    Careful liberal students, before you go celebrate your so-called victory you should know exactly what it entails.

    With the Supreme Court ruling to uphold ObamaCare by extending the power of the United States Congress to tax Americans' behavior, we have lost yet another freedom to the Obama Administration.

    Here's how Obamacare will affect students like you:

    Rachel Jankowski, University of Michigan:


    As the daughter of a surgeon, I have heard for the past few years that the future of medicine looks bleak at best. According to a February poll, 60% of doctors say health care reform will negatively affect patient care, with only 22% of doctors believing it will have a positive impact. Perhaps one of the biggest problems is more patients will be put on Medicaid, a broken governmental health insurance program that pays only 56% of what private insurance pays.

    For my family, it is not just about the cost of healthcare insurance going up; it is also about the loss of income coming in. A person who goes to medical school immediately after graduation will not be practicing medicine until close to age 30. At this point, he will have racked up hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt, and for what? To receive a dismal salary after working 80-100 hours a week? A recent poll says 78% of doctors believe their earnings will be affected negatively by healthcare reform. When physicians under the age of 40 are asked, an astonishing 84% believe Obamacare will hurt them.

    In fact, nine out of ten doctors do not recommend medicine as a profession. It is no wonder more and more students have decided not to enter the medical profession. Talented individuals choose not to become physicians because the incentives are just not there.

    With this gloomy outlook, is this really what's best for the American people, especially my generation?

    Jolie Stuart-Davis, University of Central Washington:

    As a young student, I've been in good health for most of my life, but I do occasionally have an accident or two playing sports. Thankfully, I have great health insurance for a reasonable rate… Well, I did. With Obamacare, I will be forced to subsidize the sick and elderly more so than I am now. With Obamacare being upheld, my premiums will go through the roof.

    This is unacceptable. The cost for health insurance when you are young and healthy should be low, if you choose to get it. Now, with Obamacare, costs for young people like me will double.

    If I can find a job when I graduate, I doubt my employer will cover my health insurance because of the high costs. Wouldn't they rather pay the cheaper "tax"?

    Hillary Cherry, Purdue University:

    As the President (then senator) told us in 2008, mandating everyone to buy a house will not solve homelessness. Yet, the Obama administration thinks that by mandating citizens to purchase health care and penalizing those that do not obey will solve the health care crisis.

    Next May, I will be graduating from Purdue University. Growing up, I pictured my graduation as a celebratory milestone in my life. Over the past four years, I have realized this is no longer the case.

    Obamacare is now the biggest tax in U.S. history, and it is targeting young people. In our already failing job market we can expect that even more jobs will be lost as businesses try to avoid the penalties and costs created by Obamacare.

    Insurance for people 30 and under will go up by 35 to 45 percent. Colleges will no longer be able to offer affordable insurance to students. Businesses (if they keep their insurance benefits) will not hire as many young people because they will cost too much to insure. Families on budgets will not be able to afford the cost of college and insurance.

    By implementing Obamacare, unemployment is starting to look like a much better option than finding work. It's a sad day for young Americans.

    As the Obama administration continues to dismantle our generation students should brace themselves for what's ahead.
