Skip to comments.Young and healthy needed to make Obamacare mandate work (MSM worried Obamacare will fail)

Lauren Zanardelli and Graham Foster are the kind of customers the government needs to make Obamacare work.
The chefs own and operate a bright orange hipster magnet called the Neue Southern Food Truck. The farm-to-table vehicle stands out in Greenville, South Carolina, even among the new gastropubs that dot the city's charming Main Street.
Today Zanardelli and Foster are zooming around their rented kitchen on the edge of town, preparing deep-fried Brussels sprouts, Ramen with seaweed and pumpkin sweet rolls. They won't have time after their 12-hour work day to explore the new health insurance marketplaces that opened this morning, but they look forward to seeing what Obamacare can offer them.
And that's good news for health care insurance companies. Young and fit people like Zanardelli, 31, and Foster, 28, have to buy into the system to support the law's mandate that all people must have health insurance next year.
Under Obamacare, companies can no longer deny policies to people with pre-existing conditions, and some 48 million Americans are uninsured, according to the latest U.S. Census Bureau figures.

If it’s tat great, Obama doesn’t need the mandate. If the carrot works, you don’t need the stick. So he ought to risk it and delay the mandate. Except then he wouldn’t get the sadistic rush of forcing people to do things against their best interests.
It's the young and healthy MONEY that is needed. (It cracks me up when Democrat "mainstream" newsroom headline writers manage to leave that important word out.) When the rats concocted their Mengelecare scheme, it was all about confiscating money from young, healthy, working families by mandating they buy something they don't need.
SOMEBODY has to pay for all the Democrat moochers and AIDS-infected faggots.
Obamacare is TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION.
Obamacare has nothing to do with care, health or medical treatment.
Obamacare has everything to do with a mandatory insurance that everyone must buy at the point of the Federal gun.
Obamacare Medical Insurance premiums are under the control of the IRS.
These insurance premiums can be raised every year by the IRS with no involvement by Congress.
Thus, all the present and future Democrat rulers have to do is tell the IRS how much taxpayer dollars need to be forcefully extracted from the taxpayers, and the IRS will extract the money for them.
Hence, Obamacare Insurance is taxation without representation that Traitor John Roberts of THE NINE SUPREMES has ruled it to be above the control of the US Congress, and it will stay until Obamacare is ABOLISHED!
Uh oh, and another problem for Obamacare just came out tonight - turns out all those subsidies people have been counting on to reduce their costs don’t go directly to them, but instead to their insurance companies to be applied against their premiums - there will be no big flood of government checks into the eager hands of the public, to be spent as extra cash on their latest whim - no immediate tangible reinforcement to keep the rubes interested in the program and grateful for ‘rat government largesse - a PR loser for sure......
The underground economy will blossom like never before.
I am wodering where all these young and healthy are going to be living when mom and dad lose the house trying to keep up with the Obamacare fines and costs.

Do not forget to keep trying and trying to get on the Obummercare website and keep trying and trying those busy phone lines......
Do what you can to help the goofer!
Well, they are telling all the secrets now, eh?
But wait, there is more! FTA:
..... What insurance companies will save on medical costs for the healthier population will help pay for the older, sicker people who are entering into the insurance market for the first time. ..... < snip >
From New health insurance exchanges want young, healthy people - LAT, by Chad Terhune, 2013 October 01
The math of President Obama's Affordable Care Act works only if millions of healthy consumers start paying into the system to offset the bills racked up by sicker people who can't be turned away.
Persuading twentysomethings won't be easy. Max Halpern, a 25-year-old San Diego law student, is healthy and doesn't spend much time worrying about his next doctor's appointment. ..... < snip >
..... The stakes are high. Nationwide, the Obama administration estimates it needs about 40% of the 7 million people expected to enroll the first year to be young and healthy to help mitigate the costs of the chronically ill. ..... < snip >
..... "If healthy people don't enroll, insurers will start to increase premiums," said Christine Eibner, a healthcare economist at Rand Corp., a Santa Monica think tank. "It could create a death spiral where only sick people want to sign up." ..... < snip >
And there you have it. Media can no longer keep the "secret sauce" of Obamacare financing calculations.
The mask is off, and what do we see as the real face of Obamacare? Why, it's the good old pyramid / Ponzi scheme. It needs more and more young and healthy to pay for the increasing number of older population (the other end of the scheme would have to be increased rationing of medical care and lower capitation).
The wizard behind ObamaCare turns out to be none other than ObaMadoff!
Good luck Lobama. My kid is now covered until he’s 26.
When these people sign up and later find themselves in a real health crisis (other than free birth control pills), we’ll see if obamacare covers cancer treatment and major life threatening surgeries.
Pretty much - take, by force, from those who don’t need the product to support those who want the product.
That’s why the IRS is enforcing obamacare.
From each according to his ability, to each according to his need.
KarlMarxCare is here.
I also like the name Mengelecare.
Not just the young. I know a guy in his late 50s who is going to opt out and pay the fine since the pre-existing-condition incentive will allow him to enroll if and when he does get a major illness.
“Do what you can to help the goofer!”
Yes, but keep in mind you’re going to hear spin in their favor.
I heard a dim last night say the fact that so many tried to get on, but couldn’t, is overwhelming proof of zerocare’s success.
Rome fell because it was better to go with the barbarian you did not know than the tax man you did know.
- I also heard the moron-in-cheese say anyone could sign up for Obamacare as quickly as buying an item on Amazon.
- As an Amazon PRIME (1-Click) I challenge the moron-in-cheese to an internet duel - I will start with a less than one second purchase.
My package(s) will be delivered to me before he even gets up in the morning and pretends to be actually doing something that will benefit himself before he goes on an alleged “golf date” with Tiger “maybe a little blow” Woods.
