One center-right group is offering a snarky behind-the-scenes peek at what life at the firm behind the Obamacare website is really like. On Wednesday, conservative organization YG Network released the video "Marge," jokingly suggesting that the Healthcare.gov contractor brought in a "crazy cat lady" to fix the buggy website.
"So we may have gotten a little technical with all the coding," begins the spot, with the "boss" talking to his cohorts. "So we decided to bring in a fresh, new, non-technical perspective." Enter Marge: a middle-aged, hamburger hat-wearing, cat sweatshirt-sporting annoyance. "I just love cat memes, don't you?" she says. "Do you all like to play Candy Crush?" she continues, receiving eyerolls from her colleagues.
The new video is part of YG Network's "This is Obamacare" series, in which all the videos make fun of the hypothetical Healthcare.gov firm. Additionally, the group is asking supporters to fax their Obamacare complaints to the White House.
In real life, a handful of contractors were responsible for the debacle and faced ire from even Democrats Wednesday on Capitol Hill.
"I want you to burn their fingers and make them pay for not being responsible," Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., told Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius during her testimony, according to Politico.
