Wasted on the young

Barack Obama's B/S on his health insurance scheme, that's what, says the Mighty (Melissa) Quinn;
A monetary penalty is not going to be enough to persuade young people to register for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act, as a new study from the American Forum found that 86 percent of young-adult households would benefit financially from opting out of Obamacare.
After examining the potential for subsidies and cost-sharing, the American Action Forum found that 6 out of 7 young-adult households would be better off foregoing health insurance coverage, opting instead of pay the fee associated with not having health insurance. Additionally, the organization learned that it is most financially advantageous for Millennials to pay for their health care costs out of pocket.
“…but the overall finding is constant; the majority of uninsured young adults will benefit financially from opting out of coverage in 2014,” the study states.
Hmmm...aren't these the same people who voted for Obama?
