I don't know who the Obama youth are, but maybe if they gave them a free app or maybe an Itunes card.....................or maybe they could link their policy to their Facebook page...... or send a tweet that they just signed up..............

CNN’s Burnett Gets Rand Paul to Admit ‘Maybe’ Kentucky Represents an Obamacare Success Story




With a steady stream of bad news about the rollout of the Affordable Care Act hitting the airwaves on a daily basis, the state of Kentucky has represented a potential bright spot. A red state with a Democratic governor, Kentucky has stood out in its ability to sign up uninsured residents using the state-based exchange, managing to actually outpace its enrollment estimate.

On Tuesday evening, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul appeared on CNN’s Out Front with Erin Burnett and reluctantly admitted that there may be some good news about Obamacare coming out of his home state.

Burnett said she decided to report the “good news” on Obamacare Tuesday night “because I know that you’ve heard the bad news.” In her interview with Paul she highlighted a new report that shows 41% of Kentuckians who have signed up under the new law are under 35 years old, which is above the administration’s threshold for success of 40%. “That’s pretty impressive,” she said. “Are you going to say Kentucky is a success story for Obamacare?”

Initially, Paul rejected the suggestion, focusing instead of the people in his state who have “had their insurance canceled” under Obamacare. “The number being canceled dwarfs the number actually signing up,” he said. “So no, if that’s a success, I hesitate to see a failure.”

Burnett responded by saying that the new plans being offered to those people may very well be “better” than the ones that were canceled. “At least I have to get you on the record,” she pressed. “If young people are signing up in Kentucky, and you’re getting the math right there, that opens the door to Obamacare succeeding, right? I mean, you gotta acknowledge that.”

“Maybe,” Paul answered, going as far as he intended to go in agreeing with Burnett’s premise. He then returned to his original argument about people’s plans being canceled. When Burnett again suggested that many of those people will eventually sign up for new health care plans, Paul once again responded, “Maybe… They’re being canceled because they have something less expensive and President Obama wants them to buy one of his four plans, which are more expensive.”

Paul even admitted that “maybe” the new plans people will enroll in under the Affordable Care Act will have “better care” but reiterated that he believed they would be “more expensive” and “may not be” what people want.

Ironic that the results in Kentucky are promising - the home state of two of the most negative senators in the US Senate - Rand Paul and Mitch McConnell. Both would rather see health care fail than serve the citizens that they are supposed to represent back home.

I can't help but wonder what percentage of people, say....27 to 34 do not have health insurance....

....and just do not see the need.

I guess signing up will replace registering for the draft? ( although its not much of a worry these days). The goverment may as well just attach W-2s from employers to your medical file and your annual 1040 to be part of this all inclusive application. Medical coverage and tax auditing will all be avaialble for policy review by some bureaucrat now.

But wait, they are getting free birth control. The Obama youth must be psyched.

i don't think this is that surprising. let them pay the penalty on their taxes and wait for the financial horror stories come out. slowly but surely this will change. what i wonder is will people wait until after something bad happens and try and file bankrupcy thinking that will save them?

edit
once they realize that their cost to see a doctor when they have a cold is almost (just guessing) 1/2 to full cost of full insurance, things will change. like i said i don't know what a doctor visit costs without insurance but i bet i'm pretty close on what i said.

lol edit again
lol one trip to the emergency room after falling off a rope swing while out camping and drinking with friends would do it too. my co-pay for emergency room visits with anthem is $250 and that doesn't count any other costs incured.

another thing, will youths under 26 be covered under parents ACA coverage? i think they will, or is it only private employer coverage? anyhow, that would/will explain alot of why youths don't even need to sign up until they are 26. so if parents ACA coverage covers them until 26 then the pool is alot smaller. now people over 26 alot are starting families so they need insurance. i wouldn't want to pay cash for a baby. its much too early to make a judgement on what is happening pro or con with the ACA period.

Many may be low information voters, but they're supposedly tech savvy. Forcing them to buy an expensive product they don't want and probably can't afford is hard enough....But do you really expect them to get jazzed up about entering a bunch of personal info on a site with such dire security issues?

lol sometimes this conversation seems like trying to get your child to eat their peas.

edit
ok, the only piece of info to be worried about is your SS #. now that is important but it can be found in any number of ways online now. you have more to fear from private sector sites being hacked and getting your info.

Just keep spreading those lies about ACORN. How reprehensible do you have to be to take glee in the demise of a not for profit group that worked to promote democracy by registering people to vote.

I guess you object that they were registering people of color.

Reprehensible.

quote:
The GAO just released their finding that there was no reason for the congressional abolition of ACORN.

Better late than never, I suppose. Thanks to the Democratic leadership for sticking it to an ally because they were so afraid of the manufactured controversy:

A report issued today by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) finds little to support the charges that led to the demise of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), a grassroots consumer advocacy organization driven out of existence by Congressional critics.

The GAO found that monitoring of awards to ACORN by government agencies generally consisted of reviewing progress reports and making site visits. Of 22 investigations of alleged election and voter registration fraud, most were closed without prosecution, the report found.

One of eight investigations of alleged voter registration fraud resulted in guilty pleas and seven were closed without action due to lack of evidence.

The Federal Election Commission (FEC) reported five closed matters – one resolved, one dismissed and the others dropped after FEC "found no reason to believe the violations occurred."

[...] In 2009, conservative activists released selectively edited videos claiming to show ACORN employees giving advice on hiding prostitution activities and avoiding taxes.

The videos created a nationwide controversy that resulting in Congress passing laws that prohibited federal funds from being awarded to ACORN. The group disbanded in March 2010 In December 2009, New York U.S. District Court Judge Nina Gershon ruled that Congress had violated the Constitution by singling out ACORN and banning it from receiving federal funds but the ruling was overturned by a federal appeals court, which found that federal funds amounted to only 10 percent of ACORN's funding and therefore Congress' action did not amount to punishment, even though it may have been unjustified.

The GAO report identified about $48 million in federal grants and contracts that had been awarded to ACORN and its affiliates from 2005 to 2009.

I suppose you believe that none the problems that surround ACORN are self-inflicted? No surprise. They never are, they're always someone else's fault.
