Krauthammer: Young People Are Going To Walk Away From Obamacare Because It's A Bad Deal For Them

|

JUAN WILLIAMS: The big question is for people who don't have that, who aren't covered by their parents or anyone else. Those folks who normally would say, "You know what? I don't have insurance. Nothing is ever going to happen to me. I'm young, I'm beautiful, you know, it doesn't matter. I'm so smart, I'm at Harvard. What happens when something happens?

BRET BAIER: I just want to make a point that you don't have to be good-looking to get health care.

WILLIAMS: Thank you.

CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: Or to get into Harvard. [Laughter]

Look, here you are actually appealing to young people. It isn't only because the young have a feeling of being invincible because you are offering a product where they are going to pay twice the market rate. They don't have a job. They are living in their parents' basement, and they are paying twice the market rate in order to subsidize older people who probably have a job or a pension. And that isn't a good deal, and that's why the young are going to walk away.

BAIER: Definitively?

KRAUTHAMMER: Absolutely. Positively. Even the ones who are good-looking.
