ABC News: New fears Obamacare premiums TO RISE because young people aren’t signing up



As if premiums aren’t high enough already for millions of Americans. To think they would go up because enough young people aren’t signing up is devastating:

No it is way, way lower and I am willing to bet you this this was a known factor and part of the plan from the beginning. What has obama done, since in office, that has been positive for this U.S. of A. ? NOTHING !

A pyramid scheme needs more suckers at the bottom than scammers at the top. The suckers aren’t rising to the bait as expected. That’s going to leave a lot of scammers unsupported. This should get interesting.

Keep in mind that the America Left NEEDS the US health care system to be reduced to a smoldering wreckage so that they can then blame the private sector and hector us into going for Single Payer(TM).

Imagine that….young, healthy folks aren’t interested in obamacare. Who’d thought that was going to happen? EVERYONE, except the feeble idiots in the present administration.

The fundamental flaw of nationalized health care aside, and speaking strictly to the topic at hand….I believe that in the administration’s infinite wisdom, expecting “those under 35” to substantially fund the ACA, they forgot that most people under the age of 26 (or 27?) depend on their parent’s policies. I guess the parents are paying in on behalf of them, which causes the actuarial data to be misleading.

nstead of being Obamascare cheerleaders the MSM should investigate the real purpose of Obamascare.

Obamascare is certainly NOT affordable to those who weren’t and still aren’t insured. All it seems that Obamacare has done is make insurance more expensive.

IS Obamascare a plan of good intentions that was/is managed wrong? Was/is Obamascare a collusion between insurers and the Government to increase fees to the insurer ( and if so why, what does the government gain)? Or is this just a step to get to single payer and the insurance companies would get thrown under the Obamabus eventually?

It makes no sense to continue Obamascare. It is just going to get worse and could damage or destroy our healthcare and our insurers. Ponzi schemes always fail.

ObumaNOcare is for one purpose and one purpose only–to destroy the Middle Class by raising their cost to pay for their very lives, the Elites’ exemptions, and the poor’s subsidies. The EPA destroying energy is another scheme to destroy the Middle Class. Wake up people! They, the DemoncRats and their sycophant RINOs are creating a feudal class system where the super rich/well connected rule over the reduced Middle Class to sharecroppers and poor.

It’s the rhetoric that started this…When you tell a bunch of kids they have to pay the elder and sickly folks way they tend to look at that week end party and having health care and suddenly you get “Let them care for themselves” I’m not paying anyone’s way” Personally I think it was a bad way to put it…I am 55 yrs old, I have worked and paid for healthcare for decades. longer than any college person has lived. I am a fairly healthy person and never used my health insurance and seldom do now…So where has my money been going? was it an investment in my future ability to have coverage or was it to pay the way of those that are sickly or poor no matter what age they were or are..???? I don’t want some school age person ever thinking they are paying my way..as a… Read more »

NO Bailouts for the insurers!!!!!!!!!!!

Howdy, Mom. I work for an insurance company and can tell you that no insurers are truly fleecing anyone. The feds REQUIRE us to keep a certain amount of liquid capital to cover catastrophes. However, I do agree that we should NEVER bail anyone out. When any business fails another will grow in its place.
Love you

There is a provision hidden in the law the govt will bailout insurers if they go into a death spiral.

All we, as consumers have to do, is refuse to purchase those companies products. I needed a car after Maobama bailed out the auto industry and have never been a Ford man, even though they took no money so I bought a 13 year old Jaguar for $7500. THAT’S how we make sure it stops. The consumer always get’s last say. I still drive that Jag and have put a little money into it. I, now, will never drive anything BUT a Jaguar again. It is the best car I’ve ever owned, however, I DO have the know how to do most of the maintanance on it myself.

After the past 3 months, they are just waking up to the problems with young people? Many younger Americans still live with their parents because they can’t make it on their own and they’re surprised that these healthy people can’t afford Obamacare? – give me a break.

BTW, I hope the whole story covered more than the 25 second video.

How can they shocked? The first of the law to be implemented was allowing grown children to stay on their parents insurance until they are 26 years OLD!

Hi!

No it’s not you but me. I have totally slacked trying to get a remodel and work done. Have let RS down with contributing, plus was in New Orleans for a week for a much needed vacation.

Speaking of contributing…have you read Kbob’s blog thread? I like to read his stuff and just kind of soak it up. It’s excellent.

the lefts (including most of the media) biggest fear is coming true, the worthlessness and complete incompetence of their personal jesus, community organizer, member of the “choom” gang, collectivist tyrant, wannabe dicktater and nothing else, is being exposed, as is the entire democrat agenda. barak Hussein oblamer and the entire prog/lib democrat agenda is a complete and total failure destroying the country. it cannot work, the agenda is societal cannibalism. just look to places like Detroit, that is their agenda and demonstrates the results of democrat rule. everything is worse now than it was when he took office, other than the phony stock market and its only where it is because the fed pumps 85 BILLION a month of phony money into it,enriching the 1%,the very people oblamer demonizes in public but bootlicks and takes bribes from in private. that fed pumping has also dangerously lowered the value of those… Read more »

its bad, I first started voting at 18. my first election I was able to vote for Reagan and have voted republican every since (well not McCain. I stopped voting for him after the keating five). but I must say, if republicans force amnesty upon us, destroying the middle class and creating a permanent democrat majority, for nothing more than chamber of commerce bribes im done with them.

and if it is not repatriation, it IS amnesty, no matter how the politicians say otherwise.

I am with you. This is just the latest in a series of tangential issues that gobble up all the air time.

What person can claim both: 1) to have an IQ higher than a doorknob, and 2) to be surprised that Obamacare go into big-time defecit, just like every other government program (Ponzi).

Whether it is Obamacare, Social Security, etc., perpetual motions machines cannot possibly work. And we have the vaunted mainstream media wondering if it should have been painted a different color.

The level of stump stupid these progressives have hit is amazing in it’s scope!
Their stupidity was once quelled by the common sense voter, now we have a tyrant in the WH who has a “PEN AND PHONE” and apparently is not afraid to use them.
He should fear what a congress willing to do their duty could land him in: a boat load a crap while sporting the latest orange jump suit.
But, we have a congress consisting of idiots, except Ted Cruz and a few others.
