Oh please, let's try to nitpick some more. I caught you out. You didn't pay attention and you know it.

If he's 20, then he is easily old enough to have voted in the last election.

Oh - he is HOPPING mad!



Young Master Philosophy Student knows that what this is - isn't actually a letter doesn't he? Open - or otherwise

There is a generation or two that I'm guessing would have seriously appreciated having access to YouTube..Nixon would have really got some attention - boy howdy!

Hilarious

Looks like you are the one that can't handle the truth nor tell it. Where in the ACA does it tell the insurance companies to jack up rates? It doesn't they did that on their own this is what happens when you give companies a license to steal. The individual mandate is a companies wet dream.


The insurance companies wrote the darned bill. Of course it gave them a license to steal.
Too bad our Senators and Representatives had to pass it before they could read it and know what was in it.
Who do you think Barry represents? Not me and not you. He talks a good game, but some of us are old enough to have heard politicians talk before and we are not impressed with them. Any of them. He will retire to the multimillion dollar house in Hawaii that he did not pay for and live like a king for the rest of his life because he has taken care of big business in his terms as President.

Democrats and Republicans are two sides of the same coin. It is a filthy currency tarnished by greed and corruption that will no longer purchase honest representation for the American People. Democrats and Republicans conspire in Washington to scam, defraud, and extort money from the American people and give it to their butt buddy corporate friends.

Every election cycle we have to choose between the lying, thieving, whore mongering Democrat or the lying, thieving, whore mongering Republican After every election the headlines scream "REPUBLICANS WIN!" or they scream "DEMOCRATS WIN!". But they never, never, never scream "AMERICANS WIN!". Why is that? It is because when Democrats and Republicans win, Americans get screwed.

The only way Americans will ever have an honest government is to quit electing Democrats and Republicans. We need to elect citizen statesmen who love America more than they love power and money. Men who can stand on their own two feet instead of being propped up by gangs of criminals. Honest men with sweat on their brow and calluses on their hands.

The true patriot is not the man who blindly defends a corrupt government. The true patriot is the man who defends the Constitution from that government.

I gave you a star for the "boy howdy". It has been a long time since I heard somebody say that. Usually out on a hot dusty trail. How long will it be before some wet behind the ears young member here construes it as racist?

Says the guy who is now able to stay on his parent's medical policy, or get a college health care policy for cheap, because of Obamacare.......


Eh, nothing's changed - he's 20, and as a full-time student, he could've stayed on his parent's insurance without the ACA - that's how I provided coverage for my kids while they went to school.

And students could always buy student coverage as well - again, I know, I've bought one when I was between jobs. Of course, the ACA has caused the premiums to increase - it seems that each college has (or used to have) it's own custom offerings, usually via Aetna Student Health Plans. So, the increases are variable. but I've seen a roughly 33% percent increase.

20 years ago the work force looked a lot different for college graduates than it does now. I'm sorry about your daughter's health problems, I only know that my daughter had a student policy that cost her $20 per month and worked out great for her. Now that she's employed by the University, her policy is a little more expensive, but still affordable, and even more comprehensive

Today, I also have insurance, for the first time in 8 years, due to the ACA, that's hundreds of dollars less per year than I was paying back then, 8 years ago, and entirely more comprehensive. Back then I was paying over $100 a month for preventative doctor visits only, pap smear, breast exams, etc.. I was screwed if the tests turned up postive or if I actually got sick. Now, I can see a doctor for anything.

The theme for this entire thread should be: wet behind the ears (and righteous if misplaced indignation...)

A star for the star. I love words too - especially phrases that fall by the wayside

Michelle is an ignoramus, and she just made that perfectly clear.

Wait until those poor "knuckleheads" who can barely get by as it is, start to get fined by the Obama Care mandate that requires them to purchase health care coverage that they cannot afford. Same with poor people in general. Then when they can't pay the fines, it will go to collections, and then eventually end up destroying their credit report scores. Translated = Life ruined, no home or car loans, and no credit in general.

How about that hope and change eh? Obama sure is the champion for the unfortunate, now isn't he? LMAO!, You imbeciles who voted for this bankster owned fraud might finally wake up when you realize that his Socialist health care law is going to bankrupt most of you fools who voted for him, as well as many others who did not. ~$heopleNation

I think those same "knuckleheads" are the larger percentage of the folks on the front line with a gun in there hands.
1st ladies use to be classy, elegant women the did more than just yabbering and being offensive doing it.

I can imagine the laughter and sardonic looks videos like this get.

First of all he proved it is true by believing that people vote in the government, and that Obamacare is designed by Obama.

Then he believes the insane lies about the website costing 600 million because of incompetence.

In the end all I can see is a person who really knows not a THING about what goes on in the world, Michelle is right, KNUCKLEHEADS.

Good for you. Seriously. But thankfully, I still have my insurance, though the cost did go up. I looked into signing up for the ACA and it would have cost me even more. Since I would probably have to pay for all those others would could not afford it previously.

But now I am screwed and having to find a new doctor that can actually see me since my old one is now flooded with all the ACA patients. I hear he is thinking seriously of retiring.

The sarcastic side of me says that I should just go the illegal alien route and show up at the ER everytime I get sick and just ignore the bill. Why not? Every one else is doing it, right?

My biggest problems with this video are that it's not a complete view of reality, and it feels like another typical overreaction from one of Americas overly protected youth.

Why is everything worthy of outrage these days? Is it really incorrect to say young people do dumb things? We do have periods where our decision making is questionable, that's just basic psychology and human growth. Young people do make more stupid mistakes, that's reality. Young people also party more, and with parties comes more chances for "knuckleheaded" moments, there is no debate.

It's great that this guy has high self esteem, and wants to stand up for the youth, but his view does not match the world as I've seen it. Her view is a long held truth. Some young people are mature beyond their years, but most are very capable of going full stupid. I wish I had this guys optimistic view of young people, but If we accept the full picture, her point isn't all that outrageous.

"Why is everything worthy of outrage these days?"

Simply because everything coming from the Govt. is outrageous.

What are "Obamacare policies"?

Why isn't this kid insulted by the Koch Bros campaign encouraging young college people to forego insurance by plying them with beer?


Maybe because the Koch brothers aren't the government and aren't forcing him to do anything?

You people must have a big hat full of BS to keep pulling it out of nowhere like this.

No, he said he was part of the generation that put Obama there, twice. That doesn't mean "he" specifically did it twice.


He was implying that he was somehow part of what got Obama elected to office when odds are, that nothing could be further from the truth. Judging by his little rant, I doubt he would have voted for Obama, even if he could have.

Like I said, he probably is a "knucklehead."


You keep showing yourself to be what you accuse him of being.

He said he is part of the GENERATION that helped put Obama in office. He is correct. The young voters had an impact on getting him in office. The student is a young person, hence part of the generation that helped put Obama in office.

Stop sucking Obama's teet man, you're embarrassing yourself.

Philosophy majors get all kinds of jobs, even if they choose not to to teach.


Sure they do! Especially in this economy! And, Oh yeah, philosophy teachings jobs are a dime a dozen too!



The kid is smart enough, I bet, not to fall for a sucker-scam like Scientology in his youth.


Looks to me like he's already been suckered into a swarmy scam of his own!



You are so very pitiful. I honestly feel bad for you.

That's cool that YOU are now getting something for nothing.

Good for YOU, good for you.

Do you ever think of the other 300 million+ people in this country, or just yourself?

I am extremely low income and eligible for the ACA's subsidized plans. I would pay almost nothing. I have several ongoing health issues. I refuse to sign up. It's not other people's responsibility to pay for MY healthcare.

You know what that's called? Putting my money where my mouth is. Few people do it. I could get basically free healthcare and I refuse, maybe some day you will realize people with principals actually stand true, even if it hurts them.

James 1982,

If that's the year you were born, you're gonna need to come back and talk to me about me and my health care issues in about 30 years before I'll be taking your criticism and your advise seriously.

In the meantime James, watch out for hyper tension, it's a killer, and take care of your health. Do it for your loved ones, do it for your children and grandchildren. Obamacare is politics. Your life and your well being are not. Don't strain yourself over something that's out of your hands.

Your situation reminds of the parable about a guy who wouldn't leave his home when floods came. He died after rejecting all kinds of help because he was sure God would save him. But God said, "I sent you tons of help, why didn't you take it?"

Don't reject all kinds of help James.
