Vox's take on Obamacare's Individual Mandate
Here's the link: http://www.vox.com/how-obamacares-individual-mandate-works/
I know the Vox news site isn't fully functional, but I found this video while looking around. The animation style, the narration - all very well done. It distills what I've been trying to explain to my family and friends in about two minutes, in an open and non-partisan way.
Given how they explained a somewhat tricky subject like the individual mandate, I'd be curious to see a video on America's national debt or the situation in Crimea.
