ObamaCare: Hit #6 Young People will bare the largest burden of healthcare reform

Remember the hoards of young people that voted overwhelmingly for Obama????

Yep- that support of Obama is going to cost them bigtime.

From today's Washington Post

A 2008 study by the Urban Institute found that more than 10 million young adults ages 19 to 26 lack health insurance coverage. For many of those people, health-care reform would offer the promise of relatively inexpensive individual policies, which do not exist in many states today.

The trade-off is that young people would no longer be permitted to bet on their good health: All the reform legislation before Congress would require individuals to buy at least minimal coverage.
