Eugene Delgaudio: "Youth For Obama Get the Shaft From President on Healthcare"

Discussing the rising cost of government mandated healthcare for college students.

The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons is reporting:

College students will soon wake up to the fact that they have been had. While they were overwhelmingly supportive of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA or "ObamaCare") when their charismatic President was championing it, they will not be pleased when they find out that there is a huge price they will have to pay. ObamaCare will be anything but affordable.

Apparently, New Jersey is the only state in the nation that currently requires all college students to have healthcare coverage. This has always been a bare-bones plan costing from $100-600 per year. The new healthcare regulations will force these plans to be phased out, as the mandated coverage under ObamaCare will cause the premiums to rise from a few hundred dollars to $1,700 per year.

In an amazing example of irony, New Jersey Democrat Assemblywoman Celeste Riley is sponsoring a bill to eliminate New Jersey's mandatory health insurance for college students. Wait. Didn't Democrats overwhelmingly support the President's plan when it was being debated? Aren't college students citizens that should be required to purchase government-approved coverage as defined by Obama's PPACA?
