Creepy Carenival location on Google Maps

Generation Opportunity's "Creepy Carenival" is an interactive event that puts the failures of the "Affordable Care Act" (also known as Obamacare) on full display. Sold to young people as a benefit to our generation, Obamacare has nearly tripled our costs and unfairly burdened us with new and expensive mandates. The "Creepy Carenival," like Obamacare itself, comes with a veneer of excitement, but as soon as you begin to experience it, you realize you are being taken for a ride.



Creepy Hospital

Room #1: The Waiting Room

  • When government runs health care, the patient goes to the back of the line.
  • Enjoy waiting long in the doctor’s office? You’re going to love Obamacare!
  • Health care is on the way…or so you think it is.
  • Examples: Canadian Health Care
    • Canadian citizens waited an average of 18.2 weeks to see a physician in 2013.
    • In 2002, over 50 patients in the province of Ontario alone died while waiting for one heart surgery procedure.
  • Examples: Veterans Affairs Health Care
    • Over 57,000 veterans waited over 90 days for their first appointment at VA hospitals. Another 64,000 never received appointments after enrolling.
    • 82 veterans have died or are suffering serious injuries because they waited too long for colonoscopies or endoscopies.

Room #2: The Exam Room

  • Don’t want quality in health care? Let the government run it!
  • Government run health care: Putting bureaucrats in between you and your doctor.
  • Trust the IRS with your taxes? So why trust them with your health care!
    • The IRS is charged with implementing Obamacare: approving health care plans, administering subsidies, enacting penalties, and collecting individual's personal health information.
  • Obamacare utilizes a central data hub—an identity thief’s dream—to process individual’s purchase of health insurance and then shares this data with other government agents like the IRS. This data hub is extremely susceptible to hackers and cyber-attacks.
  • Obamacare adds an additional 75 million hours of paperwork for doctors and nurses.
  • Examples: Canadian Health Care
    • In spite of their government-sponsored health plans, two thirds of all Canadians have chosen to add private health insurance due to the inadequacy of the government-run system.
  • Examples: Veterans Affairs Health Care
    • Almost 1,000 veterans have died in the past decade as a result of subpar medical treatment. $845 million have been paid to their families in reparations.

Room #3: Health Care Panel

  • Don’t let government play doctor.
  • Like your health care plan? Too Bad. No health care for you!
  • Want an Obamacare waiver? Just run for Congress, become a hill staffer, or join a union.
    • 5 million people lost their health care plans due to Obamacare.
    • According to White House estimates, 93 million Americans will lose their current health care plan due to Obamacare.
    • Millions are losing their doctors.
    • President Obama granted over 1,800 waivers for unions and business.
