Skip to comments.First Lady Says Obamacare Needed to “Save Young People from Their Own Stupidity”

In an interview on the Tonight Show, Michelle Obama unveiled the latest effort of the Administration to induce young and healthy adults to sign up for health insurance by pointing out how stupid this target cohort is.
If you look at how young people behave its clear that the vast majority of them are knuckleheads, she asserted. They cant be trusted to do this simplest taskslike making a sandwichwithout hurting themselves. Their choices for leisure activities are typically dangerous and irresponsibleyou know, smoking dope, getting drunk and then getting behind the steering wheel of a car. Were trying to get the message to these youngsters that they need the insurance the Affordable Care Act requires them to buy.
Michelle admitted that the low enrollment rates for this group are a cause for concern. In hindsight, our expectation that these folks could be compelled to sign up of their own volition under threat of a penalty was probably overly optimistic. Educating them about their responsibility is a difficult and likely hopeless undertaking. We really need to find some way of making the sign-ups and the extraction of fees automatic.
Perhaps, though, these young adults arent as clueless as the Administration thinks. True enough, they voted overwhelmingly for Obama. On the other hand, in a recent study, researchers from the Stanford University of Medicine found that among those suffering traumatic injuries, uninsured patients get better care than those who are insured. It seems that those with insurance are routed to hospitals on their plan while those without insurance are taken to the nearest trauma center.

No Ms Obama, most young folks are not as stupid as your husband... Hate to break that to you.
So what you are saying Moochelle, is that, the public school system is a huge failure?
Would I be correct in my assumption?
Save young people from their own stupidity. come now who is going to save America from the stupidity of those whom elected him.
Isn’t it a No No to call the useful idiots knuckleheads to their own faces?
How many thousands did you spend on your dress today, Mooch?
Save Young People from Their Own Stupidity
Yes, isn’t that the purpose of most socialist and fascist government policies, to save citizens from their own stupidity?
In this world, not having health insurance is not necessarily stupid.
My goodness, just imagine the enormity of the government program needed to save us from her stupidity.
Admitting that the young are stupid is exactly why the left is covetous of their votes.
... or at least it's supposed to be ...
Satire is when something isn't true. This is fake but accurate.
It’s TOO LATE!The Little A$$H*LES Elected Obongo TWICE!!!!!
They proved their stupidity when they voted for your bisexual husband. Now many of them have started realizing just how stupid they were.
John doesnt write satire anymore. He’s a fortune teller.
