    Health premiums could rise 17 pct for young adults

    Could it be anymore backwards folks?

    Does anything the left do, add up to what they say it does?

    The Associated Press: Health premiums could rise 17 pct for young adults

    Health premiums could rise 17 pct for young adults

    CHICAGO Under the health care overhaul, young adults who buy their own insurance will carry a heavier burden of the medical costs of older Americans a shift expected to raise insurance premiums for young people when the plan takes full effect.

    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.

    This wouldn't have happened if we had had one of the most ingenious systems of price control out there, the public option.

    But no, you guys were all afraid that we were going to kill your grandparents and unborn children while forcing you to go to labor camps.

    Old people don't work anymore. The young do.

    Also I must say, this isn't really that big of news, Health Premiums are always rising by a ridiculous amount, I wouldn't be suprised if this was actually good news.

    Either you will pay higher premiums OR if you're a student and on your parents plan (like me) you will pay higher interest for more restrictive loans I honestly don't see why so many people my age like Obama

    Re: Health premiums could rise 17 pct for young adults

    Looked it up, a 17% increase over 4 years will be an IMPROVEMENT over the double digit increases we have seen EACH YEAR over the last decade.

    So all in all, this is GOOD NEWS.

    Carry on.

    But I thought Obama promised premiums wouldn't rise at all and that the cost of healthcare would go down?

    I'm thinking that since so many young people think this is a great idea, they should consider it a priviledge to pay more for it. In fact, they should be elated.
