Not enough young people are signing on to the pyrami- er, ponz-, well, “redistributive, egalitarian, fun, go-lucky care-bear wonderland” that is the Affordable Care Act:
The new private health plans available under Obamacare drew in fewer young and healthy Americans than needed for the administration to make healthcare reform a market success in the first wave of enrollment, an official report showed on Monday….Younger enrollees tend to be healthy and are needed to help offset the cost of covering older, sicker consumers, because Obamacare prohibits insurers from charging sick people higher rates and limits the cost premium they can assign to older policyholders.
Wow. You mean only low-lifes and welfarians signed up for the socialist-style Obamacare? Utterly amazing. Even while ramping up the costs for insurance companies in an attempt to suck off buyers, they’re still having difficulty.
A federal mandate. That’s what it will take to keep these enemies-of-the-state from tanking an otherwise beautiful project.
