Generation Sucker: Healthcare Edition

Obamacare Is Really, Really Bad For You, Especially If You're Young - Forbes: "“[T]oday’s young people will be tomorrow’s old people,” says Matthew Yglesias of Slate, so while this arrangement may not benefit the young now, it will eventually do so. A senior official at the AARP echoes this sentiment, insisting, “If a younger, healthier person is spending a little more now, it’s okay because at some point they’re going to be a less healthy, older person too.”"

Wonderful! Another inter-generational contract. So that tomorrow's old people will have an incentive to make sure that tomorrow's young people will have the same lousy deal that they had when they were young. All the inefficiencies of government plus inter-generational warfare! Hopey-Changey!
