Can **anyone** honestly claim to be surprised by this "news"?Almost all of the many predictions of the ultimate train wreck of Obamacare,
the initial stages of which we are now witnessing, are predicated on patterns of
human behavior that are as predictable as a sunset.The only
uncertainties about this disaster is how much damage it will do in the short and
I'll be honest. If I was in young and healthy demographic I would put off
signing up for insurance for as long as possible; aka the day of or the day
before the deadline. I don't think that anyone really expected the young
and healthy to be gungho about signing up for insurance as soon as the exchanges
opened.We would have seen this whether or not the website worked on
launch or not.
It is just part of the ongoing need to shift the fiscal irresponsibility of the
baby boomers to their children and grandchildren. We did not need to save or
plan or curtail our spending. Now we need someone to bail us out. Instead of
paying for our health care with our savings, we expect our children and
grandchildren to subsidize it for us. We have squandered an incredible amount
of wealth over the past 40 years.
