    Premiums for young healthy people will jump in 45 states under Obamacare

    Young people in 45 states will see their health insurance premiums increase under Obamacare because the law relies on the money they pay into the system to offset the cost of caring for older enrollees, according to a new study.


    Virginia leads the pack, as individuals aged 27 and under will see their health insurance premiums jump by 252.5 percent -- $416.55 --


    Virginians under the age of 50 will see their premiums jump by an even greater percentage, rising from $228 to $991.03.

    That's why there is that exemption to allow kids to stay on their parents' insurance until they are 26. Without that Obama's base would rebel at the cost to them. He gambled and won that his base was so selfish that if their costs are pushed off on someone else they would be fine with it. 27 is the new age to become conservative.

    Insurance is a pool. If we are to allow old sick people coverage, then young healthy ones have to pay more. Is it fair? No. But, what in life is?

    Personally, I'd be self employed if not for the group healthcare. Over the past ten years or so, if I were to have covered myself and family, I'd have paid 5X as much, out of pocket, and have crappier coverage. Now, under the new scheme, I might be breaking even. Group covereages will weaken and cost more while rates for the 50-plus on individual plans may strengthen. This may open up an opportunity for me to go back into my own business.

    Heritage Foundation? Really?

    I'm tired of these stats. Here is the truth. Premiums are going to increase, first off because the Obama plans cover more than the high deductible plans most younger folk receive. Not a single one of these articles I have read actually compares comparable plans. They take the cheapest currently available high deductible plan and compare it to the Obama plan with higher coverage and argue that it is proof of massive premium increases. Comparing apples to oranges is dishonest at best, but most Americans have so little understanding of basic statistics they don't even see it.

    Yes, we're selfish because previous generations shipped all the jobs overseas, jacked up the price of education, and stagnated wages so that you need a master's degree in order to get a job that pays enough to make your rent. But while we're obtaining all of this education, taking on debt and having basically no money until we're almost 30, we should be paying for health insurance. Or we could just start flipping burgers when we'er 16 and then move on to the better jobs later. Oh wait, there aren't any, and there is no advancement anymore without higher education. Congratulations on creating this system for us. Now you have to live with it.

    Well I didn't create this system. I also didn't buy in to going to college on a student loan. I don't subscribe to the common perception that living in debt is normal. I don't have any credit cards, car payments, mortgage or student debt. In fact I don't pay interest to anybody. I started my own business and provide jobs for others, but I don't hire kids. They are largely irresponsible and have an inflated slf worth. In fact I have never hired anyone younger than I am. Not entirely on purpose, there have been a couple I thought were younger until we filled out the paperwork. Thing is today's youth got us in to our current mess because they fell for Obama's sales pitch. So the future you inherit is yours. Enjoy it, you've earned it by not considering the long term consequences.

    Artificially inflated wages and unions can be thanked for much of this, and in the free market jobs will go to places where it is more efficient.

    jacked up the price of education,
    Thank government...

    and stagnated wages
    Thank government for crippling business and making it an employers market. Their idiotic programs of forcing banks to loan money to people who couldn't pay it back was a shot of heroin. Felt good at first and all the Socialists patted themselves on the back, but when the junk ran out... the harsh realities set in.

    Fewer jobs means less competition, and well... ObamaKare and ObamaIdiocy has certainly hampered job creation. But hey... he's got more folks dependent on government... which is great for the Socialists and the parasites they try to breed.

    A misleading article, under PPACA people are required to have enough insurance to cover health issues. Prior to PPACA, people could buy catastrophic insurance to cover the event they are in a bad accident. They didn't cover health issues, these policies must offer a minimal amount of health insurance to cover sickness and therefore are more expensive than the previous policies.

    That is some truly hateful selfish intent right there. Blaming todays youth, many of whom were to young to actually vote at the time, for creating the problems of your generation is shocking. It might even be evil. This is like blaming a toddler for being abandoned and if it dies from exposure it's the child's fault.

    The youth didn't implement Medicare or Social Security, the two biggest pyramid schemes the world has known. The youth of today didn't create The Great Recession. The youth of today didn't create the job outsourcing bonanza the U.S. is facing. And the youth of today aren't the ones preventing tax cuts for bringing jobs back to America from being implemented.

    You are a truly evil individual if your beliefs are sincere.
