The Department of Health and Human Services has crowned a YouTube video entitled “Forget About The Price Tag” as the grand prize winner in a contest meant to encourage young people to sign up for Obamacare.Video of Erin McDonald
The video contest, announced in August — in partnership with a group called Young Invincibles — encouraged participants to produce clips filled with pro-Obamacare messaging.
HHS’s grand prize-winning video, announced Monday by the White House, features a young woman named Erin McDonald singing an Obamacare-loving version of Jessie J’s hit single, “Price Tag.”
"You are young and wild and free but you need to stay healthy .... Ain’t about the, uh, cha-ching cha-ching. Ain’t about the, yeah, bla-bling bla-bling. Affordable Care Act. Don’t worry ’bout the price tag."

What's Next for the Winner?
For her efforts Erin McDonald wins a paltry $2000. I am quite sure Mish readers could come up with far more than that to get her to sing "Audit the Fed".
Alas, that can never happen.
Erin has a beautiful voice and just won the political jackpot and probably an invite to the WhiteHouse.
More importantly, I bet she gets a multimillion dollar contract from some record company to sing whatever the heck she wants (and I highly doubt it's about Obamacare or the Fed).
