Wonder what you would find if you frisked President Obama’s socialized health-care reform bill… for the 1,000,001th time?
Answer: Young adults will see a 17 percent increase in their premiums under Obama-Care.
Congratulations college students and young adults! Give yourself a big ol’ pat on the back, because you just screwed yourselves…
The Associated Press (of all media outlets – again) reports:
Under the health care overhaul, young adults who buy their own insurance will carry a heavier burden of the medical costs of older Americans — a shift expected to raise insurance premiums for young people when the plan takes full effect.
Beginning in 2014, most Americans will be required to buy insurance or pay a tax penalty. That’s when premiums for young adults seeking coverage on the individual market would likely climb by 17 percent on average, or roughly $42 a month, according to an analysis of the plan conducted for The Associated Press. The analysis did not factor in tax credits to help offset the increase.
The higher costs will pinch many people in their 20s and early 30s who are struggling to start or advance their careers with the highest unemployment rate in 26 years.
Question for those college kids who got swept up in Obama-Mania and decided to vote for him in the 2008 election: This is one hell of a way to repay you for all your support, huh?
I’ll just let the information above soak in while your subconscious calls you an idiot…
