From all current available information, it appears the roll out of the Affordable Care Act is having many problems in securing the necessary numbers to make it a viable program. One factor that is extremely important to make the system work is to convince young people to make a commitment to join. Many reasons, such as personal information security, high cost, increased deductible and the seller’s proven lack of credibility, have obviously weighed in on their decision to not enter the program.
Their early payment into the ACA, as many have pointed out, not only would cost them today but in their later years, too. They would owe on a grossly inflated national debt brought in part by a misconceived political power grab, and not one benefiting the average citizen.
It appears more and more like a method by the administration to control almost 20 percent of our finances by squeezing out those in the health care market, and dictating care levels and costs from Washington. This would also influence subsequent voter patterns. All things “political.”
If they pull this rabbit out of the hat, rest assured the oil industry is not far behind. Have a problem? Not to worry. Work it out with your friendly bureaucrat.
