AP does the math on increases to the kids' insurance premiums under ObamaCare:
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.
Cap'n Ed Morrissey of HotAir spells out the irony:
During the entire ObamaCare debate, young voters consistently provided the most support for the government overhaul of the health-care system. Groups that encourage the youth vote campaigned in support of it, including the "F*** the Vote" campaign by Rock the Vote that had supporters pledging to only have sex with other Obama acolytes….
To put it in simpler terms, [younger voters] getting f***ed by the same people who pushed the "F*** the Vote" campaign and the Democrats. Had the younger voters taken the time to learn something about risk pools, insurance, and the experience of Massachusetts and Maine using the same kind of mandates, they'd have told Rock the Vote to f*** off. They still have the opportunity to deliver that message to Democrats in November.
All asterisks in original! It's a small price to pay for civilization, ain't it, young voters? Especially when insurance is not particularly linked to health outcomes?
