WASHINGTON (WNB) - The Obama administration is struggling with the fact healthy young adults are not signing up for Obamacare. Without healthy individuals buying insurance, taxpayers are left to pay for coverage of the legions of unhealthy people who are enrolling.
"This is something no one could have anticipated," said HHS head Kathy Sebelius. "Who knew young healthy young people would rather spend the $200 a month on things like beer and video games?"
The problem is especially acute with young Hispanics, many of them here illegally. "We told them we wouldn't deport them, and since they don't have any money, the health care is almost free, but still they won't buy. We may be forced to pay them to sign up or something," said Sebelius.
