Young invincibles have the power to “kill” Obamacare

How to kill Obamacare without even trying | The Daily Caller.

A young invincible speaks…

In a refreshingly honest appraisal, Emanuel admits that Obamacare will virtually self-destruct if my demographic doesn’t come to its senses.

Federal grants have already paid $61 million to set up the one-stop health insurance shop, but the board is now being asked to approve another $125 million federal grant request.

So what;s the other $111 million going to be used for? There is mention of hiring and training “navigators” but that’s still going to leave $100 million.

Is it possible the exchange isn’t close to ready? Prediction: Chaos
