Golly gee, what a surprise

Daily Kos:

I’m about to pay $8665 a year for crappy high deductible insurance in NYS…the older and sicker will in effect be subsidized by the young and healthy…The task facing the administration is Herculean, quite literally changing the psyche of the American people…The biggest and most critical hurdle is to sell the young 18-34 year old cohort on the need for them to enroll. Without this group of Americans, which the Administration estimates is around 2.7 million strong, the exchanges will implode

It’s not a bug, it’s a feature. Oh, BTW, check out the last two sentences of the piece. They’re priceless.

    re the last two sentences

    Heh. I didn’t know they could say such things at the Kos.

    Read the comments over there. They have no idea why this happened. They really have no understanding of economics, and have bought into so much bullshit, that they never will know what hit them. They will be sure of one thing though – it’s not their fault. They should get what they want, and it should always be affordable just because that’s what they want. If not, then it must be the fault of everybody and everything but them.

    Ah, but the legislature decided that my wife should get free mammograms, and my daughter a free college physical. All of which is ultimately paid for by the consumer, with the overhead of insurance companies, government employees to oversee the insurance companies, and healthcare providers’ overhead to try to get paid by the insurance companies. You cannot buy catastrophic healthcare coverage in New York. We’re too stupid to understand no free mammograms.
