The White House, hoping that Obamacare can ride on the coattails of the NCAA basketball tournament, is featuring the GIF-heavy “16 sweetest reasons to #GetCoveredNow”:!/WhiteHouse/status/445598183901503488

Among the 16 “competitors” in the Obamacare “tournament” is this:!/charliespiering/status/445611169668009984

Yes, this is actually on the White House website as a reason to #GetCoveredNow:


Who hasn’t that happened to?

This has gone beyond embarrassment.!/BBaranowski/status/445610216789245952!/cheriebone/status/445612576613752832

And those are just two of the 16 “competitors” in “health care bracketology.”

“Baffled” doesn’t even begin to describe the reactions:!/kesgardner/status/445616645277376512!/RBPundit/status/445608529320480768!/Holden114/status/445608780961968128
