn’t go very well:

And that was the reaction BEFORE the drinking started.
