Low prices seen luring young adults to Obamacare: study

Aug 21, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Reuters

If uninsured young Americans shun the new health plans offered under President Barack Obama's healthcare reform law, it will be because the insurance costs too much and not because they don't expect to need much medical care, according to a study released on Wednesday.

Democrats need to sweeten the pot a little if they want young people to join obamacare. May if they would pay off all their college loans if they signed up. That would be nice.

More propaganda from the Marxist left. Obamacare is a disaster for all America, including the starry-eyed Obama worshipping young.

Because we have accepted today the existence in perpetuity of an underclass of scores of millions who cannot cope and must be carried by society. Fed, clothed, housed, tutored, and medicated at taxpayers expense their entire lives. We now have a dependent nation the size of Spain in our independent America. We have a new and growing division in our country, those who pay double or triple fare, and those who ride forever free.

This is why the crazy republiCANTS only focus on repealing this - and not a damn thing else!

14 states have already shown a minimum of 20% decrease in current premiums - New York has shown a 53% decrease alone! So of course they'll do anything to stop it - just like in the early 60's, when Reagan did a whole skit for the republicans against Medicare - see how well that worked?

Republicans will NEVER hold the White House once this is implemented - and they know it.

More and more Democrats are seeing Obamacare as the disaster it is. Republicans knew from the start it was bad- they investgate, but Dems. just take Obama's word as truth.

Well duh...

There are people that take chances including not carrying health INSURANCE. But most know they might need medical services one day. Cost will be a factor because COST is THE problem.

The recent study that shows welfare benefits exceeding entry level/minimum wage jobs is a indication that MANY will not be able to carry the burden of health insurance premiums. The economy is NOT capable of a lot of things right now and a lower cost of living is one of them.

Funny how the mention cost in this study yet the ACA aka Obama Care failed to properly address the high outrageous costS which are THE problem when it comes to affordable health care.

Who is your current health care provider?

Private insurers always shop for the best prices - so this nonsense of your deductible suddenly increasing by over 150%, to $2500.00, is not believable.

Aside from your scare tactics, health care insurance under the ACA is already projected to decline by over 20% in 14 states - with my state seeing a 53% drop in current premiums.

Now, back to you supposed issue - since the ACA has not been implemented yet, how is this supposedly impacting you already?

Come back from Fantasy Island with more of your unsubstantiated dribble soon!!!!

These young people who probably have educations (as compared
your average tea-party Republican moron) can see through all
the distortions and lies being spread by conservative
propaganda outlets about the Affordable Health Care Act.

Good for them!

She got the house, the car, the kids, your (ex)dog & most of your paycheck.
While you get to post snarky comments from the local Starbucks using whatever's left over from the palimony payments to drown your sorrows in yet another venti 1/2 caf caramel mocha-chino.
I kid, Inbred. For all the Frightwing nut-jobs that post here, you actually have a sense of humor.
