SPRINGFIELD, Ill. — In Illinois, painted skulls and merry skeletons will be the new imagery of the zombie-like Obamacare website.
Illinois is promoting Obamacare with a massive, statewide outreach program that will include tying the president’s signature policy piece to the Day of the Dead.
“When you talk about honoring the dead, it is also a celebration of life,” Tomas Ramirez, an outreach counselor at the Pilsen Wellness Center, told Illinois Watchdog. “How does (the Day of the Dead) connect to the Affordable Care Act? By having an opportunity for health care, you have an opportunity to live.”
Pilsen Wellness Center will market the ACA, or Obamacare, at this weekend’s Day of the Dead celebrations in Chicago’s mainly Hispanic neighborhoods.
“It’s not Halloween. It’s not dressing up. It’s not monsters. It’s not witches. It’s not ghosts. (The Day of the Dead) is acknowledging ancestors, acknowledging life and acknowledging community,” Ramirez said.
