'Young Invincibles' May Suffer Most from Obamacare

Ad Feedback

They've been dubbed the "Young Invincibles." They are the seemingly healthy 18- to 34-year-olds who oftentimes aren't insured, and they're a major focus of the administration's Obamacare push.

But they could be the ones hurt most by the president's health care plan.

According to a study by the Manhattan Institute , Obamacare will increase insurance rates for young men by an average of 97 to 99 percent. Young women could see an increase of 55 to 62 percent.

Yet "the Obama Administration is adding $684 million annually to the debt by launching a celebrity-ridden advertisement campaign to encourage young Americans to participate and buy into ObamaCare," Penny Nance, president and CEO of Concerned Women for America, said, citing the Associated Press

"It's not because this administration cares about uninsured youth," Nance made the remarks in an op-ed in the Christian Post on how Obamacare will affect young people.

"It's because they desperately need to convince 2.7 million young healthy people to pay three times the cost of health care in order to offset the cost of 25 million new high-risk individuals," she said.

"The bottom line is that ObamaCare is going to cost. Not at some indefinite date either. It's going to cost every young person thousands of dollars, job security, free market enterprise, privacy, and moral conscience rights, starting now and cumulating on January, 1, 2014," she said.

Will Obamacare really cost young people more? Penny Nance talks about this and more on CBN Newswatch, Sept. 26.
