Everyone knows by now that in order for Obamacare to function, even just a little bit, the program needs young and healthy people buying expensive healthcare. The Obama administration is so desperate to get young people signed up, they’ve enlisted the help of major Hollywood celebrities and are planning to advertise for Obamacare coverage inside porta-potties at concerts, on fly-over banners at the beach and on coffee cups.
But despite how many catchy slogans or fancy celebrities the administration employs to push the legislation, young people still aren’t feeling it. Not only do they say they can’t afford health insurance, they just aren’t making it a personal budget priority. With Obamacare specifically, they’d rather pay a penalty for lack of coverage than sign up for an expensive plan they don’t need.
