I work for the State (sort of) and our provider is changing. They say there shouldn't be much impact, but we will have to wait and see. Those who have to pay out of pocket are getting hit so hard though.

Also blatant ignorance as to what "young" people actually do. Since most of the ones I know are either pretty damn successful in their own right or are on there way, hell even the less successful ones (Like me) own a house and have a family and work 40 hours a week, meanwhile we notice that older generations still can't wrap their brains around how the economy and politics work now a days. It's all shadow governments and conspiracies to "take r jerbs"
Only 27 percent of college grads have a job related to their major
53% of Recent College Grads Are Jobless or Underemployed

well the cost of living in the last 20 years or so has gone through the roof and is seemingly only going to get worse.......this is why kids stay at home for so long.....myself and most people i know of my generation were out of home before the age of 18 and back then it was quite easy to make ends meet and have a bit to spend at the end of it....these days it is becoming difficult to stay the least......it would seem obamacare is just making it harder for the common person....
It is too much. Health coverage should be completely free. It's pretty much a basic human right at this point, like internet access, a drivers license, college education etc etc etc.

Pshh where do you live? How old are you? Maybe you think your friends own that house they rent with three other friends? I have several very intelligent friends with multiple degrees that can't find work and are in extreme debt. I mean very intelligent top of the class.
That's the story with most of my generation, all scammed into crazy debt to get degrees in an economy with no jobs.
You can't presuppose that everyone of a certain age group is a certain way.
Basically older generations are mad that younger generations refuse to play these games anymore because we had access of information growing up and were able to better educate ourselves overall.
Great another thread where old people can "tsk tsk" at the younger people for the problems that they [older people] created...
I mean, name me one time where the younger people created a problem that the older folks are now facing.
