You must remember the glorious campaign trotted out last July by the old white farts who run FreedomWorks. They were inspiring young adults across America to print out “Obamacare cards” that resembled Vietnam-era draft cards, and then the young people were to make videos of themselves burning the cards, and this would create the Big Mo of young folks turning their backs on getting health insurance. Because Freedom.
Talk about running up a flag and nobody saluting. After extensive searching I found ONE home-made Obamacare burning video:
The genius who made this says he has been healthy for six years and never needed insurance. Good thing he didn’t burn himself with the blowtorch.
It appears the Burn Obamacare Cards blog at FreedomWorks.org hasn’t been updated since August 30. The original #Burnthecard page now is just a donation page, and the information I was able to read in August is no longer accessible. Maybe you can get to it if you make a donation, but I’m not trying the experiment.

At some point, even the Koch brothers must have realized we were just laughing at them.
