10 Reasons Why Obamacare Stinks For Young People

There’s nothing affordable about the “Affordable” Care Act.

By: Julie Borowski (@JulieBorowski)

1. Obamacare makes health insurance more expensive.

Obamacare will increase health insurance premiums by 41 percent, on average. So much for the “affordable” care act.

2. Many people are losing their health insurance.

An estimated 7 MILLION people will lose their job based health insurance because of Obamacare. The law encourages employers to stop offering health insurance. Oops.

3. Obamacare Has 18 New Taxes!

Ron Swanson is not pleased.

4. Many people are getting their work hours cut.

Obamacare’s employer mandate punishes businesses with over 50 “full time” employees. Full time is 30 or more hours a week. Hmm, it’s no coincidence that over 360 businesses have already slashed workers’ hours to 29 hours a week. So, you may have to get two jobs to pay the rent.

5. Obamacare is super complicated.

No one can figure out how exactly it will affect them.

6. Many young people can’t get a job.

Because Obamacare is a complete mess, many employers are getting rid of entry level positions and avoiding new hires because they have no idea how this thing will be enforced.

7. The young and healthy will take the hardest hit.

The young and relatively healthy people will pay for the health care of old and unhealthy people in the Obamacare exchanges. If you’re a single adult with no kids, you’ll save at least $500 by not opting into the exchange and paying the government fine instead.

8. Good luck trying to sign up for Obamacare?

The website has been a disaster. Only 6 people were able to sign up on the first day of the “big” Obamacare roll out.

9. Obamacare will increase the national debt.

Obamacare will cost about $2.4 trillion in the first decade. It will increase the long term federal deficit by $6.2 trillion! And yup, young people are going to be stuck with the bill.

10. Everyone is going to be forced to buy health insurance.

Whether they like it or not. Too bad if you can’t afford it. Starting next year, buy a private product or pay a government fine.

…That ain’t right.
