Connecticut Obamacare Exchange Spends $75,000 on Hideous Paintings


This is your tax money hard at work in Connecticut. Remember, all of the state exchanges are subsidized by Federal tax dollars. So, congrats America, we just paid over $75,000 for three paintings. The above photo is one of the murals, and if the other two are just as bad, we didn't get very much bang for our buck.

From the National Review:
     AccessHealthCT, the quasi-public state agency that runs Connecticut's Obamacare exchange, spent nearly $75,000 to commission three murals, plus nearly $4,000 to have one of them installed.
     ...  
     Just before Thanksgiving, state officials gathered at Optimus Health Care in Bridgeport to unveil the Cornier mural, which, according to the New Haven Register, is intended to inspire New Haven residents to "embrace health and wellness."

Seriously, my eight year-old cousin produces better artwork than this, and I assume he'll work for at least half the price. I can't help but notice that there are only black people depicted in the painting. Racist much?
