Kind of interesting, in that this is the only age group giving Obama high approval.

I think the Left is finding O is a sacrifice—this thing will pass and he will be a one-term president and that’s ok—they’ll just get Hillary in 2012. Poor 0-he doesn’t know he’s being used!

Fox News just had a report that people in the age group of 20 and 30 year olds will pay FOUR TIMES the insurance rates that they’re now paying, while Seniors will see their premiums CUT IN HALF through 0bamacare.

Wait till they discover that (under Obamacare) their premiusm are going up between 2-3X to pay for senior care. The change they can believe in is gonna hit them square in the wallet.

Exactly what I was going to say. You voted for him, now go buy your freaking insurance like your leader says or go to jail.

Also heard something like once you hit your 70's mammograms are rated as a "C" grade from the death panels. I think Marsha Blackburn was talking about this. So mammograms for seniors over 70 (or maybe it was 75) won't be covered by insurance any more.

I suppose the commies have to balance the fact that seniors vote and will vote against them with the fact that there'll be a lot less of them to worry about once medicine is taken over.

Well you see it's all about votes now isn't it. The young folks need to pay 4 times as much as us old geezers cuz they will be given the most care while us geezers will be told to lay down and die. WELL NOT THIS GEEZER!! I'LL FIGHT OBAMAS DEATHCARE WITH EVERY FIBER OF MY BODY!!

I think she said “I” category for women older than 74, “inconclusive evidence, “ meaning, I suppose they can refuse to pay for them.

Yes! Younger generation turning against Obama? Finally?

Truly, pigs up, up, UP in the air, looping de loop, gliding, soaring! While Beelzebub plays ice hockey on the frozen tar pits of hell.

Anything can happen now.

That's it. Thanks. I think the "C" rating went to 40-50 years old.

Word must be begining to leak out that this IS NOT free and premiums for their age group will virtually triple what they are now for Obamacare?

This is a survey done in a few states which ran ads created by the League of American Voters against obamacare. Looks like they may have been quite affective. You can see the ad and donate for it to expand its market reach here:

You are one of a small minority - that I can tell - but even so I'll apologize to you and the small company you keep.

If this goes through we will all pay the fine or go to jail... unless and until we change the government.

As you should, not all of us in the younger generation (of which I am one, and so are many of my peers/friends) conservatives or libertarians..! Do not discount us, however do not count politics to save you either, my friend, as we are not to worship this (I preach to myself as well), men’s souls is what God is after, and that may be why we are being judged with “Obama”, turn to God with a pure heart, and maybe God will spare the nation!~! I hope to stop bad policy like Obamacare along the way too..(And would fight and die for the older generations’ right to live, and not have their medicine rationed in a ‘euthanasia’ like way..!).
