Feb. 15 is “National Youth Enrollment Day,” a nationwide series of concerts, rallies and online campaigns aimed at convincing more "young and healthy" people to sign up for insurance under the Affordable Care Act. Will it work?

It will work at spending a lot of money for no significant results. Idiots will yammer about it, morons will tout it, and the country will be poorer as a result.

It will utterly fail the nation, thereby serving Obama & the Left by weakening us.

Coming from a "youth", national youth enrollment day sounds awfully Third Reich-ish

We're already forced to do it or pay penalties to the federal government. Having an idiotically-named day isn't going to do anything.

This sounds familiar to something from the late 1930s/early 1940s... What was it again...? Oh yeah, Hitler youth. Get them to depend on us early and they'll stay true to the cause.

Rosebud ... have you checked the unemployment of young blacks since the rudderless one took power?

MrO must really "care" about young blacks as we can see that he sure doesn't want them to work.

Just so you know both sides of the issue, there are people who have cancer who cannot get the doctor they need, and they could not keep the insurance they like. So before you start talking about how wonderful the Unaffordable Healthcare Act is, you

Today's youth (in general)
1. Pays little attention to mainstream media
2. Doesn't trust anything (especially the government)
3. would rather spend their money on cars, phones, & entertainment than health insurance.

I commend Governors such as Nathan Deal for refusing to expand their Medicaid programs. The federal government is completely overstepping their bounds.

The fact is boundries were set upon the federal goverenment during the foundation of our country... and now it seems as though the federal goverenment treats those boundries as if they were just suggestions..

No, because the smart ones already know that it's a bad deal, and the rest will figure it out once they take a look at the costs.

There's a cream for that "massive liberal" thing you've got, but it's only covered by O'care after you satisfy the $10,000 annual deductible. Sorry, gone are the days of affordable in any relation to health care, MrO and his minions have made sure!
