Millennial Madness: Why Americaís Youth Donít Want Obamacare
townhall.com ^ | 3/19/2014 | Ashley Pratte

Posted on 03/19/2014 6:23:04 AM PDT by rktman

In a desperate ploy to enroll more young people in Obamacare, the White House put out “16 Sweet Reasons to Get Covered”. The Obama administration is realizing just how unpopular Obamacare is with young people and is pulling out all the stops with public relations to try to get those “coveted” millennials enrolled by the deadline of March 31.

Don’t even have to read it. They don’t want it because they are low risk and don’t need it.
And, its a lot of MONEY.
The government needs them to pay. They don’t need to pay.
Case closed.

They wanted it when they thought it was free.

You read my thoughts. They thought it was FREE and have no interest otherwise.

They were mad when they found out not only was the free lunch from michelle’s garden, it was only available after paying the admission surcharge.

According to an ad running here in NV, it’s almost free since the government is gonna pick up a lot of the tab. Uh, let’s see. Now where does the govt get it’s money? Hmmmm. Oh yeah. It’s from the taxpayers. I guess the ads are targeted at the zombies that believe the fable about the money tree growing outside the white house. Low/no info types will buy into that right away. “Hey, the government is paying for it.” I get “a little” cranked up everytime I see the ad.

Bingo. They are only interested in FREE healthcare.

And throughout the ‘08 campaign, Obama let them go right on thinking that is what this would be.

Geez. I wonder who they got to tend the garden while she’s on a peace mission to China. We all know she normally tends to it herself everyday. And spring planting is just around the corner.

This video explains it very clearly. And it was made when health insurance was CHEAP and we were in a booming economy.

They want it, they just want someone else to pay for it.

Maybe because the law allows a maximum insurance price differential for age of three times, when the actual cost differential between someone in their twenties vs. someone in their sixties is ten times. That means young people will have to pay three times their actual expected cost for their insurance so granny can get a small discount.

Even a graduate of the Common Core curriculum knows the difference between "free 'n' universal" and "affordable".

Granted, they may not know what the meaning of "universal" is. They might think that means they can get health care anywhere in our solar system but they know full well what "free" means.

And, now, as it turns out, even Ubama admits it's not affordable.

Suckerrrrrrrs.

Perhaps they also went to the website and noted the $6,000 deductible on those policies...

Suckers!

They fell for the hope and change and transparency, too. Fools!

Maybe they became a little wiser in the ways of the world after this experience. That is why many young Democrats become conservative as they get older.

Duh!

And they can stay on their parents plan until age 26 and they are probably not making enough money and will get the subsidy. End result: no one is paying into the system and everyone is getting subsidies.

Whomever created the ACA must be really stupid.

No, whomever created the ACA knows that most Americans are stupid.

Most young idealists fall for the left’s siren song of

“don’t you want to help people?”

Of course they do, we all do. At their age, though, they lack the resources (or the gumption) to do so and like the idea of “doing it through the government”.

Advocacy-based righteousness.

Some mature out of it, some don’t.

Close. Whomever created the ACA thinks they are the most brilliantly gifted intellect in the history of the planet.

Rush is right. This turkey has been bouncing around some desk drawer in a think-tank for thirty years.

The millenials are finding out the hard way that there is no such thing as a free lunch.
