A typical city street.
A man is walking down the side walk, obviously injured.
He stops outside a doctor’s office and opens the door.
Before he steps inside Doctor #1, dressed like a silent movie bad guy, twirling his handlebar mustache, stops him and points at a sign:
We don’t take cash or credit card payments. Insurance only!
Voiceover: Have you always wanted healthcare, but just found it too difficult…
Patient #1: Man… I got to go get a job?
Voiceover: …then Obamacare is for YOU!
Patient #1: *looks shocked and happy*
Doctor #1 stands aside, looking dejected.
Patient #1 puffs up in happiness and strides inside.
Doctor #1 goes inside and then can be seen taking the sign out of the window.
Voiceover: That’s right! With Obamacare, you don’t NEED to be employed in order to get coverage, because good ol’ Uncle Sam will just pick up your tab!
An examination room.
A lady sits on the examination table in a hospital gown.
A doctor sits on a stool next to her, reading from her charts.
Patient #2: *looks at the camera* But what about me? I have a pre-existing condition…
Voiceover: You’re covered TOO, thanks to those healthier than you and, of course, good ol’ Uncle Sam!
Patient #2: *looks shocked and happy* I AM?! Gee, thanks Obamacare!
Patient #2 and Doctor #2 both look at the camera, smile, wink and give a thumbs up.
A middle class kitchen.
Student #1 is at the refrigerator, loading up on sandwich fillings.
Over his shoulder, we can see Mom #1 & Dad #1, sitting at the kitchen table, perusing vacation brochures.
Student #1: Thanks to Obamacare, I can stay on my parents’ insurance until I’m twenty-six!
Student #1 winks and smiles.
Dad #1 mumbles as he scrunches up the brochures and dumps them in a nearby waste paper basket, then storms out of the room.
Mom #1: *upset* Thanks, Obamacare…
Mom #1 starts crying.
Student #1, turns to look at her, turns back to the camera, winks again and nods, in the fashion of Joey from “Friends”
Voiceover: That’s right! Under Obamacare, you’re kids are kids until they’re twenty-six!
Old Lady #1 and Pharmacist #1 are stood on each side of the counter.
Pharmacist #1: Here’s your free birth control, Mrs. Jones.
Voiceover: With Obamacare, all of our policies provide FREE birth control!
Mrs. Jones: *looks a little confused* But I’m eighty…
Pharmacist #1: You’re eighty?! *presses a red button on the wall*
Two men appear at the lady’s side and each take an arm.
Man #1 & Man #2: Come with us Mrs. Jones, we’ll take care of you.
Pharmacist #1, Man #1 & Man #2 all wink at the camera.
As they walk off, we can see the initials IPAB across the back of the white lab coats of Man #1 and Man #2.
Voiceover: So, call now, with your Social Security number, earnings information and bank account details, and you too could be signed up for Obamacare!
