Young adults may have been swayed by the "coolness" of Obama, but as predicted, when it comes to playing his game of wealth redistribution, without them being the beneficiaries, they're giving Obama and his expensive humptycare law a big fat predictable middle finger:

[Overall, the Federal government reports that 32% of on-exchange enrollees as of March 1st are under the age of 34. And many of these are teenagers who are part of family policies, not the young yuppies that Obamacare is fervently targeting. Earlier estimates showed only 20% of enrollees were between the ages 18 and 34.

The final number of young enrollees is well below the required cohort. Premiums will rise next year as a result of the adverse selection of older, and probably less healthy consumers. Why are young adults staying away? In one word, economics.

Obamacare is asking young adults to effectively subsidize the healthcare costs of older Americans. So far, Millennials are resisting this age-based transfer of wealth. Many are clearly opting instead to remain uninsured, or else they are buying cheaper health plans that donít conform to Obamacareís regulatory dictates...]

The communists that passed the ACA knew the engine of the law would fail. It was designed that way on purpose. Those traitors want socialized medicine, they always have and now have in place a Trojan Horse method of attaining it. My thought is is that once people start dying because of this law, some Americans will be issuing bounties on the people responsible. That will be a great day indeed.

There's a popular and growing belief that Single Payer is the ultimate goal of the progressive's Obamacare experiment. Some believe as you do that Obamacare was never really intended to work, but to simply knock the old health care plan out in order to create a pathway to Single Payer. It's something the left seems afraid to just admit (likely because it's been rejected every time it's mentioned), although Harry Reid has eluded to it.

I'm not sure about the "bounties" comment, but the trojan horse theory has backing. I ask those who deny this theory, if the progressives were trying to set up a failing system what would they be doing differently?

Obviously, the left runs in fear from Obamacare threads. Much more fun to get their fluff up on the gay bandwagon. LOL

The lefties on these threads are on that bandwagon because that is what they are. They just have not made it out of the closet yet.

What a disaster this thing is. This is one of Obama's great disasters and lies that he will be known through out history for. What a failure of a presidency.

And most of them aren't paying for Obamacare's 2 Billion dollar malfunctioning website anyway, the jobless slackasses!
