Pity the Young

By Katrina Trinko

In fact, for young adults — the majority of whom voted for Obama and supported Obamacare — the implementation of Obamacare could result in health-insurance premiums’ rising significantly. Young, single adults who make about $25,000 a year or more will face premium hikes of 42 percent in the individual market, according to an analysis conducted by consulting firm Oliver Wyman and published in the American Academy of Actuaries’ Contingencies. That’s some reward for their loyal advocacy for Obama and his health-care policy. Single thirtysomethings who are ineligible for exchange subsidies will be affected as well, with their premiums likely to increase by 31 percent.

Most who voted for Mr. Obama, including the young, were impervious to facts. I wonder if these new realities will make a dent in their seemingly invincible ignorance. Well, at least they’ll get what they voted for.
