Got insurance? STDs, unplanned pregnancy, guilt, depression?

To the editor: I saw an ad for Obamacare the week of Dec. 20, 2013, with Susie and Nate....

There is no need for concern in regard to the ACA. Supreme Health Genius Barack Hussein Owe’Bummer will continue delaying its implementation for the remainder of his wasted presidency. Why? Because the ACA is far and away the most unpopular legislative disaster ever foisted upon the American people.

Mr. French, should have done a little more research instead of blaming President Obama for the ads. None of the ads Layle referenced were authorized by the President, White House or Health and Human Services. NEWS FLASH: President Obama is not endorsing risky behavior! The ads were created and financed by two nonprofit groups in Denver "ProgressNow Colorado Education" and "Colorado Consumer Health Initiative".

Truthfully, I'm absolutely shocked that sex is being used in advertising. I'm also shocked that people that age actually engage in the risky behavior portrayed in the ads. Really? College students drink beer from kegs? What happened to beer pong? Well the good news is that, according to Todd Aiken of the Tea Party, unmarried woman having sex don't need to worry about getting pregnant - they can just shut that whole thing down. Party on!

So, according to westline, if an individual performs an immoral act, its the fault of our President and not the fault of the individual, the parents or guardians.

Now THAT'S a pathetic line of reasoning.

The biggest problem in this world of ours is that the human poulation ridiculously out of control. IMHO, anthing that helps "prevent" pregnancies is a very good idea. Especially when it comes to babies having babies.

Take a population of 10,000 easily-influenced young ladies. Their president of 8 years does what he can to stop abortion. Scenario 2: take a similar group. Their president of 8 years does what he can to make it easier to get, and more acceptable. He even has taxpayers footing the bill for this terrible act. How many more babies get killed under the 2nd situation? (how many deaths are on Obama's shoulders) How does this attitude change the respect for life in this nation?

blasphemer - given current fertility trends, global population is set to hit a plateau at about 10billion or so. Not exactly a doomsday scenario...

hartman - check your "facts". The ads were sponsored by the two Colorado-based non-profits, but they were paid for by Obamacare. A simple phone call to both organizations confirmed this. You sure are getting lazy

"ProgressNow Colorado and Colorado Consumer Health Initiative, supporters of Colorado's health insurance exchange, said their "Got insurance?" campaign was paid for with donations and individual contributions, like their organizations. They also denied association with state agencies."

"I know some people are saying this is a taxpayer-funded campaign and that we're somehow connected to Connect for Health Colorado, but that is just not the case," said Amy Runyon-Harms, executive director of ProgressNow Colorado." -Denver Post website

I'll try to say this as nicely and sincerely as possible rangeral so as not to offend you. And I didn't need to make a simple phone call confirm this. rangeral, you are a flat out liar.

Hartman, your allegiance to King Hussein Obama is amazing. This has his administrations tracks all over it. It is exactly the type of ad they pay for to test the waters. If it is well received by the public then they come out as authors of the ad. If it is not well received they blame it on the local organization. This was paid for with Obamacare funds. Westline is absolutely correct, this president will do more to erode the moral fiber of our country than any other man in history.

And hartmann, shouldn't it be making your skin crawl to be defending the scum that came up with this ad, whether it be Obama funded or not? Let me get this straight. You defend the "critters" that created this disgusting ad; you defend the lifestyle of the "critters" this ad is aimed at; AND you defend abortion? And then you have the incredulous gall to state in the same breath that abortion is NOT birth control? Wow!

hartman - I actually made two calls, one to each organization - their phone numbers are on the websites - and got the same answer - the so-called donations came from the federal government.

Yet you continue to spout propaganda from the socialist websites. Are you brain-washed or what? Do you ever have an original thought or are you worried about the thought police?

Your pants should be catching fire about right now. I hope you have Obamacare.

By the way, you still refuse to say what healthcare you have and who is paying for it. Are you ashamed?

rangeral, USA Today, the Denver Post, ABC News and Factcheck dot org are NOT socialist websites. Another lie, Pinocchio.

westline, scout, NBHH, rangeral, don’t live in the real world. Bad behavior including promiscuity, sexual innuendo, jokes about excessive alcohol consumption & drug use appear in all manner of print and digital media 24 hours a day. Since when is it the responsibility of advertisers to teach the populace about consequences and responsibility? If our nation’s youth are learning how to be responsible adults via advertising, I’d say that’s a parenting problem.

The fact they blame Obama is a testament to their inability to apply reason or fact to ANY given issue. It’s simply another excuse to attack our President even when facts confirmed he had no role in authorizing or paying for the ad. I suspect they are jealous of the man and what he has been able to accomplish, especially given the sorry state of affairs he inherited.

Here is Scenario #3 westline: We twice elect an individual that is a member of a minority group and raised by a single mother who, through perseverance and hard work, becomes President of the U.S.. Under intense public scrutiny, he is raising, with the help of his wife, two intelligent well mannered daughters. By all appearances, he is energetic, scholarly, kind, selfless, eloquent, faithful, honest, and possesses a keen sense of humor. By every measure, he is an outstanding role model for millions of individuals regardless of gender, color or creed. Except of course, for the small-minded individuals whose own inability to achieve success causes them to cast aspersions on those who have.

"I suspect they are jealous of the man and what he has been able to accomplish, especially given the sorry state of affairs he inherited."

Yep, hartmann, I'm jealous of a man who has made the "sorry state of affairs he inherited" 10 trillion times worse, and has turned a once proud nation into a laughing stock around the globe, and has twisted everything that's wrong with our nation-laziness, lack of morals, financial irresponsibility-into something to be glorified.

hartmann, come on. Would I actually be jealous of that?

USA News, The Denver Post and ABC are all liberal news sources and I would expect them to continue to toe the party line. Hartman you seem to ignore the calls Ranger made to the originations and the response he received. Yes I do live in the real world and am familiar with all the bad behavior you listed. This is just the first time I have seen the federal government promote such behavior in order to advance their policies. The ad in question was a joint effort posted by local organizations and paid for with Obamacare funds, that he stole from Medicare.

Geeze Hartman, are you going to propose to him next ? You did leave out a couple qualifications he does not possess. He is definitely not honest, not a good manager, does not respect or abide by the constitution of our country, he has no experience, his leadership skills are the joke of the globe and he is a socialist. This country was not founded on socialism.

"We twice elect an individual that is a member of a minority . . . . blah, blah, blah." No, not WE, hartmann. All that sentence demonstrates is that slightly over half of the electorate vote, being clueless about the risks of electing the person they are voting for; vote for that person because the reward is government handouts; vote for him because he is a minority; or maybe they just vote for him because he is "cute". Shouldn't those reasons for electing a President kinda scare you, hartmann?

I always find that when hit with the truth, hartman goes off on another tangent. One of his favorites is the race card and yes here it is today.

At best Obama is incompetent.

I have a wonderful wife, great children and grandchildren and here you go calling us names. I'll match my accomplishments with yours any day.

Are you in jail - is that why you won't talk about your healthcare?

Please Hartman I almost puked up my late lunch,(no time to stop with these wonderful roads today) reading your glowing adjectives of Mr. Obama. If I may I really think you missed a few that more aptly describe Barry. Like arrogant, dishonest, narcissistic, and as Al already said "at best" incompetent.

That’s all you guys (or gals) have? Since my last post, all I have read in the comment boxes is your typical empty rhetoric lacking logic and fact. None of you can provide anything of substance to challenge my statements. The description of Obama is factual, void of preconceived notions. Many who have met and spent time with Obama describe him using the same terms. Evidently rangeral is unable to distinguish between a "race card" and “member of a minority”. Those terms are not interchangeable.

“I have a wonderful wife, great children and grandchildren and here you go calling us names.” No rangeral, I only referred to YOU as Pinocchio, not your family, based on your penchant for spreading falsehoods even after evidence proved you wrong.
