Yo Quiero Obamacare?

Comes now the Kaiser Foundation and the Kalifornia Endowment that wants to make sure non-English speaking inhabitants know about Obamacare.

This animated clip is designed to capture the attention of those who live here but have not mastered our native tongue and make sure they know about the coming "free" health care.

Although only 16 percent of the U.S. population is Latino, Latinos represent 31 percent of the non-elderly uninsured. And only 35 percent of the Latino population nationwide receives their health insurance coverage through an employer.

”Too many Californians still do not know how the new health law impacts them and yet nearly 5 million stand to benefit from it,” said Robert K. Ross MD, president and CEO of The Endowment. “Many of those individuals are from our Spanish-speaking community. This translation is an example of our commitment to reach and educate millions of Latino and lower-income individuals about how our health care system is changing and how they can take advantage of the new provisions under the new law.”

5 million huh?

Why don't they just do like the fast food restaurants and provide cards with pictures of what hurts. Visitors can just point to the afflicted part and receive care.
