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?

I'm a massive lib who agrees with the dems the majority kf he time, my question for them is: what indication do you have that it will? A few will sign up but i doubt it will get much attention

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!

Hohoho thats kinda funny, but no seriously everyone knows obamacare is garbage leislation and no liberal thought of it as a fix to our system. I think if healthcare didnt involve proppig up an entire insurance industry itd bw ACTUALLY cheaper...

But paying for healthcare ONCE doesnt make any sense. We should pay a good but in taxes, a lot in insurance wheather we need it ir not(already double paying) then again for what insurance is too cheap to cover is CLEARLY the best system

If only "everyone" admitted O'care won't work, we'd be able to start over. Unfortunately to many low info voters prompted up the Manchurian Candidate for a second round.

Let's hope the low info voters can at least calculate the cost of THEIR mess!

Armadillo ... you're suggesting that "luke warm" is the answer to standing for right vs wrong. It sounds like you're trying to excuse the extremist MrO.

If one foaming at the mouth liberal signs up it'll be "deemed" a success.

You don't have to pay to vote. Completely different principle at play here. Young adults don't care about health insurance, I didn't at that age.

Probably not. There is no reason to leave their parents plan until they are practically middle-aged, and no reason to sign up at all until they're sick. On the other hand, they do often like crowds and causes and doing whatever the crowd is doing.

In other words, young people are lemmings, and MrO is hoping that he can steer them off the cliff of Mount O'care with group think and his personal cool.

I think Zod has a good point, people will show up, but they won't sign up.

Young people? I thought they were still on mommy and daddy's insurance until they are 26? What gives?

I hope they are using Richard Simmons, like California spent 1.37 million on. Never have I seen an Administration propagandize, oh wait, history shows it has. How dumb, youth can stay on parents insurance until 26, now really who is signing up?

Maybe in your state they will hand out free joints. Once the kids are high they will hand out pens.

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.

It's obvious to the young people Obamacare is a bad deal for them unless they need truckloads of birth control.

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.

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.

What does race have to do with anything? Young people ( millenials) of both races are having a hard tome finding employment in this economy.

Well black people are required to have it too... there's no clause that says a certain skin tone or employment status that exempts you from O care as far as I know. So I'm not sure what the point of your comment could possibly be.

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.
