Boehner spoofs ObamaCare contest

The Obama administration contest, which is sponsored by the Department of Health and Human Services, will hand out $30,000 in prizes for the selected videos.

It is designed to reach out to so-called “young invincibles,” adults aged 18 to 29 who do not have health insurance because they see little need for it. Enrolling young people is critical for the new insurance exchanges that are set to launch in October.

Participants in the contest can submit videos in three different categories: A song, an animated short or a conventional live-action video. The creators of the most-viewed video in each theme will be awarded $3,000, with additional prizes for runners-up as well as an “Early Bird” prize for the best entrant submitted by Sept. 2.

Boehner’s entry will presumably be disqualified, as it isn't a video.
