I am tired of paying for young TAKERS, I am a mid-thirties MAKER who has always had health insurance and I am tired of it. Time for them to pull up the bootstraps and take Personal Reponsibility for themselves... at 26 you are an adult, and will be treated as such.
I threw in the Rhetorcial Buzzwords, get it now?
See, here's the point you're missing. Young people aren't being asked to pay the honest actuarial cost of their care. They're being asked to pay far above what their own coverage would cost to make up for the slack of older, sicker people being allowed to pay less.
And regardless of how much intergenerational theft we think will finally break the camel's back, the reality of the situation is that they simply won't sign up for it. Things would have to get much more coercive for that to happen. And I don't think the powers that be have the political stomach for that.
