As Obamacare starts to work in 11 states, Tea Party group FreedomWorks announces a "Burn Your Obamacare Card" campaign. (5:11)

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

>> Stephen: WELCOME TO THE

REPORT.

GOOD TO HAVE YOU WITH US.

THANKS.

>> STEPHEN, STEPHEN, STEPHEN!

tephen: THANK YOU, LADIES

AND GENTLEMEN, THANK YOU SO

MUCH.

NATION, NATION, I HOPE YOU'RE

READY BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO LOCK

YOUR LUNGS AND BATTEN DOWN YOUR

COLON BECAUSE OBAMA-CARE IS

COMING.

THE INDIVIDUAL MANDATE TAKES

EFFECT ON NEW YEAR'S DAY WHICH

MEANS WHEN THE TIMES SQUARE BALL

DROPS, IT WILL IMMEDIATELY BE

CHECKED FOR LUMPS.

WORSE, FOLKS, WORSE, THIS

BLOATED BUREAUCRATIC PROGRAM

THAT WILL NEVER WORK HAS STARTED

WORKING.

>> THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND

HUMAN SERVICES ANNOUNCED IN 11

STATES AND WASHINGTON D.C.

PREMIUMS IN THE HEALTH CARE

MARKETPLACE REQUIRED BY OBAMA

CARE ARE TURNING OUT TO BE

NEARLY 20% LOWER THAN PROJECTED

FOR 2014.

>> Stephen: MAYBE SO.

BUT YOU'RE NOT GOING TO LIVE ANY

LONGER BECAUSE LET'S FACE IT,

MOST AMERICANS ARE GOING TO BLOW

THOSE SAVINGS ON CRONUTS.

AND THE DEATH SENTENCE, AND

OBAMA-CARE IS BEING IMPLEMENTED

DESPITE THE BEST EFFORTS OF

HOUSE REPUBLICANS WHO HAVE VOTED

TO SYMBOLICALLY REPEAL IT 39

TIMES.

I DON'T KNOW WHY IT'S NOT

WORKING.

MAYBE THEY NEED TO LOAD MORE

EMPTINESS INTO THEIR GESTURES.

I DON'T KNOW NOW THE KEY TO

IMPLEMENTING OBAMA-CARE IS THE

SO-CALLED INDIVIDUAL MANDATE

BECAUSE TO KEEP PREMIUM COSTS

DOWN OFFICIALS SAY THEY MUST

REGISTER 2.7 MILLION HEALTHY

PEOPLE BETWEEN THE AGES OF 18

AND 35 IN ORDER TO COUNTERACT

THE COSTS OF ENSURING SENIORS

AND PEOPLE WITH HEALTH PROBLEMS.

DON'T FALL FOR IT, YOUNG PEOPLE.

YOU DON'T NEED INSURANCE.

YOU'RE GOING TO BE YOUNG AND

HEALTHY FOREVER.

I MEAN, JUST LOOK AT ME.

I'M 19 LOOK AT THIS AWESOME

SKATEBOARD MOVE.

THAT IS CALLED POPPING A YOLO.

NOW FORTUNATELY, THE GODFATHER

OF THE TEA PARTY MOVEMENT

FREEDOMWORKS RECENTLY ANNOUNCED

A "BURN YOUR OBAMA CARE CARD"

CAMPAIGN.

THAT'S RIGHT, YOUNG ONES.

PROTEST THIS GOVERNMENT

OVERREACH BY LIGHTING YOUR

INSURANCE CARD ON FIRE.

BUT BE CAREFUL BECAUSE IF YOU

BURN YOURSELF YOU DON'T HAVE

HEALTH INSURANCE.

THERE'S ONLY ONE SMALL PROBLEM

WITH THIS BURN YOUR OBAMA-CARE

CARD PLAN.

THERE ARE NO SUCH THINGS AS

OBAMA-CARE CARDS.

BUT FREEDOMWORKS ISN'T LETTING A

LITTLE THING LIKE NOT EXISTING

GET IN ITS WAY AS THEIR VICE

PRESIDENT OF PUBLIC POLICY DEAN

CLANCY EXPLAINED.

>> FREEDOM WORKS IS GOING TO

DESIGN THE OBAMA-CARE CARD

OURSELVES.

WE ARE GOING TO PUT THAT ONLINE

AND SHARE IT WITH PEOPLE IN THE

HOPES THAT THEY WILL BURN IT,

TEAR IT UP, MARK ON IT.

>> Stephen: YES.

BURN IT.

TEAR IT.

MARK IT.

BUT FIRST PRINT IT, CUT IT AND

LAMINATE IT.

FREEDOMWORKS IS OPENING UP A

WHOLE NEW WORLD OF FIGHTING SIM

SYMBOLS OF INJUSTICE THAT DON'T

EXIST.

THEY SHOULD REFNT A BUS, ORDER

THEMSELVES TO SIT AT THE BACK OF

THE BUS AND THEN REFUSE TO SIT

AT THE BACK OF THEIR OWN BUS.

POWER.

THE POINT IS BURNING THINGS IS

ALWAYS AN ATTENTION GETTER.

AND FREEDOMWORKS SPECIAL EVENTS

MANAGER EMILIA HUNEKE-BERQUIST

EXPLAINED WHY BURNING THIS CARD

WAS SO NATURAL.

>> BACK IN THE DAY, JUST THE

SELECTIVE SERVICE ACT DECIDED

THAT EACH AND EVERY MALE IN THE

U.S. IS GOING TO NEED TO CARRY A

DRAFT CARD.

AND AS THE VIETNAM WAR GOT ARE

REALLY HEATED UP IN '65, '65

CITIZENS EVERYWHERE DECIDED TO

BURN THEIR CARDS IN PROTEST OF

THE ACTIONS BIG GOVERNMENT WAS

TAKING.

AND SO HERE WE ARE ABOUT 50

YEARS LATER, WE'RE FACING A NEW

KIND OF GOVERNMENT MANDATE UNDER

OBAMA-CARE AND SO WE'VE DECIDED

THAT WE'RE GOING TO TORCH OUR

OWN CARDS.

>> Stephen: PEOPLE FORGET THAT

ABOUT THE VIETNAM WAR.

THOSE HIPPIES WERE JUST FISCAL

CONSERVATIVES PROTESTING A BIG

GOVERNMENT PROGRAM.

I DON'T WANT TO SEE A WHOLE

GENERATION FORCED TO FIGHT

INFECTION IN SOME NEARBY COUNTY

HOSPITAL ONLY TO COME HOME IN

ONE PIECE WITH SOMETHING TO LIVE

FOR.

I MEAN, KEEP ON TRUCKING.

WELL I SAY IF THESE YOUNG PEOPLE

TRULY WANT TO RESIST OBAMA-CARE

THEY NEED TO DO WHAT VIETNAM

PROTESTORS DID IN THE '60s AND

MOVE TO CANADA.

BONUS: I HEAR THEY HAVE A GREAT
