Obama Healthcare Contest Features Defaced Flag

Wednesday, 28 Oct 2009 04:20 PM

A mural of an American flag splattered with healthcare graffiti is among 20 finalists in a healthcare video contest run by Barack Obama’s campaign arm.

As the video continues, the flag is covered completely by black paint.

In the video – which is accompanied by the sound of a heart monitor pumping and then flat-lining – words such as “pre-existing conditions,” “homeless” and “death panel” ultimately obliterate the flag, which reappears on screen seconds later with the words “Health Will Bring Our Country Back to Life” on the blue field where the 50 stars usually are, according to Politico.

The 20 finalists in the “Health Reform Video Challenge” were chosen by a panel of “qualified” Democratic National Committee “employee judges,” according to the Organizing for American Web site.

A contestant whose video didn’t make the final-20 cut complains that a video “defacing the flag” won’t do much to help President Barack Obama or the Democrats sell health care reform, Politico reported.
