"It profits me but little that a vigilant authority always protects the tranquillity of my pleasures and constantly averts all dangers from my path, without my care or concern, if this same authority is the absolute master of my liberty and my life."

--Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

Why Obamacare Can't Work... Episode 503

Jay Cost tweeted this today:

Yes, the glitches do increase the death spiral potential. As many have noted, Obamacare only works if young health people who don't really need much health insurance sign up for overpriced insurance to subsidize "affordable" insurance for sick older people. But here's a few things you might have observed about young people nowadays:

  • Laziness.
  • Clothes on the floor.
  • Dishes in the sink.
  • Bed unmade.
  • No job.
  • Video game obsessions.
  • Credit cards maxed.
  • Lots of drinking, lots of pot smoking.
  • Horny.
  • Spend a lot of time on Twitter, Facebook, etc.
Do you really think people like that are going to want to take their time and spend hours working through a complex web enrollment form that seems to be constantly breaking down and dumping them out?   These are kids who get mad if their Internet streaming is too slow.
