In 2009 when I took my 7-yr old to townhall meetings to protest nationalizing healthcare, my son could have told you that Obamacare wouldn’t work. He’s now 11 and his most recent essay titled, “I have a Dream” began thus; “I have a dream that one day everyone will be free from an oppressive government.” I was a little concerned that he’d have such a pessimistic view of government until I read this article that says that Obamacare is so unpopular with younger Americans that 47 percent say they support recalling the president.
Virginia Rep. Jim Moran (D-VA) appeared on a local radio station on Friday to discuss ObamaCare, and let this slip out:
“I’m afraid that the millennials, if you will, are less likely to sign up. I think they feel more independent, I think they feel a little more invulnerable than prior generations,” Moran says. “But I don’t think we’re going to get enough young people signing up to make this bill work as it was intended to financially.”
There you go. Even Democrats are starting to realize that the ObamaCare death spiral is not just an inconvenient talking point among Republicans, but a serious ObamaCare crisis that has to be addressed. Don’t count on the Democrats to address it, either.
“I just don’t know how we’re going to do it frankly,” he says. “If we had a solution I’d be telling the president right now.”
Obamacare is so unpopular with younger Americans that 47 percent say they support recalling the president.
When young Americans say they do not trust their own government and younger millenials are trending less democratic than ever before; shouldn’t the powers that be take a step back and analyze what the repercussions might be? There is nothing extreme about freedom and the constitution, but not abiding by its’ precepts causes extremism.
