  • Young People Need Obamacare Because They are Knuckleheads

    Her very ignorant statement once again proves the principle of overreaching government involvement in citizens lives--the focal point of the Obama administration.
     
    The success of Obamacare is dependent upon the enrollment of the young and healthy between the ages of 18 and 34.  However, unpopularity of Obamacare among young people is growing no matter how many desperate attempts the White House makes to reach millennials.       
     
    The sad reality is that the Obama administration as well as the First Lady view young people as knuckleheads who don't know what's best for them.  Obamacare is not about empowering young people, its about controlling young people.  Conservatives have been the group championing young people--believing that they are fully capable of making their own decisions whereas liberals believe in nanny state governance.  
     
    Enrollment numbers only cement the fact that millennials do not want Obamacare. Only 27 percent of young people have actually enrolled since the opening of the exchange in October. YoungAmerica's Foundation's poll predicts even more dire results for thePresident, with just 18 percent of young adults saying they are"likely to enroll" in Obamacare compared to a whopping 46 percentwho are "not likely to enroll."
     
    Young people are not knuckleheads for not enrolling in Obamacare--a program full of skyrocketing premiums, high deductibles, and many other flaws.  Young people deserve better than Obamacare and they at least deserve a President who believes in their empowerment.  Reducing Obamacare's key demographic to "kunckleheads" was a terrible mistake as well as a glimpse into the dependent state that this administration seeks to create--where government knows best and its people don't.
