Critical thinkers from all political vantage points have long pointed out that ObamaCare is based on the assumption that young, “invincible” voters are essentially sheep whom can be counted on to do really foolish things.
Like paying outrageous amounts for Obamacare health care coverage in order to subsidize older, less healthy Americans.
It’s wealth redistribution disguised as progress, with the young an healthy left holding the financial bag for those with the temerity to grow hold and less healthy.
Democrats generally scoffed at the notion that the current generation of young were being offered as sacrificial lambs for the codger demographic AND future generations of youth.
However, Michele Obama made her debut on the new Tonight Show on Thursday and used the occasion to reiterate the leftist opportunist enslavement of the young.
Her thesis: The young are knuckle heads, so its perfectly OK for big, nanny-state government to abuse and mislead them!
As reported at the reference:
First Lady Michele Obama in an interview on the “Tonight Show” joked that young people were “knuckleheads” who often had unexpected accidents and needed Obamacare.
“A lot of young people think they're invincible, but the truth is that young people are knuckleheads,” Obama told new host Jimmy Fallon on the late night show.
‘They’re the ones who are cooking for the first time and slice their finger open, they’re dancing on the bar stools,’ she continued to laughter. “But while young people think they’re invincible, they’re not.”
The first lady has taken a prominent role in the administration’s push for more young people to sign up for Obamacare’s insurance exchanges. But the administration is still behind their targets.
Young, healthier consumers are needed to enroll to keep the health law afloat and balance the larger numbers of older, sicker patients expected to sign up.
President Obama on Thursday also said that Obamacare enrollments were “close to 4 million” suggesting a continued surge in sign-ups, but leaving the administration still short of their 7 million target by the end of March 31.
The first lady’s comments came during a light interview with the new host of the iconic late night TV show.”
The Young are knuckle heads are they, Mrs. Obama?
And you are an intellectual elitist who has just gone on national TV in a desperate attempt to get enough “knuckle heads “ to sign up for this Ponzi scheme in order to make it work?
With all due respect, Mrs. Obama, but the real “knuckle heads” are folks like you and the president and most Democrats who think that young Americans can be lied to and fooled into accepting Marxist health care!
