Today, Young America's Foundation Spokesman Ron
Meyer will appear on the Sean Hannity Radio
Show at 4:00 p.m. ET to debate Think Progress' Scott
Keyes about the impact on ObamaCare on Young
LISTEN LIVE: *Sean Hannity Show*
As the Supreme Court ruling approaches, few in
Washington realize that young people have the most at
stake. If ObamaCare is upheld, the cost of our
healthcare will rise 35 to 45 percent due to
mandatory price controls, and we will no longer be able to buy
catastrophic plans which fit our individual needs. Those trying to
employ young people will face these additional costs-making
younger labor much less appealing.
Students have already begun to be hit with these policies.
Numerous colleges have dropped their student
plans due to high costs, and those colleges that keep
their plans are being forced to raise their rates upwards
of 1,000% (NOT A TYPO).
Even if the mandate is severed and overturned, young people will
still be worse off. Insurance plans for younger people will sky
rocket, and since no one is forced to buy them, nobody
will. Very few young people, parents, or employers will
voluntarily pay these new government-regulated prices.
If ObamaCare is overturned, young Americans will have a freer
future with more employment opportunities, cheaper tuition, and
better health choices.
